Purpose: The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is looking globally for ideas to help us build a Culture of Health in the United States, where everyone has the opportunity to live healthier lives, no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they make.We are looking for projects, programs, and models that promote health equity and are aligned with our Culture of Health Action Framework; this year, we have a particular interest in ideas that:

  • Build healthy places;
  • Build social connection across the lifespan;
  • Get and keep children healthy;
  • Integrate health and social services; and Increase the health care system’s focus on the root causes of poor health.

We will give priority to approaches that have demonstrated impact but have not been widely tested or implemented in the United States.

Receipt Date: May 31, 2016 by 3:00 p.m. ET
Total Awards:
  • We will support grants from $50,000 up to $250,000 (USD), for up to 18 months. The total number of grants is undetermined.
  • This funding opportunity will remain open for three months; however, decisions about modifications to the program and the duration of the program will be made by RWJF at its sole discretion.
  • The grant opportunity outlined in this call for proposals is contingent upon final funding confirmation from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for such grants.
Eligibility: We are looking for applicants who represent organizations from a wide range of fields and disciplines—both within and outside the health sector. We seek to attract diversity of thought, professional background, race, ethnicity, and cultural perspective in our applicant pool. Building a Culture of Health means integrating health into all aspects of society, so we encourage multisector partnerships and collaboration.

We encourage proposals from both U.S.-based applicants with ideas for adapting an overseas model and international applicants with ideas that could work in the United States.
