Funding for health impact assessments (HIAs) is now available through the Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts.
HIAs identify and address the health impacts of decisions in a variety of sectors. Whether it is agriculture, education, transportation, energy, or criminal justice, policymakers at all levels can make a difference by factoring health into the decisions they make.
This year's funding will support two types of initiatives:
1)HIA demonstration projects that inform a specific decision, with a focus on tribes, states and territories that have limited experience with HIAs to date. Up to six grants of $100,000 each will be awarded.
2)HIA program grants that enable organizations with previous HIA experience to develop sustainable HIA programs that integrate HIAs and related approaches in policymaking at the local, state, or tribal level. Up to five grants of $250,000 will be awarded.
Deadline to submit is April 2, 2014.
