Call for Proposals: Health and Climate Solutions

Jan 07, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is offering a funding opportunity to develop and amplify the evidence around a set of approaches that improve community health and well-being and advance health equity, while also addressing climate change adaptation or mitigation.

Eligible, local approaches can focus on one or more of a range of determinants of health—including, but not limited to: air quality; energy sources; transportation or mobility design; food and water systems; housing; and health systems. Proposals should specify the determinants of health that the given approach is addressing, and the expected impact on health and well-being.

Grant funds will support research and evaluation activities to develop the best possible evidence highlighting what is working well with the select approach and why; where there have been opportunities and challenges; and how other communities may learn from this approach to tackle similar challenges.

All interventions eligible for this funding must have been implemented and active for at least one year as of the date of the application.

The application deadline is February 8, 2019. Learn more.
