RWJF–NRPA Award for Health Equity

Feb 21, 2020 | Michelle Shapiro

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)-NRPA Award for Health Equity recognizes an individual, or team of no more than two individuals, who has successfully implemented a systems change approach to reduce health disparities in his/her community within the past two years. The award supports RWJF’s Culture of Health initiative that seeks to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to live in healthy environments. The awardee will receive a $3,000 prize and an opportunity to be recognized nationally both at the NRPA Annual Conference and at an annual RWJF ceremony.

Who should apply/be nominated: Any individual or team of individuals affiliated with a local park and recreation agency (e.g., employee, board member, city official, public health department employee, advocate, etc.) should apply. The local park and recreation agency must be a member of NRPA. Applicants are welcome to self-nominate or nominate a deserving peer.

Learn more and apply. The application deadline is March 27.
