The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a Call for Applications for its 2018 Culture of Health Prize, an annual program that honors outstanding community efforts and partnerships that are helping people live healthier lives.
Through the program, up to ten communities will be awarded a $25,000 cash prize and have their accomplishments celebrated and shared broadly, with the goal of raising awareness and inspiring locally driven change across the country. Community partners can decide together how to use the funds to benefit their community.
The RWJF Culture of Health Prize is a place-based prize that honors whole U.S. communities; applications representing the work of a single organization or initiative will not be considered.
To be eligible, a community must be based in the United States. For the purposes of the program, a community is defined as a town, city, county, tribe or tribal community, or region. Each community will be required to designate a local U.S. governmental or tax-exempt public charity operating in its community to accept the $25,000 prize on the community's behalf should it win.
