The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for its Health and Climate Solutions Program.
Through the program, RWJF seeks 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. Brief proposals should specify the determinants of health that the given approach is addressing as well as the expected impact on health and well-being. Grant funds will support research and evaluation activities aimed at developing the best possible evidence highlighting what is working well with the select approach and why; where there are opportunities and challenges; and how other communities may learn from the approach to tackle similar challenges. All interventions eligible for funding must have been implemented and active for at least one year at the time of application.
Up to eight grants of up to $350,000 each will be awarded over two years.
The foundation will host informational webinars on January 7, 2019 (3:00 to 4:30 p.m. ET) and January 15, 2019 (8:00 to 9:30 p.m. ET). Registration is required.
