    The NewSchools Venture Fund is a national nonprofit that supports and invests in promising entrepreneurs and teams of educators eager to re-imagine learning and helps them accomplish their goal of achieving outstanding results for the schools, students, and educators they serve. The fund is committed to helping students graduate high school prepared and inspired to achieve their most ambitious dreams and plans.

    To advance this mission, the fund is accepting applications for its Innovative Schools program.

    Through the program, the fund will invest in new and redesigned pre-K-12 public schools across the country, in both school districts and charter networks. Priority will be given to schools that prepare students — regardless of the future they might want to pursue — with everything they need to be successful in college, career, and life.

    The fund is seeking teams of educators who begin with a clear definition of student success as their guide and can design a school that meets the full range of their students' needs. Investments include new schools, redesigned schools, and partnerships with model providers. However, this particular funding opportunity will focus only on teams planning to launch a new school in the next one to three years.

    NewSchools will select the most promising teams of educators for investments in their planning phase. Funding support will range between $50,000 and $200,000 and will include participation in a cohort experience to help teams refine their designs and prepare for launch within the next one to two years.

    Founded in 1857, the The Atlantic has throughout its history championed the power of big ideas and continues to shape global debate across print, digital, events, and video platforms.

    As part of its mission, the media company, in partnership with Allstate, has issued a Call for Nominations for its 2019 Renewal Awards. The annual program recognizes nonprofits across the country for their innovative, grassroots approaches to driving change in their communities and bringing progress to the country. Now in its fourth year, this national competition was created to celebrate the social innovation demonstrated by thousands of nonprofits that are finding creative solutions to America’s most pressing problems.

    Nominees will be evaluated based on an innovative solution (a new idea for tackling a difficult problem), impact (how are nonprofits measuring and proving their ideas work?), and scale (how can an idea be scaled and replicated in other communities?). Once nominees are selected, the public will be invited to vote on the solutions they believe have the most promise for their communities. 

    For this year’s awards, five winners will be selected to receive grants of $20,000 and to attend a national summit hosted by The Atlantic in spring 2019.

    The Russell Sage Foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for the final funding round of its Social, Economic and Political Effects of the Affordable Care Act program.

    The program supports innovative social science research on the social, economic, and political effects of the Affordable Care Act. The foundation is especially interested in funding analyses that address important questions about the effects of the reform on outcomes such as financial security and family economic well-being, labor supply and demand, participation in other public programs, family and children’s outcomes, and differential effects by age, race, ethnicity, nativity, or disability status. The foundation also is interested in research that examines the political effects of the implementation of the new law, including changes in views about government, support for future government policy changes, or the impact on policy development outside of health care.

    Funding is available for secondary analysis of data or for original data collection. Projects that propose novel uses of existing data and projects that propose to analyze newly available or underutilized data are welcomed. The foundation will not fund research on the effects of the ACA on healthcare delivery or health outcomes (e.g., barriers to implementation, changes in the quality of care and health status, or trends in enrollment and affordability), as other funders already do that.

    Grant requests are limited to no more than a two-year period, with a maximum of $150,000 (including overhead) per project.

    The quality of one’s health is determined by multiple factors: the natural environment, economic opportunities, genetic factors and, to a small degree, medical care. Yet, for many people, it is the conditions in which they live that impact their health the most. Many neighborhoods experience limited access to affordable fresh food, safe places for recreation, high-quality education and living-wage jobs. People who live in these neighborhoods may be exposed to environmental hazards due to the proximity of polluting industries and substandard housing. Improving these conditions promotes health equity among people in low-income neighborhoods and fosters improved health for entire communities.

    Community residents often have a sophisticated understanding of the challenges they face and the solutions that will alleviate these challenges. Equitable and sustainable solutions are best created when leaders of community-based organizations truly engage residents in creating strategies to address neighborhood priorities. Together, they can achieve results that are superior and more durable than solutions imposed from the outside.

    Community-driven solutions are locally determined and contextually appropriate approaches to influence changes in policies, systems, services and practices that create equitable conditions that affect the health and well-being of communities. Local and place-based approaches hold the potential create meaningful and lasting impact and serve as new models for community change.

    Through this focus area, we work to:

    Improve housing affordability and quality through local policy changes

    Support communities to achieve their aspirations to drive more equitable policies, systems and practices.

    Increase the adoption of food-oriented development.

    Increase the adoption of inclusive or community-driven models of community development that address community conditions such as housing, food systems and safety.
