Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Proposals for Active Living Research Program
Deadline: September 1, 2004 (Cycle Two)

Active Living Research (formerly Active Living Policy and Environmental Studies), a $12.5 million program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was created to stimulate and support research that identifies environmental factors and policies that influence physical activity. Findings are expected to inform environmental and policy changes that will promote active living among Americans.

The program seeks proposals that describe research designed to improve understanding of the environmental and policy correlates of physical activity in one or more of the following population subgroups: children and adolescents; low-income and ethnic minority groups; older adults; people with physical challenges; and residents of rural areas.

Proposals must address one of the following topics: environmental characteristics and physical activity in under-studied populations; or the impact of changes in community environments or policies on physical activity.

Proposals for cycle two funding may request up to $150,000 over two years, and Applicants may apply as a new investigator for this round of funding. In addition, funds are available for Dissertation Awards.

Preference will be given to applicants who are either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

All proposals other than those requesting dissertation funding must be submitted through the RWJF Grantmaking Online system:
