Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Health Leaders Program Announces Call for Nominations
Deadline: October 22, 2010 (Brief Nominations)

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Health Leaders program each year honors outstanding and otherwise unrecognized individuals who overcome daunting odds to improve health and healthcare, especially to underserved populations in communities across the United States. The program aims to elevate the work of these unsung heroes through enhanced recognition, technical assistance, and new leadership opportunities.

To be considered for a CHL award, a nominee must have contributed significantly to improving health and healthcare in his or her community; have created or substantially enhanced an initiative that improves access to and quality of care or services in his or her community; have positively affected a significant number of people in the targeted community; be in midcareer, with a three- to ten-year record of accomplishment associated with the community health issue for which he/she is nominated; not have received significant national recognition for his or her work; be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or its territories; and be affiliated with a public or nonprofit organization that is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The program will make up to ten awards in the amount of $125,000 each for the 2011 cycle. Each new leader will receive a personal award of $20,000 to recognize his or her accomplishments and $105,000 to support a defined two-year project at the organization with which the leader is associated.
