Local Initiative Funding Partners Program
Applications Invited for Local Initiative Funding Partners Program
Deadline: July 15, 2003
The Local Initiative Funding Partners (LIFP) program, a partnership between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (http://www.rwjf.org) and local grantmakers, supports innovative, community-based projects designed to improve health and healthcare for underserved and at-risk populations.
Through the program, local grantmakers such as community foundations, family foundations, and corporate grantmakers are invited to propose a partnership to be co-funded by RWJF. Grants may be made to community nonprofit organizations or institutions. Projects funded through the program must be nominated by a local funder.
The program will provide grants of $100,000 to $500,000 per project — funds that must be matched by local grant-makers. The total amount will be paid out over a three- to four-year period. In 2004, up to $8 million will be awarded through the program.
For more information on the program, eligibility requirements, and the application process, see the RWJF Web site.
