The Robert Wood Johnson Community Health Leadership

Program honors community health leaders for their work in addressing some of today’s most complex health problems in communities across the United States. The award includes a grant of $120,000 — $105,000 for support of the leader’s program, and $15,000 as a personal stipend.

Community-based health providers and advocates in mid-career who have created or significantly improved health programs in local communities where healthcare needs have been ignored and unmet are eligible to be nominated.

Nominees must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the fifty states, D.C., or Puerto Rico. In addition, they must currently be working in their own local community(not on a national or international level) in affiliation with a nonprofit or government agency on a three-quarter to full-time basis. Under this program, “mid-career” is defined as not less than five and not more than a total of fifteen years in the field of community-based health.

The program welcomes nominations of people who are addressing factors that affect the overall health of communitymembers, including promotion of healthy behaviors, mental health, youth development, violence prevention, environmental health, and community development.

Nominations are invited from consumers, community leaders,health professionals, government officials, and others who have been personally inspired by people providing essential community health services. Nominations from development and public relations departments or professional grant-writers cannot be accepted.
