Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Announces 2017 Culture of Health Prize

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a Call for Applications for its 2017 Culture of Health Prize, an annual program that honors outstanding community efforts and partnerships that are helping people live healthier lives.

Up to ten communities will be awarded a $25,000 cash prize and have their accomplishments celebrated and shared broadly, with the goal of raising awareness and inspiring locally driven change across the country. Community partners can decide together how to use the funds to benefit the community.

The RWJF Culture of Health Prize is a place-based prize that honors whole U.S. communities; applications representing the work of a single organization or initiative will not be considered.

To be eligible, a community must be based in the United States. For the sake of the program, a community is defined as a town, city, county, tribe or tribal community, or region. Each winning communities will be required to designate a local U.S. governmental or tax-exempt public charity operating in its community to accept the $25,000 prize on its behalf.

Phase I applications must be received no later than November 3, 2016. Upon review, invitations will be extended to select communities to submit Phase II applications by December 9. Phase II applications for invited communities are due by January 20, 2017.

For complete program guidelines and application procedures, see the RWJF website.
