RWJF Invites Applications for Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Implementation Projects

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in partnership with the Center for Sharing Public Health Services, is accepting applications from up to seven teams engaged in public health cross-jurisdictional sharing implementation efforts.

Through its CJS Implementation and Impact Measurement Program, grants of up to $75,000 will be awarded to teams to measure — with baseline and follow-up data collection points — the impact of their arrangements. Funded teams also will receive technical assistance related to both project implementation and impact measurement. Eligible CJS arrangements must include a minimum of three contiguous jurisdictions of any size, or two contiguous jurisdictions if the combined population is 50,000 or greater.

To be eligible for the award, the applicant must either represent an existing multi-jurisdictional collaboration or be a standalone entity operating for, or on behalf of, multiple jurisdictions (e.g., a regional health department) and must deliver public health programs, services, or functions. In addition, the applicant organization must be located in the United States or its territories. Also, the applicant organization must be a state or local government agency, a tribal group recognized by the U.S. federal government, or a nonprofit organization that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.
