RWJF Invites LOIs for Investigator-Initiated Research to Build a Culture of Health

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for its Evidence for Action: Investigator-Initiated Research to Build a Culture of Health, a national program that supports the foundation’s commitment to building a Culture of Health in the United States.

The program aims to provide individuals, organizations, communities, policymakers, and researchers with the empirical evidence needed to address the key determinants of health encompassed in the Culture of Health Action Framework, as well as efforts to assess outcomes and set priorities for action. It will do this by encouraging and supporting creative, rigorous research on the impact of innovative programs, policies, and partnerships on health and well-being, and on novel approaches to measuring health determinants and outcomes.

RWJF expects to fund between five and twelve grants annually for periods of up to thirty months. The foundation anticipates that this funding opportunity will remain open for at least a period of three years; however, decisions about modifications to the program and the duration of the program will be made by RWJF at its sole discretion.

Applicants must be either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories.

Since applications are accepted on a rolling basis, there is no deadline for submission. Generally, applicants can expect to be notified within six to eight weeks of submitting their Letters of Intent. Applicants invited to participate in the full proposal stage will have two months to submit their proposal once they receive notification. Full proposal funding decisions will generally be made within six to eight weeks of the submission deadline.
