Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Accepting Proposals for Health Data for Action Projects

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a Request for Proposals for its Health Data for Action program, which supports innovative research that uses available data to answer important research questions.

Through the program, grants of up to $150,000 over twelve months will be awarded to support projects that use data from either the Health Care Cost Institute or athenahealth to produce relevant, innovative, and actionable research that answers important policy-relevant questions. Successful applicants will be provided with access to these sources, which provide a wealth of private claims data and rich detail on care delivery and patient obesity-related measures.

Projects may be generated from a variety of disciplines, including economics, sociology, political science, public health, public administration, law, business administration, or other related fields. Use of the data under this CFP is restricted to non-commercial use.

Researchers, as well as practitioners in the public and private sector working with researchers, are eligible to submit a proposal on behalf of their organizations. Preference may be given to applicants that are either a public entity or a nonprofit organization that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Brief proposals must be received no later than May 24, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by June 23, 2017.

The foundation will be hosting an informational webinar for prospective applicants on May 2, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. (EST).

See the RWJF for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
