Public Health Law Research Grants
Deadline: May 19, 2009

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) Public Health Law Research (PHLR) program has released its first call for proposals to fund studies that will examine how laws can improve public health. Studies funded through this program will be at the intersection of two disciplines: law and public health. Other disciplines, such as medicine, economics, sociology, psychology and public policy and administration may also be involved in these studies. About $3.5 million are available for funding through the first call for proposals for two types of studies. Short-term studies that include legal research, policy analysis or public health implications of specific laws or regulations, will be funded up to $150,000 each for up to 18 months. Complex and comprehensive legal and public health studies that include multistate, long-term analyses and other in-depth evaluations of laws will be funded up to $400,000 each for up to 30 months.
