Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Seeks Proposals for Community Solutions for Health Equity Program – Oct 7

Posted by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on September 22, 2020

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a call for proposals for its Community Solutions for Health Equity program.

Launched in the summer of 2019, the program seeks to elevate the voices of communities of color and other communities left out of discussions when local healthcare systems in the United States are creating policy. Racism and bias are often at the root of communities of color and other communities being excluded from policy considerations, often by design. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted ways in which communities of color are disproportionately burdened by racist and oppressive systems — from health care to education to housing — with significant consequences to physical and mental health.

Through the program, a total of nine grants of up to $300,000 over three years will be awarded in support of efforts by diverse consumer groups and community-based organizations to identify a problem that negatively affects consumers; envision solutions to the problem; and partner with healthcare systems to implement those solutions.

Letters of Intent are due October 7, 2020. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by January 18, 2021.
