Community Funding Opportunity: $25,000 prize. Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Pass along:


Greetings MRC Units,

We would like to inform you about an upcoming funding opportunity from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The RWJF Culture of Health Prize is awarded to communities that have placed a priority on health and creating powerful partnerships within communities to make a change.

The $25,000 prize honors those communities that are committed to, not only providing access to good quality care, but also to addressing the barriers to better health by transforming our neighborhoods, schools, and businesses so that good health flourishes. This is an incredible opportunity to showcase the work of your unit and how it has impacted your community.

The cash prize will be designated to a local US governmental or tax exempt public charity (i.e. housing organization, or MRC unit with 501c3 status). Up to 10 communities will be awarded this prize.

The RWJF Culture of Health Prize is awarded to a “community” that fits into the following categories:
• Town

• City

• County

• Tribe or Tribal Community

• Region (such as contiguous towns, cities, or counties)

Because the prize recognizes whole communities, You will need to convey a multi-partner approach when applying.

September 17, 2014 3 p.m. ET
