Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations and institutions, as well as individual journalists, for health care journalism initiatives. Funding is available for activities such as health reporting, documentary films and related public engagement campaigns, and relevant educational opportunities for reporters.

Funding is intended to support journalism that informs efforts to improve the health of Americans, and that examines emerging health issues and their implications for cost, quality, and access.

Proposals will be judged using the following criteria:

- Significance: Is the proposed topic area or project objective important and significant?

- Impact: Is the project likely to result in products or other deliverables that improve the public’s health literacy or understanding of emerging health issues and their implications for cost, quality, and access? Will the products or other deliverables be disseminated to appropriate target audiences in ways that can maximize the project’s impact?

- Design: Are the activities proposed appropriate to accomplishing the project objectives? How will the project team deal with anticipated challenges in completing the project?

- Timeliness: Will the proposed project be completed in a reasonable time frame to have sufficient impact?

- Qualifications of Key Personnel: Do the key personnel have the necessary experience to complete this project successfully?
