Grants to USA and Territories nonprofits, for-profits, government agencies, and academic institutions for research projects that address the efficacy and impact of housing policies. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Priority will be given to proposals that address how such policies affect racial equity in housing and neighborhood conditions.
For this call for proposals (CFP), the Policies for Action (P4A) research program is accepting proposals investigating the effectiveness of state, county, and city public policies aimed at increasing housing affordability and stability, addressing racial segregation and isolation from opportunity, and increasing access to opportunity-rich neighborhoods and place-based resources.
RWJF is particularly interested in understanding how such policies affect racial equity in housing and neighborhood conditions. Given the extensive evidence that already links housing affordability, stability, and neighborhood quality to health, RWJF do not require that the proposed research examine the impact of policy changes on individuals’ health outcomes. The research must, however, centrally focus on evaluation of impact or implementation of one or more public policies.
RWJF is especially interested in proposals that can shed light on policies being implemented in small- and medium-sized cities, which is defined as having populations between 50,000 and 500,000. RWJF is also interested in proposals that can inform policies in different types of housing markets, economic conditions, and geographic locations.
Methods and designs that have been successful in the past vary and include natural experiments; implementation research; microsimulation studies; randomized controlled trials; linkages and analyses of existing data sources; mixed-methods analyses; and qualitative research. Various data sources can be proposed to be analyzed, such as social service and other public records; restricted-access survey or administrative data; social media data; and marketing data. Given that it can take a long time to gain access to restricted data, preference will be given to investigators who already have access to any restricted-use data proposed, as well as data that can be disaggregated by race/ethnicity. Investigators may also propose research that would serve as a continuation or supplement to other existing programs or research studies.
For more information on proposal preferences, as well as a list of potential research questions, see: https://anr.rwjf.org/viewCfp.do?cfpId=1508&cfpOverviewId3D#page=2.
Grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, and other direct project expenses, including a limited amount of equipment essential to the project.
