Grant to a USA or territories nonprofit organization or public agency to lead and manage a prize to advance health initiatives. Funding is intended to promote health equity, a culture of healthy living, and transform neighborhoods, businesses, and schools to achieve health and wellness for all.
This solicitation provides applicants the opportunity to put forward a vision and approach to re-design the national Prize, responsive to the goals and design parameters set forth in this CFP. The Prize will continue as a national recognition prize that honors whole communities (geographically defined jurisdictions) in line with RWJF’s Culture of Health vision. RWJF seeks applicants to propose approaches to the selection, strategic communications, celebration, and learning activities in ways that advance the Prize’s reach, influence, visibility, and the Foundation’s commitment to health equity.
This request seeks an entity to lead the next two-year phase of the leadership and management of the RWJF Culture of Health Prize, which will include 2022–2023 cohorts of winners and initial planning for the 2024 cohort. This call for proposals provides background on the RWJF Culture of Health Prize and outlines responsibilities for an organization selected to take on the next phase of leadership and management.
A Culture of Health recognizes that where people live—such as access to affordable homes, quality schools, good jobs, and reliable transportation—affects how long and how well they live. As the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) works to build a Culture of Health with partners across the country, the RWJF Culture of Health Prize (the Prize) is one way that RWJF lifts up examples of communities working at the forefront of advancing health, opportunity, and equity. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of community members who are working together to transform neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that the opportunity for better health flourishes for all. The Foundation recognizes the importance of lifting up the different ways a Culture of Health is happening in diverse places—in cities, counties, tribes, regions and rural towns—facing a myriad of physical, economic, and social challenges. Though each place’s journey looks different, they all show what a Culture of Health can look like.
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.
