Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Territories public agencies and nonprofit organizations to address social justice and inequity in the health field. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to a full application. The program is intended to gather evidence about racial inequities in health and well-being at the national, state, and local levels.

Achieving racial equity and justice in the United States requires a sustained, multipronged intersectional policy approach that addresses both the immediate social conditions leading to poor health outcomes, but also the long-standing structures fostering such conditions. The goal of the Policies for Action call for proposals is to build the evidence base about how national, state, and local policies can improve racial equity in health and well-being in the United States.

The goal of this Policies for Action (P4A) call for proposals (CFP) is to build the evidence base about how national, state, and local policies can decrease racial inequities in health and well-being in the United States.

The research funded under this CFP must: (1) focus on studying the potential impact of a specific federal, state, or local policy; (2) be intentional about maintaining a focus on racial equity and racial justice in its processes and outcomes; (3) use principles of equitable evaluation; (4) incorporate meaningful and authentic community engagement into the work; and (5) advance community-driven solutions that come from the groups of people most directly impacted by structural racism. For this CFP, it is also encouraged, but do not require, that the proposed research examines the impact of policy changes on health and well-being outcomes.

Use of Grant Funds

  • Grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, other direct project expenses, including a limited amount of equipment essential to the project, and indirect costs to support the applicant organization’s general operations. In keeping with RWJF policy, funds may not be used to support clinical trials of unapproved drugs or devices, to construct or renovate facilities, for lobbying, for political activities, or as a substitute for funds currently being used to support similar activities.
