Seeking Research on How Policies, Laws, and Regulations Can Help Build a Culture of Health

With the focus to generate actionable evidence to guide legislators and other policymakers, public agencies, educators, advocates, community groups, and individuals, the RWJF Policies for Action Program has launched its first Call for Proposals (CFP).

Research should inform the significant gaps in our knowledge regarding how policies can serve as levers to improve population health, well-being, and equity. Approximately $1.5 million will be awarded through this CFP.

An informational webinar will take place on Tuesday, February 16 from 1-2p.m. ET, where Director of P4A, Scott Burris, JD, will answer any questions you may have.




Public Health Law Research Call for Proposals Coming in June

Public Health Law Research (PHLR) program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will be opening its fifth call for proposals (CFP) in early June. Short-term studies are no more than 18 months long, and will be funded up to $150,000 each. Applicants are expected to submit a detailed proposal of no more than 23 pages.

As with past CFPs, PHLR will look favorably on multidisciplinary teams that seek to investigate laws broadly impacting public health.

More information about the call is available on PHLR’s website, and more detailed instructions outlining the proposal elements, selection criteria and eligibility criteria will be released in June.
