Roadmaps to Health Community Grants

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Roadmaps to Health Community Grants program will support communities working to implement policy or system changes to address one of the social or economic factors that, as defined by the County Health Rankings, most strongly influence health outcomes in their community. These include education, employment and income, family and social support, and community safety.

Grantees will be organizations that participate in established coalitions or networks spanning multiple sectors and perspectives and may include representatives from business, education, public health, healthcare, community organizations, community members, policy advocates, foundations, and policymakers. Applicants must engage community members in the planning and implementation of projects, and must collaborate with organizations having expertise in improving the health of the public. Applicants also must secure 100 percent matching support, including a cash match of at least 50 percent, with the balance as in-kind support.

Amount: $200,000

Date due: May 2, 2012
