Equity-Focused Policy Research Funding Opportunity

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Submission deadline: 
May 21, 2019

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support action-oriented research that advances health equity, builds the knowledge base, and informs policymaking on income supports for low-income families. Income supports may reduce poverty in households with young children; provide critical resources to help families support children’s development; diminish families’ stress levels; and thereby advance health equity. (RWJF plans to support research on the two other policy areas addressed in the research agenda—access to ECE and nutrition supports—through separate calls for proposals.) Evidence generated through funded projects should inform practice and policy, and guide practitioners and policymakers (federal, state, and local) in setting priorities and allocating resources.
