Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and for-profits for research addressing sustainable health equity policies during and following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Applicants are required to submit a preliminary proposal prior to a full grant application. Priority will be given to studies that address the root causes of health inequity.
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support action-oriented research that advances health equity, builds the knowledge base, and informs policymaking. 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. Through this call for proposals, RWJF intends to support research that advances policy and programmatic solutions to help families gain equitable access to needed supports during and after the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and ensure that a Culture of Health with health equity for all families remains front and center in the national dialogue.
Research funded under this opportunity might:
Although RWJF recognizes the importance of identifying the magnitude of gaps in access to supports and disparate outcomes for families, for this call for proposals, the Foundation is prioritizing research that illuminates the structural reasons for or drivers of disparities and that has direct implications for policy or programmatic changes that will promote equity.
In the context of the pandemic, RWJF is taking steps to focus attention on and provide resources to families and communities facing the greatest strain. For this call for proposals, RWJF is particularly interested in research exploring issues that cut across policy domains. RWJF seeks to support studies that reveal the ways that ECE access, income supports, and nutrition supports interact and potentially reinforce one another to promote families’ well-being.
In addition, RWJF intends to fund studies that highlight cross-cutting policy and programmatic responses to the COVID-19 pandemic that have the potential to uphold or increase families’ equitable access to ECE, income supports, and nutrition supports. The Foundation is primarily interested in policy responses that may persist beyond the immediate crisis. RWJF hopes this research will draw attention to the ways that innovations at the federal, state, and local levels can sustain or expand families’ access to supports, promote the healthy development of young children, and prevent deepening of inequities, especially in the context of a public health and economic crisis and in its aftermath.
