Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories organizations, including advocacy groups, medical workforce organizations, and policy think tanks, for research projects to address racism and financialization in the healthcare system. Applicants must submit a concept paper prior to applying.

This call for proposals will support actionable research that augments data on the intersection of financialization and structural racism to help counter the harms of financialization in the healthcare system. The Foundation seeks proposals for research projects that bolster advocacy campaigns and organizing efforts; build on opportunities afforded by the political and social landscape; and produce timely and useful information for use by advocates, community organizers, policymakers, and other decisionmakers.

The Foundation is especially interested in projects that explore the mutually reinforcing issues of financialization and structural racism in the U.S. healthcare system; that use racial justice as an entry point and/or lens; and community-engaged work that fosters new partnerships and allies among researchers and advocates.

Proposed projects should fall into one of the following three priority topic areas, with the understanding that topic areas are not mutually exclusive and will likely overlap. The research areas are (1) Policy and Systems, (2) Narratives and Storytelling, and (3) Financialization and Structural Racism. A variety of research designs and analyses can be used to address key research questions, including nontraditional approaches. The Foundation encourages a flexible definition of “research” for purposes of these grants, which may fund the collection and/or dissemination of information that supports action.

For details about the topic areas, see:


Additional Eligibility Criteria
