Areas of Interest:
Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health (P4A), a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was created to help build an evidence base for policies that can lead to a Culture of Health.

P4A seeks to engage long-standing health and healthcare researchers, as well as experts in fields like housing, education, transportation, and the built environment, to name a few, who have not worked in health before.

The goal is to develop research that generates actionable evidence—the data and information that can guide legislators and other policymakers, public agencies, educators, advocates, community groups, and individuals.

The research funded under this call for proposals (CFP) should inform the significant gaps in our knowledge regarding what policies can serve as levers to improve population health and well-being, and achieve greater levels of health equity. Funded research may examine established laws, regulations, and policies as well as potential new policies and approaches.

Each grant will award up to $250,000 for a maximum funding period of 24 months. The following are especially encouraged to apply:

  • interdisciplinary or cross-sector research teams;
  • investigators from a variety of areas and disciplines, including but not limited to architecture, business, community planning, data scientists, economics, epidemiology, health policy, medicine, public health, social work, sociology; urban planning, and system engineers; and,
  • first-time applicants to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Application Procedures:
Application guidelines are available on the website listed above. Applications must be submitted through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation online system.
