The Health Impact Project: Advancing Smarter Policies for Healthier Communities, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, encourages the use of health impact assessments (HIA) to help decision-makers identify the potential health effects of proposed policies, projects, and programs, and make recommendations that enhance their health benefits and minimize their adverse effects and any associated costs. This call for proposals supports two types of initiatives: 1) HIA demonstration projects that inform a specific decision and help to build the case for the value of HIA; and 2) HIA program grants to enable organizations with previous HIA experience to conduct HIAs and develop sustainable, self-supporting HIA programs at the local, state, or tribal level.
Five demonstration project grants of up to $75,000 and three program grants of up to $250,000 will be awarded to select applicants. State and local agencies, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions are eligible to apply.Deadline:
Varying – September 14, 2012 (Program Grants), September 28, 2012 (Demonstration Project Grants)
