Roadmaps to Health Community Grants Call for Proposals

Tuesday, April 3, 2012
The 2012 Roadmaps to Health Community Grants, which will support two-year state and local efforts among policymakers, business, education, health care, public health and community organizations, will be managed by Community Catalyst and are part of the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI). Up to 20 coalitions will be awarded grants to create policy or system change to address the social and economic factors that impact the health of people in their community.
The grantees will build on the County Health Rankings model, which highlights the critical role that factors such as education, jobs, income, community safety and having positive family and community networks in influencing how healthy people are and how long they live. The Roadmaps to Health grantees will focus on addressing those factors to create healthier places to live, learn, work and play.
Deadline: May 2, 2012, 3:00 p.m. EDT
Community Catalyst will also be holding a webinar to help potential applicants learn more about the Roadmaps to Health Community Grants on April 10 (register here).
