May 2009Vol. 10, No. 4Local Funding Partnerships Program
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is accepting applications for local funders to nominate original projects that can improve the health of vulnerable people in their community. Projects should be nominated by local grantmakers who will work with RWJF to support the projects. Projects may address health in a broad sense—including mental health, violence, and substance abuse. Targeted populations may include such at-risk groups as children, youth, young adults, minorities, immigrants, and more. Up to 14 matching grants of between $200,000 and $500,000 each will be awarded.
Option conference calls for applicants will be held May 13 and 20, and initial applications are due July 7, 2009. For more information, visit the RWJF website:
