Equity-Focused Policy Research Funding Opportunity

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the private funding partner for Well-Connected Communities, is dedicated to building a Culture of Health—one where everyone in America has a fair opportunity for health and well-being. The Equity-Focused Policy Research Funding Opportunity is for researchers, state and local government agencies, and public and private sector professionals, from a variety of fields who are interested in better understanding the use of income supports like the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) programs. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support action-oriented research that advances health equity, builds the knowledge base, and informs policymaking on income supports for low-income families. Income supports may reduce poverty in households with young children; provide critical resources to help families support children’s development; diminish families’ stress levels; and thereby advance health equity.
