Over the past 20 years, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has been committed to the work of preventing childhood obesity and improving healthy food access for all children and families. There is a new funding opportunity for organizations working toward the same goal. RWJF hasĀ an open call for proposals that aim to address structural racism, advance health equity, and improve health and nutrition outcomes in the communities most impacted by these systemic issues. Learn more about how to submit. If the National Urban Research & Extension Center can support an aspect of your project, please reach out to Brad Gaolach.
