Policies for Action Call for Proposals

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program, Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build

a Culture of Health (P4A), has launched its first call for proposals to help build an evidence base for

policies that can lead to a Culture of Health. P4A seeks to engage long-standing health and healthcare

researchers, as well as experts from fields that include housing, education, transportation, and the built

environment, who have not previously worked in the public health field. The research funded under this

call for proposals should inform the significant gaps in our knowledge about policies that can improve

population health and well-being and increase health equity. Deadline: March 15, 2016.
