RWJ: Health Impact Project

Program Summary

The Health Impact Project is issuing its fourth call for proposals to support two types of initiatives: health impact assessment, or HIA, demonstration projects that inform a specific decision; and HIA program grants that enable organizations with experience with HIAs to develop sustainable HIA programs that integrate the assessments and related approaches in policymaking at the local, state, or tribal levels.

This call for proposals supports two types of initiatives: 1) health impact assessment demonstration projects that inform a specifi c decision, with a focus on tribes, states, and territories that have had limited experience with HIAs to date; and 2) HIA program grants that enable organizations with previous HIA experience to develop sustainable HIA programs that integrate HIAs and related approaches in policymaking at the local, state, or tribal level. 

Support for additional projects may become available because the Health Impact Project also collaborates with funders to support HIAs on specific topics or in a defined state or region. 

An applicant organization may submit up to two brief proposals total under this solicitation.  For example, an applicant may submit two Demonstration Project brief proposals, two Program Grant brief proposals, or one brief proposal for each grant type.  However, the Health Impact Project will fund no more than one full proposal per organization.
