Health Impact Project: Integrating Health into Public Policy Decision-Making

Background Information/Seeking: The Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, announces a call for proposals (CFP) to fund health impact assessments (HIAs) and the establishment of sustainable, self-supporting HIA programs to more routinely integrate health into public policy decision-making. The CFP will support government and tribal agencies and educational and nonprofit organizations under the two types of grants:

  • Demonstration project grants will fund single HIAs to inform a specific proposed policy, program, plan, or project. The Health Impact Project will award up to six grants for as much as $100,000 each and will provide training and technical assistance to awardees throughout the length of each grant. 
  • HIA program grants will support organizations with prior HIA experience to conduct one or more new HIAs and to implement plans that establish the partnerships, systems, and funding mechanisms needed to maintain stable HIA programs beyond the conclusion of the grant periods. The Health Impact Project will fund up to five program grants for up to $250,000 each.
