Policies 4 Action Call for Health Equity Proposals

P4A funding announcement

CCHE would like to share a call for proposals from Policies for Action (P4A), a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program ~

To advance equitable and inclusive policies, we need greater diversity in policy and law research. In 2019, Policies for Action is issuing a special call for proposals to advance health equity by actively seeking new and diverse perspectives from the policy research field. This opportunity will support early-career researchers from underrepresented and historically disadvantaged backgrounds to help us understand and find solutions that promote health equity and foster action on policies and laws that ensure all people in America can attain and preserve good health and well-being.

Researchers will receive up to $250,000 over two years to:

  • Investigate existing policies or policy changes that can influence population health, well-being, and equity;
  • Engage in career development activities and mentorship;
  • Produce and translate timely research results; and
  • Collaborate with other researchers to create a healthier, more equitable future for all people in America.

P4A will provide support and training for up to six investigators. Two of these six will be researchers located in and conducting research within the state of New Jersey. Applicants must have completed a doctoral degree within the past 10 years and will identify two institutional mentors to advise on career development and research skills as part of their application.

Informational Webinar

We invite interested researchers to attend a free informational webinar on Wednesday, September 4, 1:30–2:30 p.m. (CDT). Register here.

Letters of intent are due by October 2, 2019 at 2:00pm CDT

More details & directions are included in the full call for proposals.
