Grants to USA and territories nonprofit grassroots organizations to collaborate with researchers to improve health equity, particularly in minority populations. Funding is intended to examine the infrastructure, processes, and relationships that lead to successful community base-building.
This CFP will support research projects to build an understanding of the range of methods applied in innovative and effective community base-building that result in changes to community-level social, economic, and physical conditions that are known to influence health and equity. RWJF is seeking to fund research projects designed to retrospectively examine various methods resulting in innovative and effective community base-building. Base-building is a set of strategies and activities used by residents, workers, consumers, and other constituencies to build collective strength and power to address a variety of inequitable conditions in communities. Base-building has been utilized for generations by grassroots-led organizations to build power specifically in historically excluded or underrepresented populations.
RWJF is seeking research proposals whose project teams will participate alongside other field and research experts in the RWJF Lead Local program, which is exploring the question: How does community power catalyze, create, and sustain conditions for healthy communities? RWJF is aware that community base-building methods vary across geographic areas and across racial, ethnic, and other demographic groups. RWJF seeks to understand community-identified innovations that lead to meaningful and effective community base-building. The proposed research projects are not intended to build understanding of methodologies applied to other critical approaches to achieve systems change, including policy advocacy, coalition-building, communications, or organizational development.
Grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, and other direct project expenses, including a limited amount of equipment essential to the project.
