Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites ‘Pioneering Ideas’ Proposals

The aim of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation ‘s Pioneering Ideas Brief Proposal funding opportunity is to put health first as it looks into the future and works to develop clarity as to the trends, opportunities, and ideas that can enable everyone in the America to live the healthiest life possible.

To that end, the program is accepting applications for projects that seek to explore how cutting-edge ideas and emerging trends could help or hinder progress toward a Culture of Health — defined by RWJF as placing well-being at the center of every aspect of individuals' lives and ensuring that everyone has access to the care they need as well as a fair and just opportunity to make healthier choices.

The program accepts various types of projects, including research, pilots or demonstration projects; idea sourcing; network or coalition building; and more.

Grants awarded through this funding opportunity generally will range between $150,000 and $350,000 over one to three years.

After review of a brief proposal, RWJF may invite applicants to submit a full proposal for consideration.

See the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, an FAQ, and a list of previously supported projects.
