Call for Proposals: Global Ideas for U.S. Solutions – Cities Taking Action to Address Health, Equity, and Climate Change

Cities around the world are taking meaningful action to advance health equity by designing solutions that benefit the health of people and our planet. Through a $3 million funding opportunity, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) seeks to bring the most impactful ideas from across the globe to U.S. cities to address the intertwined issues of health, equity, and climate change.

RWJF is seeking proposals that foster learning and stimulate action in U.S. cities around smart, effective approaches from abroad that mitigate the unequal health risks posed by climate change. Specifically, they’re seeking proposals that explore changes in city planning, policies, and programs that address: buildings and energy; land use and urban planning; transportation; waste; food systems and food security; and air quality.

RWJF is hosting an informational webinar on April 9 (11:00am-12:00pm ET). Proposals are due April 30, 2020. View the proposal announcement to learn more about eligibility, submission guidelines, and selection criteria.
