Policies for Action (P4A) Effects of State Preemption Policies on Racial Justice and Health Equity 

The goal of this P4A CFP is to build the evidence base investigating how preemption policies at the state level may affect racial justice and health equity. The research funded under this CFP should: 1) focus on how state-level preemption impacts local authority; 2) be intentional about applying a racial equity lens to the policy research processes and outcomes; and 3) include community groups and/or members, especially those from historically marginalized communities, as leaders or partners in all stages of the research.
