This request seeks an entity to lead the next two-year phase of the leadership and management of the RWJF Culture of Health Prize, which will include 2022–2023 cohorts of winners and initial planning for the 2024 cohort. This call for proposals provides background on the RWJF Culture of Health Prize and outlines responsibilities for an organization selected to take on the next phase of leadership and management.
A Culture of Health recognizes that where we live—such as our access to affordable homes, quality schools, good jobs, and reliable transportation—affects how long and how well we live. As the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) works to build a Culture of Health with partners across the country, the RWJF Culture of Health Prize (the Prize) is one way that RWJF lifts up examples of communities working at the forefront of advancing health, opportunity, and equity. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of community members who are working together to transform neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that the opportunity for better health flourishes for all. We recognize the importance of lifting up the different ways a Culture of Health is happening in diverse places—in cities, counties, tribes, regions and rural towns—facing a myriad of physical, economic, and social challenges. Though each place’s journey looks different, they all show us what a Culture of Health can look like. See the full call for proposals for additional information.
