Brief: The mission of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is to improve the health and health care of all Americans. Their goal is to help our society transform itself for the better.      

Thrust Areas: Improving health policy and practice.      

Funding Opportunity: Changes in Health Care Financing and Organization (HCFO)      

Who Can Apply: Researchers, as well as practitioners and public and private policy-makers working with researchers, are eligible to submit proposals through their organizations. Projects may be initiated from within many disciplines, including health services research, economics, sociology, political science, public policy, public health, public administration, law and business administration. RWJF encourages proposals from organizations on behalf of researchers who are just beginning their careers, who can serve either individually as principal investigators or as part of a project team comprising researchers or other collaborators with more experience. The NPO will provide or arrange for technical assistance to aid researchers whose proposals are found to be of merit but who lack the resources to develop an appropriate research team. To be considered favorably under this solicitation, proposals must examine major issues in health care financing and the organization of care and their effects on cost, and access to, or quality of care. Only organizations and government entities are eligible to receive funding under this program. Preference will be given to applicants that are public agencies or are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations as defined under Section 509(a).
