Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - Community Health Leaders Program
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Community Health Leaders (CHL) program each year honors 10 outstanding individuals who overcome daunting odds to improve health and health care, especially to underserved populations in communities across the United States. The program aims to elevate the work of these individuals through enhanced recognition, technical assistance and new leadership opportunities.
RWJF will make ten awards in the amount on $125,000 each. To be considered for a CHL award, a nominee must: be accomplished in the field of community health at the midcareer level; have created or substantially enhanced a health or health-care initiative that improves access to and quality of care or services in his or her community; worked against conventional wisdom to establish a new initiative; and be affiliated with a public or nonprofit organization that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Please Note: The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) does not administer this funding opportunity.
