The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize elevates the compelling stories of community members throughout the country who are working together in new ways so that everyone can live their healthiest life possible, regardless of who they are or how much money they make. A Culture of Health recognizes that where we live—such as our access to affordable homes, quality schools, and reliable transportation—affects how long and how well we live. 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.
There are characteristics shared by communities that catalyze and sustain positive change. Because the Prize recognizes whole communities, applicants must think beyond their own individual organizations and initiatives to what has been accomplished across the community. Applications will be judged based on the criteria below.
Applications are due November 4, 2019.
