New Funding Opportunity from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Building Evidence on Nutrition Supports for Low-Income Families with Young Children

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is offering a new funding opportunity whose purpose is to support action-oriented research that advances health equity, builds the knowledge base and informs policymaking to increase access to nutrition supports and reduce nutrition disparities. Find out how to apply.


RWJF aims to fund a body of research that will help guide decision-making about changes related to federal nutrition policies/programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP); the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), to better support access to these programs for low-income families with young children and reduce disparities in their access to healthy foods and beverages.

RWJF will fund approximately 10 projects totaling $1.5 million dollars. The deadline for proposals is September 24, 2019 at 3 p.m. ET.
