New Jersey Health Initiatives Announces Call for Proposals to Promote Upstream Action in Building Healthier Communities

New Jersey Health Initiatives (NJHI) – the statewide grantmaking program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) – is now accepting proposals for its 2018 Upstream Action Acceleration funding initiative.

The Upstream Action Acceleration initiative will support existing cross-sector coalitions working “upstream" with community stakeholders to implement environmental-, policy- and systems-change strategies that impact health prior to the onset of disease and illness, and accelerate their work in established priority areas to improve community health. NJHI will provide up to 16 grants of up to $100,000 over two years to coalitions whose focus might include, but is not limited to:

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
  • New Sector Engagement (e.g., business, library, law enforcement)
  • Effective Use of Data Tools and Resources to Guide Actions
  • Civic Engagement
  • Environment/Open Space
  • Medical-Legal Partnerships and
  • Transportation



The Upstream Action Acceleration initiative is an opportunity for cross-sector community coalitions to build on past or current strategies toward health improvement and achieve statewide impact across the selected focus areas. To foster both local and statewide outcomes, awardees will be part of a learning network and participate in opportunities for peer sharing through in-person and virtual convenings. These collaborative learning activities will help coalitions implement their local projects, and inform the field about practice-tested strategies to improve community health.

“Building a Culture of Health requires extraordinary collaboration among communities, policymakers, businesses and others to think about improving health differently," said Bob Atkins, PhD, RN, FAAN, director of NJHI. “In New Jersey, our communities already have a wealth of valuable resources that, when brought to the same table, can produce powerful solutions to address factors that influence health, such as employment, housing, education and the built environment. Through this initiative, NJHI will expand its network of coalitions across the state for cross-sector learning, and equip New Jerseyans with the right tools to build a Culture of Health in their communities."

Brief proposal submissions from interested applicants are due by March 1, 2018.

An applicant webinar was held on Friday, February 2, 2018 to give attendees a fuller understanding of what is expected of applicants at the brief proposal stage and what NJHI hopes to accomplish with this initiative. A recording of this webinar can be accessed at https://t.co/47tKS3VfkP.
