Evidence for Action (E4A); RWJF: Indigenous-Led Solutions to Advance Health Equity and Wellbeing Grants – Proposals Due 03/01/24

Opportunity Title:

Indigenous-Led Solutions to Advance Health Equity and Wellbeing


Funder/Agency:

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)

Evidence for Action (E4A)


Description:

The purpose of this call for proposals (CFP) is to support Indigenous-led systematic inquiry to enhance the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples and generate approaches to improve health equity. This will be achieved by funding community-prioritized investigation, elevating and integrating Indigenous cultures and knowledge-building practices. To support a diverse range of projects tailored to different phases of development and scope, awards will be made through two tracks, as described later in this solicitation. 


There are two funding tracks under this CFP:

  • Track 1: Initiating and Developing Research Capacity and Infrastructure

  • Track 2: Supporting Later-Stage, Sustained Research Efforts  


Examples of projects that may be a good fit for Track 1 include, but are not limited to:

  • Use of TDPR, or Indigenous research methods and approaches to identify solutions and strategies for health that are prioritized by Indigenous Peoples.

  • Carrying out Indigenous-grounded needs assessments to identify research priorities that matter to Indigenous communities.

  • Developing and validating culturally appropriate tests and measures to assess the health of Indigenous Peoples.

  • Developing new data collection, access, and management approaches within Indigenous communities

Examples of projects that may be a good fit for Track 2 include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing restorative justice or reconciliation projects that aim to address historical injustices and promote healing.

  • Measuring the impact of strategies that target structural or systemic inequities for Indigenous populations (e.g., cultural revitalization initiatives).

  • Assessing whether specific policies or programs (e.g., healthcare infrastructure or systems investments, economic and commerce developments, employment opportunities, housing initiatives, climate change adaptations or mitigation) impact Indigenous Peoples’ health and wellbeing.

  • Determining whether certain practices (e.g., traditional healing, Indigenous cultural practices, etc.) improve Indigenous Peoples’ health and wellbeing.



Eligibility:

  • Awards will be made to organizations, not to individuals.   

  • Preference will be given to applicant organizations that are Tribal entities (including those that are state recognized, federally recognized, or have no formal recognition status) or Indigenous-Serving Organizations, including Urban Indian Organizations. Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories.


  • For Track 1, this must be a Tribal entity or Indigenous-Serving Organization.

  • For Track 2, this is not required to be a Tribal entity or Indigenous-Serving Organization.
