Health Impact Assessment Call for Proposals, Health Impact Project (deadlines: Program grant brief proposals September 14, 2012; Demonstration Project Grant Proposals September 28, 2012)
Posted, as is, from CDC's Healthy Community Design News Listserv: The Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, announced a call for proposals for grants to conduct health impact assessments (HIAs). HIAs identify and address the health impacts of decisions in other sectors.
The call for proposals will support two kinds of awards: demonstration project grants of up to $75,000, which will each fund a single HIA to inform a specific upcoming decision on a proposed policy, program, plan, or project; and HIA program grants of up to $250,000, which will allow organizations with prior experience to conduct at least two new HIAs and to develop stable HIA programs that endure beyond the conclusion of the grant period.
Three web conferences are scheduled in August for information for applicants. The first is scheduled for August 1st. The web conferences will cover information applicants will need, and they will also include a chance to ask questions about the application process.
