The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is now accepting applications for its Local Funding Partnerships program; up to $6 million will be awarded in the 2010 grant cycle.
Through this program, RWJF partners with local foundations to fund local projects that have the potential to significantly improve the health of vulnerable populations. New, innovative, collaborative and community-based programs nominated by local grantmakers will be eligible for funding; grants may also go toward programs making significant expansions into new regions or populations.
The program carries a local, dollar-for-dollar matching requirement. RWJF expects to award up to 14 matching grants of $200,000 to $500,000 each.
Application deadline is July 7. For full details, see the RWJF website.
