Robert Wood Johnson Foundation 2020 Culture of Health Prize


Robert Wood Johnson Foundation 2020 Culture of Health Prize:

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Culture of Health Prize elevates the compelling stories of community members throughout the country who are working together in new ways so that everyone can live their healthiest life possible, regardless of who they are or how much money they make. A Culture of Health recognizes that where we live—such as our access to affordable homes, quality schools, and reliable transportation—affects how long and how well we live. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of community members who are working together to transform neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that the opportunity for better health flourishes for all.

The RWJF Culture of Health Prize, a collaboration between RWJF and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, is the Foundation’s way of honoring communities—urban, rural, tribal, large or small—that are beacons of hope and progress for healthier people, families, and places.

Up to ten communities will be selected as prize winners and will receive the following:

  • A $25,000 cash prize;
  • Customized communications materials about their community including videos, photos, and stories captured by journalists and other communications professionals;
  • Strategic communications guidance leading up to, during, and in follow-up to the Prize winner announcement to make the most of their Prize recognition;
  • National and local promotion of their stories and successes to inspire others’ efforts, including outreach to media, policymakers and networks of organizations; and
  • Will interact with and learn from other national and local leaders working to build a Culture of Health, including past Prize winners through the Prize Alumni Network.


APPLICATION DEADLINE: Monday, November 4, 2019
