Teams from all mid-sized cities (cities with populations between 50,000 and 400,000) across the United States or its territories’, are invited to apply for a new grant program through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Up to 50 cities will be selected and receive a grant award of up to $60,000 toward participation in the initiative. To apply, teams from each participant city must include five cross-sector leaders representing, at a minimum, the public sector, community development/finance, and an academic or health-related anchor institution. The remaining team members should be drawn from sectors appropriate to the challenge the team seeks to address.
Application deadline: January 29, 2016
