Policies for Action: Research on Housing Policies That Promote Equity
The Policies for Action research program is releasing Policies for Action: Research on Housing Policies That Promote Equity call for proposals (CFP) to investigate the effectiveness of state, county, and city public policies aimed at increasing housing affordability and stability; addressing racial segregation and isolation from opportunity; and increasing access to opportunity-rich neighborhoods and place-based resources. We are particularly interested in understanding how such policies affect racial equity in housing and neighborhood conditions—especially in small- and medium-sized cities having populations between 50,000 and 500,000.
From its inception, RWJF’s work has been driven by a continuous cycle of research, evaluation, and learning. Our commitment to advancing a bold research agenda helps bring evidence to bear on some of the most complex health and policy issues facing the United States today.
Where you live matters a great deal to your health and well-being, and that of your family. Not everyone has the same chance to live in a safe neighborhood with great schools, healthy food options, public libraries, community centers, parks and trails, transportation hubs, and access to employment centers. RWJF recognizes the role that housing policies, laws, and regulations can play in promoting neighborhood conditions that positively shape health and well-being.
We will award grants totaling approximately $2 million through this CFP. Each grant awarded will be up to $250,000 for up to 24 months. Eligible applicant organizations include academic institutions; public entities; private nonprofit organizations, state and local government agencies; and for-profit organizations based in the United States or its territories. We strongly encourage applications that include researchers who are from groups that are underrepresented in policy research and/or who are affiliated with institutions that serve underrepresented groups.
RWJF supports research that generates actionable evidence and information about how, and how well, housing policies work. We would like research findings to guide legislators; public agencies; public policy advocates; grassroots organizers; housing, community development, and financing practitioners; and other stakeholders developing and implementing housing policies to create equitable communities.
