The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation currently partners with diversity focused funders and other local grantmakers to fund projects to reduce violence in specific communities such as those defined by race, ethnicity, tribe, gender, sexual identity or rural/frontier location.
Projects must be new, community-based and culturally appropriate, reflecting how language skills, significant cultural differences, education, income and discrimination affect health outcomes. Community members should be engaged in planning and leadership.
Application deadline is January 5, 2010
