The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2019 Culture of Health Prize. This prize recognizes communities that have come together around a commitment to health, opportunity, and equity through collaboration and inclusion, especially with historically marginalized populations and those facing the greatest barriers to good health. The Prize honors those communities that are working to give everyone the opportunity to live well, including residents that are often left behind.

A Culture of Health recognizes that where people live—their access to affordable and stable homes, quality schools, reliable transportation—make a difference in their opportunities to thrive, and ultimately all of this profoundly affects health and well-being. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of community members who are working together to transform neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that better health flourishes everywhere, for everyone. There are characteristics shared by communities that catalyze and sustain positive change. Because the Prize recognizes whole communities, applicants must think beyond their own individual organizations and initiatives to what has been accomplished across the community.

Applications will be judged based on the following the criteria:

  • Defining health in the broadest possible terms.
  • Committing to sustainable systems changes and policy-oriented long-term solutions.
  • Creating conditions that give everyone a fair and just opportunity to reach their best possible health.
  • Harnessing the collective power of leaders, partners, and community members.
  • Securing and making the most of available resources.
  • Measuring and sharing progress and results.

Grant Amount: Winning communities receive a $25,000 cash prize, along with the following:

  • Customized communications materials about their community including videos, photos, and stories captured by journalists and other communications professionals;
  • Strategic communications counsel leading up to, during, and in follow-up to the Prize winner announcement;
  • National and local promotion of their stories and successes to inspire others’ efforts, including outreach to media, policy stakeholders, and organizational networks; and
  • Engagement in opportunities to build knowledge with other national and community leaders working to build a Culture of Health, including past Prize winners through the Prize Alumni Network.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include:

  • Cities, Counties, towns, villages, boroughs, or other municipality with a publicly-elected governing body
  • Federally-recognized tribe or a state-designated Indian reservation
  • Native Hawaiian organization serving and representing the interests of Native Hawaiians in Hawaii
  • Region defined as contiguous municipalities, counties, and/or reservations 

Neighborhoods and states are not eligible to apply.

Due Date: November 1, 2018

The Home Depot Foundation invites applications from nonprofit organizations that use volunteers in projects that repair, modify, weatherize, or otherwise improve low-income and/or transitional housing or community facilities. Through the Community Impact Grants Program, Home Depot provides grants in the form of The Home Depot gift cards for the purchase of tools, materials, or services and are required to be complete within six months of approval date.

The following are taken into consideration by the foundation:

•Population served: The Home Depot Foundation focuses on serving veterans within local communities. Does the project benefit an individual, veteran family, or community of veterans? If not, is the organization providing support for diverse and underserved communities?

•Volunteer driven: The foundation feels strongly about empowering people to serve and give back to their community. How is the organization engaging the local community to better serve veterans in the community? Is the project volunteer friendly whereby the organization can engage people of all skill levels?

•Impact: The foundation engages organizations that are making a strong and lasting impact on their community. Will this project require continued support in the future? Is the organization prepared to continue with ongoing support as needed? How will the organization measure the impact and outcomes of this project?

•Safety: Is the organization focused on ensuring ADA compliance and safety regulations are maintained? Whether a project involves community buildings, living facilities or individual homes this is the number one priority when it comes to rehabilitation or construction projects. Does the organization have policies in place to ensure volunteers are safe?

Grant Amount: Grant amounts of up to $5,000 are available.

Eligibility: Only IRS-registered 501(c)(3)-designated nonprofit organizations and tax-exempt public service agencies (e.g., police/fire departments) in the United States are eligible to apply. In addition, grants must support work completed by community volunteers in the U.S., and projects must be completed within six months following notification that the grant has been awarded.

Due Date: December 12, 2018
