Initial applications must be submitted prior to the final deadline.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation 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 people live—such as access to affordable homes, quality schools, and reliable transportation—affects how long and how well they live.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Culture of Health Prize (the Prize) recognizes communities working together to transform neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that the opportunity for better health flourishes for all.
To be competitive, it is imperative that Prize applicants showcase the breadth of work and collaboration happening across the entire community.
