Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Helping Families. Supporting Communities. Empowering Individuals.


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation provides grants for projects in the United States and U.S. territories that advance our mission to improve the health and health care of all Americans. For projects to be eligible for funding, they must address one of our seven program areas. Visit a program area for more information on its strategic objectives and funding guidelines. RWJF awards most grants through calls for proposals (CFPs). All seven program areas issue CFPs from time to time. The Pioneer Portfolio accepts unsolicited proposals for projects that suggest new and creative approaches to solving health and health care problems. Pioneer welcomes proposals for unsolicited grants at any time and issues awards throughout the year.

We aim to fund innovative projects that can have measurable impact and can create meaningful, transformative change, such as:

service demonstrations

gathering and monitoring of health-related statistics

public education

training and fellowship programs

policy analysis

health services research

technical assistance

communications activities



We generally support public agencies, universities, and public charities that are tax-exempt under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
