Application: Aug 9, 2019
Gina Hijjawi, PhD.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation provides grants for action-oriented research that advances health equity, builds knowledge base, and informs policy making on income supports for low-income families. Income supports may reduce poverty in households with young children; provide critical resources to help families support children’s development; diminish families’ stress levels; and thereby advance health equity.
The Foundation is particularly interested in research on two types of income supports:
- Tax credits
- Cash transfer policies
Research should affect families of color, families living in rural areas, and other groups of families who experience gaps in access to supports and face disparities in outcomes related to health and well-being.
Eligible applicants include:

- Public entities
- Nonprofit organizations
- State, territorial, and local government agencies
- For-profit organizations
