Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Local Funding Partnerships

Deadline: June 30, 2010
Local Funding Partnerships (LFP), a collaborative program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and local grantmakers, supports innovative, community-based projects throughout the United States. Through LFP, local grantmakers propose a funding partnership with RWJF to provide seed money for a promising, original project that can improve the health of vulnerable people in their communities.

Significant program expansions- into new regions or to new populations- may also be considered; however, funds may not be used to maintain existing projects. LFP provides grants of $200,000 to $500,000 per project, which must be matched dollar for dollar by local grantmakers such as community foundations, family foundations, corporate funders, etc.
Up to 12 grants will be provided in this funding cycle. Brief proposals are due June 30, 2010.
