Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health
2013 Call for Proposals
Deadline: July 24, 2013, 3:00 p.m. ET
Release Date: June 5, 2013
Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health (PHLR) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation® (RWJF). The program seeks to build the evidence for and strengthen the use of regulatory, legal and policy solutions to improve public health. PHLR is equally interested in identifying and ameliorating laws and legal practices that unintentionally harm health. PHLR’s purpose is to answer important questions, such as: How does law influence health and health behavior? Which laws have the greatest impact? Can current laws be made more effective through better enforcement, or do they require amendment?
Up to 18-month awards of up to $150,000 each for short-term studies.
Up to $1 million will be available under this call for proposals (CFP).
