Open Call for Rapid-Response Health Impacts Research

Human Impact Partners has funding from the Health Impact Project (a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts) to partner with grassroots community organizing groups on rapid-response health impacts research in support of an active issue campaign. Examples of our health impacts research are available in our Research page.

Campaign Criteria for Health Impacts Research Partnerships
  • Campaigns may focus on any one of a broad range of issues (except healthcare), for example: economic security, criminal justice, immigration, housing, transportation, and land use
  • Campaigns must advance equity
  • Campaigns must focus on policy decisions being made within 6 months, though funding can’t be used for lobbying
  • Campaigns must be in a geographic area that has previously had little to no health impacts related research

HIP’s funding includes a sub-grant to our partner to support their participation in the project.

If you are working on a campaign that fits these criteria and are interested in using public health framing and data to advance that campaign, please email Jonathan Heller at
