Episcopal Health Foundation announces funding opportunity for a Health Impact Assessment

The Episcopal Health Foundation is teaming up with the Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts. We're seeking to support a Texas-based organization wanting to conduct a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) on an issue relevant to the Episcopal Health Foundation's strategic plan and critical issues facing Texans relevant to community health.

Through this Request for Proposals, the Health Impact Project will support one HIA demonstration project that informs a specific upcoming decision on a proposed local or state policy, program, plan, or project. The HIA must inform a decision in Texas, with a projected impact on the population residing in the 57 counties served by the Episcopal Diocese of Texas communities. More broadly, the HIA will contribute to a body of evidence that showcases the utility of HIAs in various geographic settings and diverse topics.

The HIA grant selected through this request for proposals will be supported and administered by the Health Impact Project with funding from EHF. 

One grant will be awarded. The grant will be up to $100,000 and must be completed within 18 months.

We encourage proposals from organizations representing a range of fields and sectors, such as education, economic and social policy, agricultural policy, energy, environmental regulation, transportation, and natural resource development. Prior experience conducting HIAs is NOT required. The Health Impact Project will provide tailored training and technical assistance to each grantee throughout the grant period.
