Grants Support Small Steps Toward Behavioral Changes

Three grants of $5,000 each will be awarded for projects that encourage individuals to make positive changes in their health behaviors through innovative “nudges.”

The Designing for Better Health competition is sponsored by the  Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Changemakers. The program focuses on financial transactions for social change. Nonprofits and other entities may apply.

Up to 15 finalists will be selected; three winners will receive $5,000 each, and the group that submits the best entries by the early submission deadline (Feb. 18) and the general deadline (April 1) will also receive a camcorder and digital camera.
