What is Evidence for Action?

Evidence for Action (E4A) is a Signature Program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. We are dedicated to developing the evidence base to align with RWJF’s vision to build a Culture of Health and commitment to advance health and racial equity. We do this by funding investigator-initiated research and providing technical assistance to researchers and organizations working in communities to evaluate interventions. 

Our Grants

E4A awards grants to encourage and support innovative, rigorous research on the impact of programs, policies, and practices on health and well-being, with a particular focus on research that will help advance health and racial equity.

What We're Learning

Higher COVID-19 vaccination and narrower disparities in US cities with paid sick leave compared to cities without.
