Call for Proposals: Active Living Policy and Environmental Studies Program Special Solicitation

National Program Office: Active Living Policy and Environmental Studies Program

July 29, 2002 Application Deadline for Active Living Policy Research Grants

The Active Living Policy and Environmental Studies Program (ALPES) is a $12.5-million national program of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation created to support investigator-initiated research to identify environmental factors and public and private policies that influence physical activity within communities and populations. In a special solicitation of proposals, the program initially seeks research that will develop, test and validate measurement tools and methods that can be used to identify environmental and policy correlates of physical activity and to evaluate interventions. Up to $700,000 is set aside for studies in four topics. Transdisciplinary projects involving researchers from diverse fields, such as public health, transportation, urban planning, parks and recreation, behavioral science and exercise science are encouraged. The application deadline is July 29, 2002. For the full text of this Special Solicitation, including a description of the targeted research topics, visit The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Web site, . Once at the site, click on "Applying for a Grant," then "Calls for Proposals." Subsequent Calls for Proposals to be issued later in 2002 will address the broader objectives of ALPES.
