We?re looking for new ideas that can make impact in three areas that are crucial to building more successful cities ? attracting and retaining talent, increasing economic opportunity and promoting civic engagement.

The RWJF Culture of Health Prize recognizes communities that have placed a priority on health and are creating powerful partnerships and deep commitments that will enable everyone, especially those facing the greatest challenges, with the opportunity to live well. A Culture of Health recognizes that health and well being are greatly influenced by where we live, work, the safety of our surroundings, and the relationships we have in our families and communities. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of local leaders and community members who are coming together to create conditions for health and prosperity by transforming neighborhoods, schools, and businesses so that good health flourishes everywhere.
