Evidence for Action (E4A) funds rigorous research evaluating health and other outcomes of local, state, and national policies, programs, and interventions in order to determine which strategies are likely to be most effective in improving population health, well-being, and health equity. This webinar is designed to introduce representatives of local boards of health to E4A as both a source of potential funding for local research projects and a resource for high-quality evidence to inform your decision-making about programs and policies that impact the health, equity, and well-being of your communities and constituents.  

During the webinar, the E4A Deputy Director will share information about the application and review process and offer an overview of the range of currently funded research projects. An E4A grantee will also provide a more detailed description of her team’s efforts to evaluate the impact of a housing redevelopment project on resident and community health and well-being.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to identify initiatives within their own communities that may be well-positioned for E4A research funding.
  • Attendees with understand the process and requirements for applying for E4A funding and be aware of the variety of resources available to applicants.
  • Attendees will recognize E4A as a future source of high-quality evidence to inform decisions about local interventions and priorities.
