The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is accepting applications for its 2015 Culture of Health Prize, an annual program which honors outstanding community efforts and partnerships that are helping people live healthier lives. Up to ten communities across the United States will be awarded $25,000 each and have their accomplishments celebrated and shared broadly with the goal of raising awareness and inspiring locally driven change. Community partners can decide together how to use the money to benefit the community. To be eligible, a community must be in the United States and be defined as a town, city, county, tribe or tribal community, or region. Each winning community will be required to designate a local U.S. governmental or tax-exempt public charity operating in its community to accept the $25,000 prize on the community's behalf.
