The Johnson & Johnson Community Health Care and Scholars Program awards grants to nonprofit healthcare organizations—and also provides support for the ongoing success of their projects.

Johnson & Johnson aims to increase the in-house capacity of their grantees so that they can continue to monitor and evaluate their projects, and utilize cutting edge science to implement effective interventions beyond the lifecycle of the grants.

Since 1998, the Bloomberg School has collaborated with Johnson & Johnson to provide technical assistance to the selected grantees through our Johnson & Johnson Scholars Program. The Scholars work closely with grantees to build in-house capacity for monitoring and evaluation, among other responsibilities.
