The Alliance for Health Policy seeks to invigorate bipartisan discussion with three-year grant award


November 21, 2023, Washington, D.C. – The Alliance for Health Policy received a $2,000,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to launch a new body of work dedicated to bipartisan learning opportunities focused on health coverage policy in America. This funding will support a new chapter in the Alliance’s 30-plus year history of catalyzing solutions focused, bipartisan dialogue with policymakers.

The environment on Capitol Hill has changed dramatically since the founding of the Alliance more than 30 years ago. These resources will enable the organization to address the request from federal health policy staff to learn as a community.

“The Alliance has served as a trusted educational resource for federal policymakers and the health policy community for over 30 years. This work will enable us to build on our rich history of bipartisanship and bring innovative approaches to health policy education,” said the Alliance President and CEO, Sarah Dash, MPH.

“At RWJF, we believe that access to healthcare is essential to everyone’s ability to achieve and maintain good health – and it is not possible without affordable, quality health insurance coverage,” said Alyson K. Northrup, senior policy officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. “This grant will enable the Alliance for Health Policy to bring fresh energy to bipartisan engagement on health coverage policy ideas.”
