The Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health (GPCAH) is pleased to announce the availability of additional funds for its small grants projects for 2013-2014. Proposals can be from two areas:
- Basic and applied research projects addressing agricultural safety and health priority issues, needs, or gaps.
- Community partnering proposals from community-based organizations and entities with special ability to engage in outreach, education, and translation of evidence-based methods for preventing agricultural injury and illness among agricultural workers.
The maximum permitted budget is $15,000 per proposal. In late May applicants will be notified of merit review results and award decisions. Funding is contingent on the continued funding of this program by our granting agency. Following completion of IRB review and approval, funds will be available as of October 1st. All pilot projects must be completed by September 29, 2014.
We will review all applications received through August 5, 2013.
We ask that you share the RFPs with potential applicants and colleagues inside and outside your organization. Collaborative and inter-disciplinary applications are encouraged. See the RFP for additional contact information.
