GPCAH Pilot Grant Program

The Great Plains Center offers grant funding to both researchers and community organizations engaged in agricultural safety and health activities.  The objective of this grant program is to serve as an incubator for new agricultural health and safety research, prevention, intervention, outreach, and translation projects that have high likelihood of leading to more comprehensive activities. 

The 2018 Call for Proposals has ended.  Please stay tuned for the upcoming call in April 2019! 

It is anticipated that the GPCAH will fund three projects for 2018-19.  Project timelines may extend from 12-18 months depending on the scope of the project. Pilot projects addressing aging, sleep deprivation, chemical safety, and mental health will be highly emphasized. 

Funding up to $30K per project is available.
