This is a new RFP. The application deadline is February 3, 2017, 5:00 pm (CDT).
The Healthier Workforce Center, funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), is pleased to announce the availability of funds for pilot projects. The mission of the Healthier Workforce Center is to protect and preserve worker safety and health through knowledge generation and dissemination of evidence-based Total Worker Health® practices. The Healthier Workforce Center is in the process of expanding to leverage our existing partnerships with Washington University- St. Louis and the Nebraska Safety Council. Therefore, we are particularly interested in proposals that address the needs of employers and employees in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Iowa.
Grants will be awarded in one of three categories:
- Community Awards: The objective of the HWC Community-based Pilot Project Grant Program is to enhance capacity to deliver evidence-based TWH programs. Community projects will be judged for feasibility and potential impact on the health and well-being of workers. We intend to fund at least one (1) community award, with a maximum permitted budget of $10,000.
- New Investigator Awards: The HWC will fund at least one (1) new investigator award. New investigators may include junior faculty, post-doctoral trainees, medical residents and fellows, doctoral students, senior scientific staff, and senior faculty new to the TWH and HWC programs. If the principal investigator is a student or trainee, a faculty sponsor must be identified. The maximum permitted budget is $30,000.
- Student Research Awards: The HWC will fund up to two (2) student research awards. Advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, medical residents, and fellows from the health sciences, engineering, or other applicable programs are encouraged to apply. Each student research proposal must have a faculty sponsor who will oversee the research. The maximum permitted budget is $5,000.
The application deadline is February 3, 2017, 5:00 pm (CDT).
