The Program in Community Engagement offers two types of funding:
Community Engagement Ignition Awards – Four $5K pilot awards are granted annually to supplement the translational work of community organizations. This award can support the implementation of evidence-based interventions, fund evaluations, prepare pilot data that will allow for the submission of a subsequent, larger grant application, or advance change that promotes health.
Cooperative Agreement Pilot – A $30K pilot award to support community-engaged research. The pilot award is designed to build long-term collaboration through research partnerships, requiring at least 1 representative from a community-based organization and 1 WF investigator to share responsibilities as co-PIs.
Other CTSI funding opportunities are available at https://ctsi.wakehealth.edu/funding-opps.
Deepak Palakshapp and HOPE were awarded the first Community Engagement Cooperative Agreement.
