Grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 are available from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Community Health Innovation Awards, part of the One Great Community program. The awards will be given to local individuals and organizations that have good ideas for solving community health issues.
The Community Health Innovation Awards’ annual grant competition is a way for participants to think boldly and creatively about solutions to health challenges communities face. The awards are a way for UAB, local leaders and area communities to share resources and expertise.
One Great Community is the community engagement component of UAB’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science. Its goal is to connect basic science and clinical researchers with the multiple communities in the state and region. This collaboration will ensure that research efforts respond to and reflect the needs of the community through an active process of community involvement, dialogue and mutual understanding.
All applicants for a 2015 CHIA grant must attend an innovation workshop Saturday, Sept. 19. Click here for registration information for the workshop.
Draft proposals will be due Monday, Oct. 19, by 5 p.m., and final proposals will be due Monday, Nov. 16 by 5 p.m.
