Seed Grants from CUHI

The Centre for Urban Health Initiatives (CUHI), funded by the Canadian
Institute of Health Research (CIHR), facilitates the development of
high-quality, innovative, action-oriented research that investigates
the effects of local physical and social environments on the health of
urban residents.  CUHI is committed to supporting research that
privileges community input and/or whose outcomes have community and
policy relevance.

To help fulfill this mandate, CUHI provides seed grants for pilot
projects, literature reviews, testing of innovative methodologies and
partnership building.   Priority is given to funding
activities that will help with the background preparation and
submission of grant proposals to other funding agencies.  Priority
will also be given to applications that are submitted in partnerships
with academics, community agencies and policy-makers.  

Research projects should relate to the topics of interest in this seed
grant call by one or more of CUHI's Research Interest Groups:

  1. Urban Physical Environments and Health
  2. Food Security and Urban Agriculture
  3. Neighbourhoods and Health.

Seed grant awards are available for projects of up to one year in length. Deadline for application is September 29, 2006.
