October 8, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

MICHR’s Community Engagement (CE) Program has launched a statewide opportunity to fund community-engaged research partnerships and projects addressing community health priorities across the state of Michigan. The Statewide Building Capacity for Research and Action (SBCRA) mechanism aims to enhance and build capacity of community-academic teams to conduct research and utilize the principles of community-engaged research.

This funding opportunity will support projects that lead to an increased number of sustainable and equitable community-academic partnerships, address community health priorities and dissemination of research findings. Applications may request up to $5,000 for partnership development activities; partnership sustainability activities; and dissemination of research project findings. Academic partners are not limited to U-M.

For more information visit MICHR’s website.
