Latino Health Summit Small Project Grants Deadline Sept. 1

Proposals are due September 1, 2017


The purpose of the Latino Health Summit Project Grant is to facilitate projects in health research that benefit the Latino community. These grants will allow awardees to apply lessons learned during the 2017 Latino Health Summit to conduct preliminary activities focused on health outcomes and impact that will prepare teams to apply for research and other grants in the future.

Examples of possible activities include:

  • Conducting a needs assessment to better understand a health problem
  • Completing an environmental scan to better understand the local context of a health issue
  • Facilitating activities that assess community readiness to address a health problem
  • Collecting pilot data needed to demonstrate potential impact
  • Building capacity of current staff
  • Expand existing programs to address priority areas of Mental Health, Health Navigation and Workforce Development.

Examples of activities that are not a good fit for this grant are facilitating meetings, providing health services, or hosting events.

Grant Funding
Awardees have the opportunity to receive up to $1,000 for an 8 month funding period. We expect funding will be used to support preliminary research or programmatic activities. For example, funding might be used to provide incentives to participants, to pay for costs associated with evaluation, or to purchase supplies needed to engage the community in research activities.

Who Should Apply?
The Latino Health Summit Project Grant is open to all potential attendees of the 2018 Latino Health Summit who intend to create or expand existing programs in 3 priority areas: Mental Health, Health Navigation, and Workforce Development.  Proposals are due September 1, 2017 by midnight.  Awardees will be notified in October.  Project period is November 1, 2017-July 1, 2018.
