Request for Proposals: The Boston Children’s Hospital Center for Collaborative Community Research (C-CORE)

The Boston Children’s Hospital Center for Collaborative Community Research (C-CORE) is announcing its third round of pilot grant funding.  Proposals are being solicited from community-academic teams for the development of community-based participatory research (CBPR) pilot projects on child health issues for which there are significant health disparities in the City of Boston.  Up to $30,000 is available for one pilot grant.  The awarded amount will depend on project scope.  Full proposals are due September 20, 2013 by 5PM.

In contrast to previous years, this year’s round of funding is open to teams consisting of a community PI  and an academic Co-PI from any accredited academic institution (post-secondary or higher education) in the City of Boston and surrounding communities.  Community organizations must be based in the City of Boston.  As in previous years, all funds must go to the community partner.

The Request for Proposals (RFP), FAQs, and informational slide show can be downloaded below.  

Interested investigators may email Chong-Min Fu at RFP@chbccore.org to ask questions and/or set up an appointment to discuss the proposed project with a member of the C-CORE team.

About C-CORE: The Boston Children’s Hospital Center for Collaborative Community Research was created in 2010 with grant funding from the National Institutes of Health and internal funding from Boston Children’s Hospital.  C-CORE aims to reduce child health disparities in Boston through an innovative partnership among four cornerstones of children’s health and education in the city – Boston Children’s Hospital, the Boston Public Health Commission, Boston Public Schools, and the Boston Conference of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers.  C-CORE activities are guided by the principles of CBPR, an approach that engages community members and researchers in an equitable partnership throughout the research process.
