CTSI Pilot Project Funding:
Community Engagement Enhancement Funding
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute provides pilot funding aimed at increasing researchers attention to and capacity for collaboration with a range of communities. Community Engagement Enhancement Funding is designed to help investigators build community engaged health research (CEHR) into ongoing projects as a broad mechanism to advance the dissemination of research funding and engage communities throughout the process.
Funding can be used to: direct investigators’ efforts toward community engagement; enhance communities opportunities for participation as research partners including consultation about health priorities; promote relationships of mutual respect and trust; reward community partners for their expertise; develop sustainable implementation and dissemination strategies and ultimately improve the health and well-being of communities.
