Funding Opportunities: Pilot Awards and Community Seed Grants

Pilot Program Funding & Support


The CCTS Pilot Funding Program offers awards in the category of community engagement. Please see the funding page to learn more. 

The Community Engagement Core also supports investigators interested in applying for pilot grant funding by providing:

  • Linkages with study coordinators and clinical liaisons during grant development

  • Consultations on parameters of the grant competition (clarification, etc.)

  • Post-submission feedback and assistance on revisions

Community Mini-Grants (Seed) Funding


We provide competitive mini-grant awards (seed grants) to community partners to support  community-oriented projects. We partner with recipients to provide oversight including financial management, human subjects advice, data collection, and protocol/conduct input. See previous awardees here. 

Applications are accepted in response to an RFA. There are no open RFAs at this time.
