2023 Community Mini-Grant Funding

Full RFA is available for download at the bottom of the page. 

The University of Kentucky Center for Clinical and Translational Science Community & Collaboration (UK CCTS C&C) core facilitates collaborative research among lay communities, practitioners, and academic researchers to address complex health issues facing central Appalachia and Kentucky communities and seeks to improve the health of communities through community engaged research. Expanded partnerships among these communities will enable the UK CCTS C&C Core to identify health-related needs, pinpoint relevant and timely research opportunities, and create new academic-community collaborations to address challenges and improve the health of Appalachian populations in Kentucky.  

We are now requesting applications from community partners for funding of $2500 each to support evidence-based or evidence-informed health outreach projects. Four applications will be funded.

Projects must be conducted between June 26, 2023 and June 26, 2024. Requests for funds may not exceed $2500. Applications must address the priority categories specified in the Award Priorities section of the RFA.

Review criteria will include: 

  • the scope of the project (i.e., whether it is feasible to complete in the study period), 
  • the extent to which the project is evidence-based (i.e., shown in previous research or practice to be effective), and
  • the outreach capacity (i.e., demonstration of broad collaborations or partnerships with local, regional, and/or state programs).
