Grants available for urban health research

Grants of $2,500 to $10,000 are available from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine to address urban health issues through university-community partnerships. Proposals should use research to improve health conditions that exist or are exacerbated by living in a local distressed area and/or increase the preparedness of providers to address urban health issues.

Applications are encouraged from School of Medicine students and faculty as well as faculty from across campus; however, the principal investigator must be a Case Western Reserve University faculty member.

Applications should be submitted online through CTSA Webgrants. Applicants are welcome to discuss proposal ideas with the Urban Health Initiative Executive Director Amy Sheon (; 368.0915), but advance consultation is not required.

Deadline to apply is Nov. 1. For questions regarding this RFA or your application, contact the CTSC Pilot Program office at or 368.0840, or visit
