CHCACT-UConn Research Collaborative
The intent of our collaboration is to facilitate and support the establishment of research partnerships between UConn faculty and clinical staff at community health centers throughout Connecticut.
Please see below for new opportunities or updates:
FY20 InCHIP-CHCACT Health Research Seed Grant
UConn’s Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and Policy (InCHIP) is offering seed grant funding for pilot work that will directly support a future external grant application in the area of community-engaged health research in Federally Qualified Health Centers.
This is a great opportunity to partner on research that addresses critical clinical and health systems issues.
There is at least one award of $15,000 for this seed grant competition.
Funded projects must be consistent with InCHIP’s mission and address a health need prioritized by one or more FQHCs.
Eligible studies include research in health behavior or health policy conducted in an FQHC, using a participatory research framework and actively involving FQHC staff in the conceptualization, design, implementation, and/or evaluation.
In order to participate in the study, the FQHC must be a member of the Community Health Center Association of Connecticut (CHCACT).
For more information please download the follow PDF files.
If you have any questions regarding our collaboration with InCHIP, please contact Marlene Moranino, Senior Director of Clinical Programs (MMoranino@chcact.org).
