Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, government agencies, hospitals, and Tribes for research related to environmental concerns. Funding is intended for studies that involve climate change, environmental justice, and underserved populations. The research should help determine the communities that are particularly susceptible to climate change; explore the health effects of climate change; and find solutions that will lead to positive health outcomes.

Proposed projects should address all of the following research questions:

  1. What may be the most influential community-, population- or lifestage-specific vulnerabilities caused by ongoing climate change that would elevate exposure to pollutants or contaminants and further exacerbate the health effects from exposure to pollutants or contaminants in underserved communities?
  2. What are the cumulative health impacts of climate change-related stressors on vulnerable groups or susceptible lifestages in underserved communities?
  3. How can community-based scientific research results be translated and/or applied to provide effective solutions to reduce climate change impacts on human health in underserved communities?

To the extent possible, the research results or findings should produce innovative yet practical outputs that are applicable or generalizable to other underserved communities across the nation. All research projects will be required to include a Community Engagement Plan to work on community-engaged problem identification (such as community-led assets and vulnerabilities mapping), translation, and community-driven solutions to bring about desired outcomes.
