Grants to Canada researchers affiliated with IHEs for research on how to best design and implement evidence-based programs that will improve public health. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Smaller development grants will be awarded at the LOI stage.
The Healthy Cities Implementation Science (HCIS) Team Grants funding opportunity is offering grants focused on increasing understanding of how to design, implement and promote the systematic and equitable uptake of evidence-based interventions (i.e.interventions that have been piloted or tested in a setting and found to be promising) in multiple urban1 environments to improve population health and well-being.
For the purpose of this funding opportunity, interventions must have a population health focus and aim to positively affect all or some of the people within a city by improving the environmental, social, cultural, and/or structural determinants of health. The interventions can include policy changes, introduction of a new program or practice, and/or physical changes to the environment.
The six (6) CIHR thematic research areas are:
Proposed research projects must be relevant to at least (1) thematic area but may also be relevant to multiple thematic areas.
For any of the six thematic research areas above, applicants can also choose to apply for supplementary funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to support their interventions. Projects must be focused on the promotion of healthy living and the prevention of chronic diseases. Participants interested in applying for these supplementary funds must focus on primary prevention, which involves activities aimed at reducing risk factors (i.e. unhealthy eating, physical inactivity and tobacco use) leading to chronic disease.
In addition to being relevant to at least one thematic area listed above, PHAC will consider applications relevant to one or more of the following priority areas and/or relevant to healthy living and chronic disease prevention:
