Funding: Up to $75K for Proposals in Healthy Child Weight – Apply by 2/1/2019.

Pilot opportunity from the Harvard Catalyst Community Engagement Program, providing one-year funding of up to $75,000 for investigators and community partners conducting research that advances the uptake of evidence-based practices and policies related to healthy child weight through dissemination and implementation science, while increasing academic-community collaboration by supporting teams of investigators and community practitioners or policymakers that can be sustained beyond the grant period.

Four areas of particular interest are:

  • Research projects aimed at advancing uptake of evidence-based prevention and treatment interventions in clinical and community settings;
  • Research projects aimed at accelerating evidence-based policies for obesity prevention and treatment;
  • Research projects aimed at reducing disparities and achieving equity through evidence translation; and
  • Research projects aimed at considering resource utilization, cost, and cost-effectiveness as it relates to intervention implementation and dissemination.

Applicant teams are required to include at least one researcher and one community partner at the time of submitting the LOI to demonstrate strong commitment for collaboration.

Letters of intent due February 1, 2019.
