The Latino Center for Health is excited to announce the 2018 Small Grants Program providing funding to projects and partnerships benefiting Latino communities in Washington state.

Two levels of funding are currently available through the program:

  1. Academic and community partners that are in the early stages of collaboration can apply for grants of up to $5,000 to continue their planning for future research projects
  2. Proposals to conduct pilot research projects can apply for up to $20,000

Funds can be awarded to the community organization, the researcher’s institution or both. Principal Investigators can be either staff at community organizations or researchers at academic institutions.  Academic researchers serving as Principal Investigators must be at one of our affiliated institutions, the University of Washington and Heritage University.

To be considered for this award, you must first submit a letter of intent (LOI).  This letter may be submitted by either the researcher or the community organization, with a letter of support from the non-submitting partner.  The LOI should be a 1-page document and include background for the project, project goals, members of the project team, expected outcomes and level of funding request. Please submit your letter of intent by March 16, 2018 to latcntr@uw.edu with “Latino Center for Health Small Grants Program” in the title. Full applications must be received by April 30, 2018.
