The Center for Public Health Initiatives (CPHI) and the Community Engagement and Research (CEAR) core of the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) at the University of Pennsylvania are collaborating on a pilot grant program to fund research with public and community health relevance.

The CEAR Core of the CTSA will fund proposals that foster community-based research, especially studies that use a participatory framework. This includes research conducted in community settings or using a participatory research framework and actively involving community stakeholders in the conceptualization, design, implementation, and/or evaluation. “Community” is defined broadly to include populations in neighborhoods and organizations, including health care settings.
