CIHR Healthy Cities Research Initiative

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on November 28, 2022 in Research Funding

Updated December 2, 2022 - internal deadline added

The Planning Grants for Implementing Healthy Urban Policy supports collaboration between city leaders and researchers and co-development of activities related to implementing and evaluating interventions in urban settings that would improve health and wellbeing. The goal of this funding opportunity is to facilitate the design of implementation research projects that could possibly be funded in the future through CIHR’s Project Grant Program, CIHR’s Healthy Cities Research Initiative, or opportunities from other funders.

This opportunity is composed of two parts: a five-day immersive workshop in a leading healthy city, and a post-workshop planning and knowledge mobilization activity/event.

The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $272,260, enough to fund approximately four (4) grants. The maximum amount per grant is $68,065 per year for up to one (1) year. Of this $68,065:

  • $43,065 is designated to cover registration and travel costs of participation in the five-day workshop
  • Up to $25,000 is for the planning and knowledge mobilization activities
