Latino Center for Health is now accepting applications for the 2019 Small Grants Program

The Latino Center for Health is excited to announce the 2019 Small Grants Program, which provides 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 $15,000

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.
