Application Deadline: REACH Community-Academic Grants Program

October 27, 2023

The Rutgers Equity Alliance for Community Health (REACH) is accepting applications for its Community-Academic Grants through Friday, October 27, 2023.

REACH is a universitywide effort designed to bring Rutgers’ four chancellor-led units together to address health and socioeconomic inequities through academic-community partnerships. REACH’s work focuses on five social determinants of health: education, employment, food access and food security, housing, and population health, in three New Jersey cities: Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark.

The purpose of REACH’s grant funding is to put research into practice by working in partnership with community residents and leaders on new approaches to bring about long-lasting systemic change and achieve health equity by addressing issues of inequity that include structural and systemic racism impacting all five of our social determinant focus areas. The REACH Community-Academic Grants program comprises two funding categories:

Community Impact Grants will fund projects focused on positively impacting the community in a demonstrable way through an evidence-based strategy for change. These projects are not required to have an ostensible research focus or lead to research funding. The impetus for this funding category is twofold: 1) to incentivize translation of research and/or replication of community-identified successful operations into practice and 2) to serve as a mechanism to provide bridge funding for continuity of community engagement projects that positively impact socioeconomic and health outcomes.

Research Seed Grants will fund projects that have the potential to advance knowledge and identify new evidence-based strategies for change. These projects are required to have an ostensible research focus that will lead to ongoing research funding. The impetus for this funding category is twofold: 1) to incentivize faculty to further develop community partnerships to inform their research direction and 2) to provide funding for the collection of preliminary data and results that will make future grant applications to other funders more successful.

A total of $1.5 million will be awarded in this funding cycle, with maximum grants of up to $200,000 for two years.

Learn more or apply. An informational webinar for interested applicants and community partners took place on September 27; watch the webinar recording online.
