2019-2020 CHIPTS Community-Research Kick Start Grant

CHIPTS is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to help support workshops, planning meetings, symposia, or other activities that are designed to promote new science, foster new collaborations, or increase capacity building. The purpose of the program is to “kick start” the development of new research ideas and other projects to address emerging issues and needs of communities most impacted by HIV. Community collaboration and engagement are strongly encouraged.   The proposed activities must contribute towards CHIPTS scientific theme of addressing the intersection of HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention and mental health and/or substance use co-morbidities. The funding amount can range from $500 up to $5,000 direct costs, based on proposed activities. Proposals are reviewed and decided upon by the CHIPTS leadership committee. Proposals may be funded in whole or in part, and no single award will exceed $5,000. Awards for this funding cycle must be spent by January 31, 2020. Also all spending is subject to federal restrictions. A brief summary report will be required within 60 days from project end date.
