The Small Planning Grant Program, now in its ninth round of funding, seeks to facilitate new, equitable collaborative relationships between academic and community entities and enhance their capacity to conduct and disseminate research focused on the social and physical environment and health equity, and translate research findings into action, with the aim of improving the health and quality of life of Detroit residents. The grant program funds two types of grants: 1. Partnership Formation and Maintenance and 2. Project Development.
We are delighted to announce that the University of Michigan Vice Provost for Global Engagement and Interdisciplinary Academic Affairs and the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) Communities Engagement Program are helping to support this Small Planning Grant Program in Detroit.

Funding Level: Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded, with a grant duration period of one year. The number and amount of awarded grants is based on the quantity and quality of the submitted proposals. A total of $20,000 maximum will be dispersed across grant recipients.
