Development Grants

The Development Grants support communities to come together with self-identified relevant organizations to establish needed expertise to support Indigenous-driven health research. These grants provide support for workshop preparation activities, community personnel support, and travel support to attend the workshop.

The expected planning activities consist of local and/or regional scanning to determine readiness, priority areas of interest and capacity within the community to conduct a research cohort. The Development Grants provided support for workshop preparation activities, community personnel support and travel support to attend the I-HeLTI Strengthening workshop held in Ottawa on June 11th and 12th, 2018.

Please contact I-HeLTI to receive a copy of the I-HeLTI Strengthening Workshop Report.

Team Grants

The Team Grants will support four (4) teams to build infrastructure and capacity along the continuum of care and prevention from pre-conception to pregnancy, infancy and early childhood with a life trajectory perspective relevant to the following research areas: a Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) life trajectory approach, a focus on the prevention of Non-Communicable diseases (NCD) and an intervention cohort design. The funded research teams will therefore collaborate to develop the partnerships, and leverage the necessary expertise and resources to establish this Indigenous-driven I-HeLTI DOHaD Intervention Cohort.
