Support Grant for Community-Led Projects on LGBTQIA/2S Wellness through an Intersectional Lens
For the first time in 2021, the CIHR Institute of Gender and Health (CIHR-IGH) launched a program to support community-led projects on the health and wellness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual and Two-Spirit (LGBTQIA/2S) communities. The goal of this new initiative was to provide an opportunity for Community Organizations with no prior research experience to obtain grant funding to help evaluate the reach, effectiveness and benefits of their community-based interventions to improve health and wellness for LGBTQIA/2S communities.
CIHR-IGH is thrilled to announce the awardees of the 2021 launch of this Support Grant competition. A total of 11 Community Organizations have each been granted $5,000 in funds for one year to pursue research activities.
As a follow-up to this first launch, CIHR-IGH is pleased to announce the 2022 launch of the Support Grant for Community-Led Projects on LGBTQIA/2S Wellness through an Intersectional Lens funding opportunity.
Similar to the first launch, this funding program is an opportunity for Community Organizations with no prior research experience to evaluate the reach, effectiveness and benefits of their community-based interventions to improve health and wellness for LGBTQIA/2S communities. Funds may also be used to inform the implementation and/or sustainability and scale-up of new or existing community-based interventions to improve health and wellness for LGBTQIA/2S communities. Projects that explore barriers to and opportunities for positive physical, social and mental health outcomes for LGBTQIA/2S individuals, families and communities are also permitted, using interview techniques and by facilitating collaboration with communities.
Note: If your organization already has research experience or holds research funds, you are not eligible for this Support Grant, with the exception of organizations that are current recipients of a CIHR-IGH Support Grant for Community-Led Projects on LGBTQIA/2S Wellness (2021 Launch).
The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $100,000, enough to fund 10 grants valued at up to $10,000 each. The duration of all grants is one year.
