Special Project and Pilot Study Funds (Mini-grant Program) 2002-2019
The purpose of the “Mini-grant” program (Emerging Issues Grants) of the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety was to support small-scale projects and pilot studies that addressed prevention of childhood agricultural disease and injury. From 2002 through 2019, more than 60 projects were funded up to $20,000 each. Individuals affiliated with community-based organizations, public or private institutions, units of local or state government, or tribal government throughout the United States were eligible to apply for funds. Priority was given to organizations and junior faculty who were building their capacity in childhood agricultural health and safety, and projects that generated new partnerships.
Planning is underway for an Emerging Issues grant program designed to support fast-paced, small-scale projects and pilot studies that address prevention of childhood agricultural disease and injury. Please check back for updates.
