Planning Grant Program

For University faculty and/or staff and community members seeking to develop relationships, the expected outcome is that participants: develop an authentic, cohesive, equitable, and sustainable partnership toward a proposed project that utilizes participatory action research, or other creative strategies for addressing community-identified problems.

Starting in 2020, the Faculty Planning Grant Program and the Planning Grant program for Community-University Partnership was combined into one grant program.
