Innovative Small Grants Program
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Before we will consider a grant proposal for funding, we need to receive a one-page “letter of intent” which describes the project that you will be proposing. It need not be in great detail, but it should indicate the “innovative” nature of your work. (Please see the definition of “innovative” below.) Please send it by e-mail, FAX or regular mail before the specified deadline for the letter of intent in the information below. After reviewing it, we will notify you as to whether we will accept a full proposal. Child Health Foundation wishes to receive proposals from interested health workers, investigators, or community organizations for innovative research or innovative service projects directed at improving the health of infants and young children. Proposals may be submitted by individuals or groups. Areas of priority include: development of biomedical and social technologies; and adaptation and implementation of technologies in local situations that may have widespread applications. Projects that involve only general medical care of children but without innovative aspects will not be considered. To see a summary of projects CHF has funded, click here The projects should be for no more than one year and should be able to document measurable results. The projects may address child health issues in a developing country or in the United States. Budgets should not exceed US$5,00O. The projects will be reviewed by the Program Committee of the Child Health Foundation. Outside reviewers will be used if necessary. The number of projects approved depends on the amount of funding available.
