Funding Opportunity from CIHR IIPH and ICRH – Operating Grant: Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research (NEIHR)

CIHR’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health has announced the launch of a request for applications (RFA) for the Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research (NEIHR) development grants. NEIHR is a new 15 year $89.4M initiative that aims to establish a solid foundation for Indigenous health research driven by and grounded in Indigenous communities in Canada. This will be accomplished initially by supporting one-year development grants, which will bring together Indigenous Peoples/communities/organizations and other members of the research team, including researchers, knowledge-users and/or partners, to undertake initial planning and proposal development in preparation of an anticipated CIHR NEIHR Network grant RFA. Total amount available for this funding opportunity is $ 900,000, enough to fund approximately 12 grants.
