Call for Applications: RADx-UP Community Collaboration Mini-Grant (C2G)

What is the RADx-UP Community Collaboration Mini-Grant (C2G)? 

The C2G initiative is designed to be a small manageable project that will focus on the use of emerging testing technologies in identified COVID-19 vulnerable and underserved populations. Researchers seeking funds to help advance capacity, training, support, and community experience with COVID-19 testing initiatives can apply for up to $50,000 in funding and if awarded, will have one year to complete the project NIH-funded RADx-UP Community Collaboration Mini-Grant project.

Who should apply? 

Researchers from “non-governmental” community serving organizations, faith-based organizations, community-based clinics, and tribal nations and organizations are all encouraged to apply.

How can you use $50,000 for COVID-19 testing? 

Mini-grant funds may be budgeted to:

  • support personnel
  • use of services, including, where applicable, salary support for personnel
  • travel necessary for community engagement
  • testing supplies and lab costs, or
  • other purposes deemed necessary for the successful execution of the proposed project.
