The Northwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center (NWPERRC) researches how to improve emergency systems preparedness and response, with a specific emphasis on communication with vulnerable populations. NWPERRC is devoted to research that has a direct impact on public health practice.

NWPERRC is pleased to announce the availability of funding for up to two pilot projects, each funded at a maximum of $30,000, for a 6–12 month period.

The deadline for submitting your proposal is January 21, 2011.

Funding for these grants is open to public health and tribal agencies in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming, as well as University faculty and post-doctoral students from the six states. Public health and tribal agencies are strongly encouraged to apply.
