2022 Research Incubator RFA

The Great Plains IDeA-CTR network is excited to announce the inaugural Research Incubator.

The goal of the Research Incubator is to assist community-engaged scientists and their partners in the generation of a competitive community-engaged research NIH grant proposal. Interdisciplinary support from the IDeA-CTR cores will provide consultation and feedback over a 3-9 month period to improve the scientific rigor of community-engaged CTR, while still focusing on community issues such as social justice, social determinants of health, and the advancement of health equity.


We are requesting a letter of intent including:

  • Evidence of community engagement
  • Evidence that the research question addresses a GP IDeA-CTR priority health area
  • A description of how the project can move a scientific idea from one CTR stage to the next
  • Potential to benefit the community
  • Potential for federal funding
  • Partnership’s commitment to participate in a 3- or 9-month incubator that culminates with a grant submission
