The School of Public Affairs & Civic Engagement’s Center for Applied Housing Research (CAHR) is offering two mini-grants of $5,000 each for the 2018-2019 academic year. These mini-grants will support faculty-student teams working on applied research that generates new knowledge to address affordable housing issues at the state, regional or local level. Faculty who receive these grant awards will be required to submit a working paper (7-10 pages) summarizing their project and the key findings and implications for the field. Tenured and tenure-track faculty as well as lecturers are eligible to apply. Faculty on sabbatical leave during the application or award period may apply. Faculty participating in the early retirement program (FERP) are not eligible for this grant program.

For award consideration, please submit a one-page letter of interest describing your research project as soon as possible, including: (1) the significance to the affordable housing field; (2) specific goals and methods; and (3) a timeline and chances of successful completion. Also attach your CV and email your application to Ayse Pamuk and Jeremy Hill no later than Feb. 12. Letters of interest will be reviewed on a rolling basis until promising projects are identified. Papers must be completed by Sept. 16, 2019.

More information about CAHR and the working papers completed during the first round of the grant cycle can be viewed on the CAHR website.
