Equity-Focused Dissemination and Implementation Pipeline Pilot Award

These awards aim to stimulate early phase research and/or planning activities that incorporate elements of health equity-focused dissemination and implementation science (EQ-DI). EQ-DI is the science and practice of effective translation, distribution, and use of evidence-based interventions and policies in real-world settings, with an explicit focus on addressing health inequities.

The grant will provide up to $10,000 for a research planning project to be conducted over six months from January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021.The supported planning activities are expected to help provide a solid foundation for a subsequent health equity focused dissemination and implementation grant application.


One of the members of the applying team must have a faculty appointment at the University of Rochester. This team member will be the contact PI for the project. We strongly encourage collaboration with health system, community-based agencies and other entities.
