APTR Federal Grant Funding Opportunities
The Association for Prevention Teaching and Research frequently seeks applications for grant programs through APTR cooperative agreements with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, DHHS.
CDC Population Health Case Studies
APTR is currently accepting applications for two case study development projects: The first will develop a series of interprofessional problem-based case studies in population health for public health and clinical health professions students. The aim is to deepen health professions students’ understanding and ability to apply population health concepts and principles through exploration and analysis of three CDC and HHS initiatives: Health Impact in 5 Years (HI-5), Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH), and Million Hearts. The second case study project will develop a problem-based case study aimed at deepening health professions students’ understanding of the value of public health–health care collaboration through exploration of the CDC 6|18 Initiative.
Application deadline is January 31, 2017.

CDC Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs)
APTR periodically announces new funding opportunities open to members of APTR and our three CDC partner organizations – AAMC, AACN, and ASPPH. Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs) are one method used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to solicit proposals from eligible applicants in topic areas that are of interest to the CDC Centers, Institutes and Offices (CIOs). WIPs focus on workforce development in various areas of public health practice in domestic or international settings.
Currently, there are no WIPs. When WIPs are availaible APTR will announce to the membership and additional information will be posted to: www.cdc-cafunding.org/wips/start.htm
Interprofessional Prevention Education Institute Evaluation Subgrants
Through this evaluation subaward project, APTR and the CDC seek to evaluate the progress, effectiveness, and impact of pioneering interprofessional prevention education programs in order to promote and replicate successful practices. Fourteen grantees from the original 2007-2008 APTR Institutes for Interprofessional Prevention Education will gather impact data on translation of classroom instruction and the contribution of service-learning since 2008, and will share teaching resources proven to be effective in Interprofessional Prevention Education (IPPE).
