Funding schedule (dates and deadlines)

We are inviting letters of intent and applications for our 2019 funding cycle.

Letter of Intent and Application Deadlines

Applications and letters of intent, except the CRC pre-application research plan and the Community-Led Conference Award letter of intent, must be submitted online through proposalCENTRAL.

The investigator-initiated awards are offered once per year, and program initiatives are offered periodically. The submission deadlines are listed in the table below.

The IDEA Awards require a Letter of Intent (LOI) and a subsequent invitation from the CBCRP to submit a full application. We expect to issue invitations to approximately half of those who submit LOIs. 

IDEA Award LOI and Standard Conference Award application materials will be available on proposalCENTRAL on September 1, 2018.

CRC Award application materials will be available on proposalCENTRAL by December 1, 2018. Templates for CRC pre-application research plans and Community-Led Conference Award LOIs are available on the CBCRP website now.

Program initiative award applications materials are now available on proposalCENTRAL.
