Grants and Publications

GRANTS

Fiscal year 2016 -2017 was a busy year of grant submissions with MHDI core faculty and MHDI support staff. In total, we have completed a number of grant applications to funding agencies with our faculty partners. Our MHDI support staff provided help with every step of the application process, including grant development, budgeting support, assistance with subcontracts, submission through NUGrant and assistance with the actual application package preparation. It was an exciting year of possibilities as we expanded our services. If you are interested in submitting a grant that deals with minority health disparities and you would like grant proposal support, please contact Kim Gocchi Carrasco: kstarlin2@unl.edu.
