The purpose of the mini-grant program of the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety (NCCRAHS) is to support small-scale projects and pilot studies that address prevention of childhood agricultural disease and injury.

Funds are available to support projects that:

  • Test innovative strategies
  • Develop new partnerships beyond safety professionals
  • Identify and/or incorporate new and emerging trends in agriculture
  • Translate research findings into practical applications

Highest funding priority will be given to projects that:

  • Address persistent patterns of childhood injury in agriculture
  • Address issues pertaining to barriers, motivators, and interventions for keeping young children out of the farm worksite
  • Address vulnerable populations, such as immigrant workers’ children, Anabaptists, African Americans, and Native Americans

Individuals affiliated with community-based organizations, public or private institutions, units of local or state government, or tribal government throughout the United States are eligible to apply for funds.

Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with NIOSH Agricultural Research Centers or Universities on project design and evaluation. Priority will be given to organizations and junior faculty who are building their capacity in childhood agricultural health and safety, and those that generate new partnerships.
