The Central States Center for Agricultural Health and Safety Pilot/Feasibility Program funds agricultural safety and health feasibility projects in the region that have the potential to lead to the development of new and creative research, prevention, intervention, outreach, education, evaluation, or translation findings and outcomes. Proposed projects can explore new activities or directions or take advantage of special opportunities.

Examples of pilot or feasibility project activities include:

  • Initial support for developing novel, innovative, cutting-edge research, translation, prevention, intervention, education, or outreach approaches
  • Adapting and evaluating proven prevention, intervention, outreach, or education tools or techniques for new populations, work environments, or delivery systems
  • Obtaining preliminary data, mining existing state or national datasets, or pursuing critical data gaps
  • Supporting investigators from other fields of study to apply their expertise to agriculture safety and health challenges
  • Developing new mechanisms for external or multicenter collaborative partnerships to address emerging agriculture safety and health concerns
  • Exploring new directions that represent significant departures from established approaches yet have the potential to yield great impacts

Faculty, staff, students, and individuals with an interest in agricultural health and safety and the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed project are invited to submit an application.

Eligible applicants include:

  • For-profit, nonprofit, public, or private institutions
  • Units of local or state government and eligible federal agencies
  • Units of local and state tribal government
  • Faith-based or community-based organizations
