The Indiana Trailblazer Planning Grant provides funding to establish new or expand existing community-university partnerships that will develop future collaborative research proposals to address critical health problems.

Partnerships are focused on improving health, examining social determinants of health, or advancing health equity in Indiana. The award is not designed to fund research studies, pilot studies, or supplies for existing partnership work. Examples of partnership development activities include conferences, travel expenses, and quality improvement assessments.

Past projects have included:

  • Improving care for incarcerated youth with autism spectrum disorder
  • Improving perinatal mental health in rural areas through partnership with a women's health center
  • Developing and implementing an obesity prevention agenda for children and families through partnership with a public library

Eligible projects will have both a university lead and a community lead, and both partners must currently work in an Indiana-based institution or organization.
