Evidence to Action Awards

Evidence to Action Awards for UC and CSU Faculty

The California Initiative for Health Equity & Action is committed to supporting the translation of research into California state health policy.  Cal-IHEA supports UC and CSU investigators through 12-month Evidence to Action awards to expedite the uptake of evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies to appropriate end-users.  The Evidence to Action Award supports the dissemination of research results using a “change package” to improve the use of evidence generated by UC and CSU faculty in state policy decision-making.  Each project’s change package is unique, but may include policy briefs, toolkits, implementation guides, training curriculum, videos, checklists, dissemination and promotional materials, health education materials, evaluation tools, etc.


This award includes up to $35,000 in direct (total) costs per project for up to 12 months to implement the project’s change package.  Indirect costs are not allowed.  No-cost extensions will not be considered. 

Proposals are considered on a rolling basis.
