Center for Rural Pennsylvania Announces Funding for COVID-19 Projects

The Center for Rural Pennsylvania, a legislative agency that serves as a resource for rural policy research within the Pennsylvania General Assembly, is issuing a special Request for Proposals (RFP) for policy research related to COVID-19 in rural communities. Grant awards are made by the Center’s Board of Directors.

Please access the RFP for more information on topic details and submission guidelines. Proposals will be evaluated in two rounds. To be considered for the first round, proposals must be received by February 15, 2021. Proposals for the second round of funding must be received by March 30, 2021. The Center’s enabling legislation allows the Center to award grants to qualified faculty members of Pennsylvania State University, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) universities, and the regional campuses of the University of Pittsburgh. A qualified faculty member must serve as the project director.
