Request for Proposals for 2023-24 CEED Pilot Grant Funding


The NIEHS Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease (CEED), in collaboration with the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI), is soliciting applications for its 2023-2024 Pilot Project Program.  Pilot funding supports new environmental health research with the potential to improve human health and establish or strengthen community partnerships. CEED is funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS, P30-ES005022).

The mission of CEED is to understand how environmental exposures are integrated with host and environmental factors to impacting human health. The Pilot Project Program is used to improve human health through education, outreach, mechanistically based intervention, prevention, modalities, and to enhance foster relationships with community partners. 

Community Based Applications:

This year’s RFP encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to problems in the environmental health sciences, CEED is interested in all aspects of environmental health research, including climate change, and is particularly in supporting projects involving partnerships with community groups.  Applications originating from community groups are particularly welcomed.

All community based applications must include a CEED member as a Co-PI.  This is necessary due to University and Federal regulations regarding transfer of award funds and for formal University Human Subjects (IRB) approval.
