Poverty Solutions and the Detroit Community-Academic Urban Research Center (Detroit URC) partner on an annual grant funding opportunity for collaborations between academic researchers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses, and community-based partners throughout the State of Michigan. The grants support research projects focused on evaluating and strengthening interventions, programs, and policies that seek to prevent and alleviate poverty in the State of Michigan.
A faculty member from any U-M campus must serve as a Principal Investigator. Partnerships with faculty across multiple campuses are encouraged. Requests for proposals are announced each fall.
