UNC's fiscal readiness efforts (previously referred to as Community-Academic Grants Administration Translation (CAGAT)) started in 2012 to improve the grants management infrastructure for community-academic partnered research. We have collaborated with researchers, grant administrators, and community partners to:

  1. Identify gaps in skills and knowledge related to the pre- and post-award grant period
  2. Develop resources to improve communication related to and knowledge of policies and responsibilities during a grant-funded research timeline, including the application process and management of funded grants

Academic Researcher's Guide

This guide is designed for academic researchers interested in gaining a greater understanding of the grant submission and management process when conducting federally-funded, community-engaged research.*

The guide is for those seeking to:

  • Increase knowledge of the pre- and post-award grants management process for conducting community engaged research
  • Improve skills in completing key procedures for submitting and managing grants that involve community consultants or subcontracts with community organizations
  • Increase skills in communicating key procedures for submitting and managing grants with community partners

Although the guide is based on the pre- and post-awards process at UNC-Chapel Hill, the information presented may be useful for anyone interested in understanding or improving community-academic research partnerships involving grants management.

Community Partner's Guide

Community-engaged research involves partnership-building between community members and academic researchers so that they are better able to communicate about multiple aspects of research.

The Community Partner’s Guide is a resource for any community member working with academic researchers, including those in leadership roles at community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, health-related organizations (e.g. health care practices, health departments, health-related non-profits, hospitals, practice-based research networks, etc.) and other organizations who are interested in community-engaged research.

This guide provides tips on the pre- and post-award grants management process to help improve skills in completing key procedures for submitting and managing grants.
