PROGRAM GUIDELINES

PHA is an organization empowered by hope. Our efforts are advanced by the willingness of those in our community to share their talents and ideas.

Through this program, PHA seeks to create new opportunities for those in the PH community to try out new ideas that hold the promise of more rapidly advancing our common cause. Ideas might include, but are not limited to, increased public awareness, education, resource development, advocacy or other initiatives bringing common benefit.

Funding

Each grant will be funded for a maximum of $5,000 in 2014. Please note that in a conference year you may include in your budget up to $1000 towards attending PHA's International Conference and Scientific Sessions. 

Projects should focus on:

  • Researching and developing innovative ways to raise awareness and foster service to the PH community;
  • Extending the reach of an existing program that provides services to the PH community; or
  • Reproducing an existing program that provides services to the PH community in another geographical region or area to address unmet needs.

Timeline

Awards are made once per year. Applications for 2014 are now closed. Applicants will be notified of their status in May 2014. Projects should be completed within a 12-month period with an approximate start date of May 2014.
