2016 CDC Funding Opportunities

The 2016 funding cycle is now closed.

Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs) Overview

The announcement of the 2016 WIPs is one method used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to solicit proposals from eligible applicants from member institutions in topic areas that are of interest to the CDC Centers, Institutes and Offices (CIOs). WIPs focus on workforce development in various areas of public health practice in domestic or international settings. While these opportunities do not have committed funding, CIOs have a genuine interest in pursuing these activities.

Potential applicants are encouraged to have a clear understanding of the intent of the WIP before submitting their applications. When submitting an application, it is important to view the listing of current FAQ, as well as the WIP-specific questions.

The 2016 funding cycle is now closed.
