Eligibility and Funding

We welcome your application for the 2021-2022 Barclay-Giel Seed Grant program administered by the PHS Commissioned Officers Foundation for the Advancement of Public Health (COF). The application will be open from September 7, 2021 through November 12, 2021 at 5 pm ET. Grant awards are expected to be announced in February 2022. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. These grants are made possible by the bequest of CAPT Martha Barclay-Giel, a Commissioned Officer of the U.S. Public Health Service. The purpose of the grant program is to stimulate the advancement of community-based public health programs. Information about the COF is available online at www.phscof.org. Information about the grant recipients from previous years can be found here.

Eligible Applicants: Any non-profit entity, including 501(c)(3) or local/state/tribal organizations, whose primary mission is addressing one or more public health issues.

Eligible Public Health Issues: The grants are open to all areas of public health. However, areas of prime interest for this grant cycle are the Surgeon General's Priorities. These include Opioids and Addiction, Tobacco, Community Health and Economic Prosperity, Oral Health, and Emerging Public Health Threats. Additionally, organizations with projects that focus on stopping the spread of health misinformation, in support of the Surgeon General's latest advisory, are strongly encouraged to apply.

Project Design: Funds may be used for any type of project such as community-wide public health initiatives, strategic public health plans, or “proof of concept” intervention projects. Funds are not intended for clinical care or patient treatment. We also encourage applicants to consider how projects may support the Healthy People 2030 Topics and Objectives (https://health.gov/healthypeople).

Grant Amounts and Reporting: The maximum grant amount is $10,000, but COF may elect to provide less than the full amount of requested funds. All awarded funds must be used by June 30, 2023. There is no opportunity for additional or continuation grant funds for the same grant, but previous awardees are welcome to submit an application for a new project. A written report/video/ photos/supplemental materials of the project will be due at the completion of the project or no later than June 30, 2023.
