Pilot Grants

Not accepting applications.

The HICAHS Pilot Grant Program has been suspended. We will not be releasing an RFA or funding any projects in 2023-2024.

The HICAHS Pilot Grants Program funded innovative research projects that promoted worker health and safety in the agriculture, forestry, or fishing industries. This funding opportunity was targeted to students, post-docs, junior investigators or investigators new to occupational safety and health in agriculture.

This research pilot grant program has been highly successful, leading to the generation of federally-funded R01 grants, the development of new educational materials and intervention techniques, the training of student and junior investigators and publication of peer-reviewed journal articles and conference presentations.
