Special Interest Projects (SIPs)

In addition to core research projects, PRCs also conduct additional research called Special Interest Projects (SIPs). A SIP is a health promotion and disease prevention project funded by a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or other Health and Human Service agency. A SIP focuses on a topic of interest or a gap in knowledge or research. It can also support the development of effective state and local public health programs and policies. Only currently funded PRCs are eligible to respond to SIP announcements and projects are competitively selected through a peer-review process.
