ABOUT THIS RESEARCH GRANT

The Georgia Trauma Commission in partnership with the Georgia Trauma Foundation is initiating a grant program that seeks to reduce the burden of injury in Georgia. To realize this goal, we are awarding several grants that will catalyze and advance priorities that address the top mechanisms of injury Georgia: falls, transportation injury, and intentional injury. Successful proposals will be data-driven and leverage community partnerships to provide evidence-based or evidence-informed injury prevention programming targeting at-risk populations. We will prioritize projects that demonstrate:

1.  Engagement of trauma system, community and professional partners

2.  Cost effectiveness

3.  Ease of replication and sustainability in a variety of settings
