The Centre for Urban Health Initiatives (CUHI), funded by the Canadian

high-quality, innovative, action-oriented research that investigates the
effects of local physical and social environments on the health of urban
residents.  CUHI is committed to supporting research that privileges
community input and/or whose outcomes have community and policy relevance.
 To help fulfill this mandate, CUHI provides seed grants for pilot projects,
literature reviews, testing of innovative methodologies and partnership
building.   Priority is given to funding activities that will help with the
background preparation and submission of grant proposals to other funding
agencies.  Priority will also be given to applications that are submitted in
partnerships with academics, community agencies and policy-makers.

1.         Urban Physical Environments and Health
Relationship between environmental quality, exposure to a range of toxins
and/or pathogens and/or potential health effects
