The University of Washington Population Health Initiative has awarded COVID-19 population health equity research grants to six projects involving partnerships between UW School of Public Health researchers and community leaders. These awards are intended to support collaborations with communities of color – which are being disproportionately impacted by the pandemic – to develop COVID-19 research projects that address community-identified needs. HIPRC’s core faculty members Ali Rowhani-Rahbar M.D., Ph.D., MPH and Megan Moore, Ph.D., MSW were a few of the many that were selected.

In all, 14 different teams of UW faculty researchers and community leaders were awarded COVID-19 population health equity research grants. The grants awarded by the initiative were partially matched by additional school, college, departmental and external funds, bringing the total value of these awards to approximately $378,000.

Dr. Rowhani-Rahbar’s study will be focused on: COVID-19 and Civil Domestic Violence Protection Orders in King County: Implications for Population Health and Justice Equity.
