Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) in partnership with SSHRC
Partnership Grants for National Housing Strategy Longitudinal Outcomes Research
The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), in partnership with SSHRC, has launched the new Partnership Grants for National Housing Strategy Longitudinal Outcomes Research to examine key issues affecting outcomes of investments in affordable housing.
CMHC aims to support multi-disciplinary research teams of social sciences and humanities researchers, life scientists, engineers, and environmental scientists to work collaboratively. They will examine the long-term health, socio-economic, and climate change outcomes of investments in affordable housing, and the links between housing, health, socio-economic, and environmental factors at the household and community levels.
The research may guide evidence-based decision making related to housing provision and the built environment.
This grant is for multi-disciplinary research teams to examine areas holistically, using gender-based analysis plus (GBA+) analytical lens. These teams would contain academic community members belonging to social sciences, life and natural sciences and engineering.
The academic community may work in collaboration with CMHC researchers to deliver the work, share knowledge, and interrogate the same data sources.
There are 2 categories of partnerships that can apply:
- Existing partnerships to foster new research and/or research-related partnership activities that are distinct from the partnership’s previous/ongoing partnership activities.
- New partnerships to foster new research and/or research-related partnership activities that are undertaken by partnerships in their initial stages.
Proposals should involve multiple disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for this funding opportunity.
There is a total of $4.8 million available in this grant.
Maximum Project Value
$410,000 for the first year and $1.1 million for the following years for up to 4 years.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Application will be submitted to SSHRC electronically by the Office of Research Services through the Convergence Portal.
