Description:

The Partnership Grants to support CMHC’s National Housing Strategy (NHS) Longitudinal Outcomes Research is a funding opportunity to support research and related activities that examines:

  • The long-term health, socio-economic, and climate change outcomes of investments in affordable housing
  • 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. The overall goal of the Partnership Grants for National Housing Strategy Longitudinal Outcomes Research is to support prospective cohort research on outcomes of NHS and other investments in affordable housing.

CMHC recognizes that housing research requires a multi-disciplinary approach with interjurisdictional data. These public policy challenges transcend the boundaries and parameters set by respective disciplines. As a result, they aim to assess housing investments using four main themes in a holistic approach informed by a GBA+ analytical lens:

  • Health, including mental wellbeing and physical health, both self-reported and through a life sciences approach of all ages of the population, including adequate housing (effect of mold and pest, sleep hygiene, air quality, heating and cooling), and suitable housing related to overcrowding.
  • The social outcomes of housing investments on populations in housing precarity, and the links to justice system, with household stability, safety and security, displacement, and social inclusion.
  • Economic outcomes related to employment and income.
  • Better built environments, and the influence on climate change and energy poverty impacts, community resilience of the housing sector, and the related impacts on populations experiencing vulnerability.

Eligibility:

Funding is awarded through open competition. Proposals should involve multiple disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for this funding opportunity.

Projects whose primary objective is curriculum development are not eligible for funding under this funding opportunity.

Application/Nomination Process:

Applications must be submitted by an eligible Canadian post-secondary institution that meets the institutional eligibility requirements. The project director must be affiliated with the host institution (the applicant), and prepares the application on behalf of the host institution and the formal partnership. The term “institution” from here on in this description refers only to post-secondary institutions.

To ensure that teams awarded a grant have sufficient time to dedicate to the project, award holders may serve as an applicant or co-applicant on only one grant. It is, therefore, recommended that individuals limit their participation as an applicant or co-applicant to a single application.

Project directors who have received a SSHRC grant of any type but have failed to submit an achievement report by the deadline specified in their Notice of Award are not eligible to apply for another SSHRC grant until they have submitted the report.

Postdoctoral researchers are eligible to be project directors. CMHC will consider it a strength of the proposal if teams are diverse.
