ARCC 2020 Seed Grants to support 11 Community-Engaged Research Partnerships to improve Health Equity


Established in 2008, the Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) supports authentic community-academic research partnerships between Chicagoland communities and Northwestern University that benefit the people being researched and improve health and equity. ARCC advocates for a collaborative approach to research that honors, is driven by, and shares power with communities, as local, cultural, and lived experience experts. Guided by a Steering Committee of Chicagoland community- and faith-based organizations, public agencies and Northwestern scientists, ARCC supports community-academic research partnerships by providing partnership facilitation, capacity-building resources and technical assistance, seed grants, monthly information and resource updates, and advocacy for supportive structural and institutional systems and policies in the research enterprise. ARCC is a program of the Center for Community Health (CCH) and serves Northwestern’s Institute for Public Health & Medicine (IPHAM) and the Northwestern University Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS). We strive to uphold the CCH Principles of Engagement in our approach and the research we support.
