Funded Projects

CCREC provided seed funding for research projects that used collaborative methodologies to address the interrelated crises affecting the state of California. The active engagement of communities and policymakers in the research process relied on careful early planning to bring stakeholders together, identify the research questions, and design the research as a whole. CCREC recognized that this process is time consuming and requires resources, but is rarely supported in standard grant processes as it is typically expected that these will be already completed at the time of application. CCREC aimed to promote collaborative research by providing grants that support these crucial early collaborations and processes of research design. The projects listed below were funded by CCREC Planning and Development grants. See below for details on the CCREC Funded Projects.
