Consumer and community involvement


Microgrants program

Microgrants program

We are committed to supporting best practice consumer and community involvement across the Health Translation Queensland partnership and the wider health and health research community.

We understand that not having enough funding to pay consumers for their time can be a barrier to consumer and community involvement in research and project planning and design, particularly in the very important early stages of research project ideation and planning.

That’s why we introduced the Health Translation Queensland Consumer and Community Involvement (CCI) microgrants program, to support research projects to fund consumer involvement in project design and research priority setting.

PLEASE NOTE: From 24 May 2024 the CCI microgrants program will be on hold while we conduct an evaluation of the scheme. We hope to relaunch this later in 2024. Please sign up to our eNews to be kept updated.

Funding available

The CCI microgrants program usually provides funding in the order of $1,000.


To be eligible to apply, individuals must meet one of the following criteria:

  1. Affiliated with a Health Translation Queensland partner organisation
  2. Belong to an underserved community or your project aims to support an underserved community
  3. Work in the field of primary care.

Selection criteria

For your application to be successful you will need to meet the following assessment criteria. You will need to outline how your research project:

  • supports Health Translation Queensland’s Strategic Plan
  • supports high quality consumer and community involvement practice
  • demonstrates collaboration – across organisations and disciplines
  • demonstrates value for money.


Microgrant applications take approximately 2-4 weeks to assess once submitted. Please be mindful of this timeframe in relation to your project deadlines.
