The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted children and adolescents in ways that are not yet fully realized or understood

The social, emotional, developmental, and educational trajectories of children have been significantly altered by the pandemic due to events such as changes in family income and dynamics, closures of schools and childcare settings, and disruption of health and social services. Iterative implementation and evaluation of pandemic mitigation strategies are needed to better understand what can be done now and in the future to help children recover and thrive.

To help address this critical area of need, in early 2023, CPR³ released an RFP calling for research related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and adolescents (including health and social determinants of health), and the role of intersecting social, structural, and economic factors at household and community levels.

This RFP is now closed. Register to receive updates on awarded projects and other news. See our Social & Economic Outcomes and Behavior Change & Communication pages for current funding opportunities.
