CPF Provides The Following Grants and Grant Opportunities

The grant application and grant proposal process of the Community Pharmacy Foundation is a very easy one with very few stipulations, other than it must be associated or involved with Community Pharmacy Practice. It is a process that is open year round, virtually without limitation as to the nature of grant requests that are considered. The CPF grant process is detailed in the next section along with some frequently asked questions that will assist you... your grant application is invited and welcomed -

The Community Pharmacy Foundation is interested in soliciting research projects and demonstration projects that highlight new and emerging innovations in patient care. Submissions should include a compensation model for the care delivered.

Understanding the CPF Grant Process


Learn about the Life Cycle of a CPF Grant. The grant process involves submitting an online Grant Application, and if approved by the Board a more detailed Grant Proposal is requested according to the criteria that would be outlined to you in a special memo. If your Grant Proposal is approved by the Board, you would receive a Grant Agreement to engage and would communicate with the CPF Grants Administrator who will monitor your progress and authorize issuance of grant dollars for the Foundation’s financial office. Explore each stage of the CPF Grant LifeCycle to improve your understanding of the process and what is expected of applicants in this sections –

FOCUS Grants

To date, CPF has categorized those Grant Awards as “Focus Grants” which greatly exceed its average allocation. Accordingly these Grant Awards can have more significant and/or immediate impact on everyday pharmacy practice. The two Focus Grants to date that were classified this way were associated with applications from the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) and the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA). One focused on the then new requirements associated with “HIPAA” (year) and the other on a major “Cost of Dispensing Study” conducted by a major, national accounting firm (year).

Three other CPF Focus Grants to date (2009) have been directly associated with MtM services:

1. Iowa Pharmacy Association, Farm Bureau of Iowa and Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Iowa operating as Welmark
2. Michigan College of Pharmacy and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
3. Wisconsin Pharmacy Alliance and several major state health plans

Incentive Grants

Via partnership with the American Pharmacists Association Foundation, CPF provides matching grant support to fund 14 incentive grants tartgeted towards community pharmacy. Visit the APhA Foundation website for more information and to submit an application. Applications for the upcoming academic calendar year are generally accepted in the late summer early fall.

Grant Assistance Information


The Community Pharmacy Foundation is developing a special Grant Assistance section of its Website to assist first-timers … in preparing a grant request. As you would expect it does require the applicant to have an idea for a special community pharmacy practice idea they wish to implement in their pharmacy or a faculty member to associated with a community pharmacy to implement a new special service or conduct a study of relevance to the entire “community” of pharmacy.

Watch for future developments by periodically visiting this section of the CPF Website.
