Prevention Research Centers (PRC) are academic research institutions funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to work with vulnerable communities on new ways to promote health and prevent disease. Each PRC receives funding to complete an applied, community-engaged research project. PRCs are also eligible to receive additional funding for Special Interest Projects, which fill a gap in the evidence-base.
