Abstract

Ethical challenges discussed in this innovative Special Issue on community-based participatory research projects suggest that the funders of such projects may misunderstand the unique challenges imposed when a researcher and a community agency collaborate. This commentary conveys information about ways in which a funding agency can more clearly envision these specific challenges and facilitate collaborations through ethical grant mechanisms. Although other articles in the series have discussed the ethical challenges of the researcher, this article discusses the importance of the ethical stance of the funder in protecting both the academic and community stakeholders, so that sustainable, effective, community-based interventions succeed.
