The ARCC Resource Directory is an online website providing access to materials and resources to help interested community and faith-based organizations and academic partners to learn about how they can build capacity to conduct community-engaged research and support building, strengthening, and sustaining their partnership.

About ARCC

The Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities, founded in January 2008, is guided by a steering committee of community- and faith -based organizations from across the city, public agencies, and faculty at Northwestern University. ARCC supports community-engaged and community-based participatory research (CBPR) by providing seed grants, capacity-building workshops and one-on-one technical assistance, partnership facilitation, monthly information and resource updates, advocacy for supportive institutional policies, and other activities.
