Funding Areas

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) invites applications for this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to plan the development of effective interventions using community based participatory research (CBPR) approaches.  Support will be provided to develop and strengthen partnerships between researchers and health disparity communities to plan and pilot interventions for a disease or condition to reduce health disparities. Applicants of this FOA should submit an application proposing a three-year plan to develop and strengthen a partnership with a defined health disparity community and a plan for intervention research using the principles of CBPR. The three-year CBPR plan should include: community needs assessment, plans to identify the disease/condition for intervention research, and plans to develop the intervention methodology during the first year of the grant.  During the second and third year, a pilot intervention research study must be conducted.  The pilot should assess the feasibility/acceptability of the developed intervention as well of the process of conducting a CBPR intervention study, including collaborative oversight of data collection, sharing of interim data, and disseminating results to community stakeholders and scientific audiences. The project must include co-leadership by research and community partners, and all activities proposed in the application must include substantial input from the targeted community using CBPR principles.
