Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories institutions of higher education for research projects on inequities in healthcare. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to reduce health disparities and advance equity in healthcare.

This FOA requests research grant applications to support collaborative investigative teams or individual scientists who propose unusually innovative research projects, which, if successful, would have a major impact in developing, disseminating, or implementing innovative and effective interventions and/or strategies that prevent, reduce, or eliminate health disparities and inequities. This FOA supports the NIH-wide initiative UNITE, which is identifying short-term and long-term actions to address structural racism at NIH, the institutions NIH supports, and anywhere NIH research activities take place, with the goal of ending racial inequities across the biomedical research enterprise. Research addressing community-prioritized research questions, cross-cutting issues such as social determinants of health across sectors, multiple levels and systems that contribute to health disparities, and/or priority areas of multiple NIH Institutes and Centers are encouraged. Applicants may propose projects addressing any disease, condition, or health-related topic with demonstrated health disparities/inequities.

Although applicants will be able to propose their own ideas, NIH has a special interest in developing, understanding, and deploying interventions that address social determinants of health disparities. Although a formative observational component or stage may be necessary for some projects, each project is required to include an intervention component. Projects that include multilevel interventions are strongly encouraged. To be considered transformative, projects should reflect ideas substantially different from mainstream concepts and have a high potential to lead to major improvements in health through the development, implementation, or dissemination of highly innovative interventions to address health disparities and advance health equity. Innovative interventions could take many forms, including technology. Note that "innovation" can include development and testing of a novel intervention; new implementation and/or dissemination strategies for evidence-based interventions; and/or novel examination of program and policy interventions designed to address health disparities and advance health equity that provide innovative insight into their effectiveness.
