Grant Description

-Purpose. The ultimate goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), National Institutes of Health (NIH) is to solicit Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant applications that propose research on health promotion, disease prevention, and health disparities that is jointly conducted by communities and researchers and targets medically underserved areas (MUAs) and medically underserved populations (MUPs) as defined by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). -This FOA will use the R21 grant mechanism to encourage studies that specifically target medically underserved areas as well as underserved and underrepresented populations. This focus will allow studies to assess the nature and scope of health problems in underserved communities, formulate hypotheses about the relationship of community dynamics and health problems as they relate to underrepresented populations, design targeted interventions aimed at addressing health disparities in specified communities and specific populations, and track the efficacy of outreach efforts that result from CBPR research in the community. The FOA will ensure that the health issues of underserved communities and populations are addressed using CBPR research strategies. -Mechanism of Support. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PAR-08-075, that solicits applications under the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism.
