Subject: NIMHD Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Initiative in Reducing and Eliminating Health Disparaties Planning Phase (R24)
Nominations are due at the Graduate School on Friday, May 11; Deadline for internal competition is TBD.
The NIMHD Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Initiative was designed to support community-based participatory research in planning, implementing, evaluating and disseminating effective interventions for diseases disproportionately affecting racial and ethnic minority populations, populations with low socioeconomic status, and medically underserved populations living in rural areas in the U.S. The NIMHD CBPR Initiative has three phases: Planning, Intervention, and Dissemination. The initial phase, the CBPR planning phase, is a three-year grant followed by a competitive five-year intervention grant, and concludes with a competitive three-year dissemination grant. Subsequent grant awards will be based on scientific merit, progress, quality of the research proposal, and availability of funds. In 2005, NIMHD (then NCMHD) invited applications for the very first CBPR planning phase (RFA-MD-05-002).
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.
Specific Areas of Research Interest
Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to those listed below:
- Interventions to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors (e.g., physical activity, healthy diets) to prevent or reduce overweight/obesity and obesity-related complications (e.g., cardiovascular diseases, diabetes)
- Interventions to promote the management of diseases and conditions, such as asthma, hypertension, and diabetes
- Interventions focusing on the prevention or cessation of tobacco use and substance abuse
- Interventions that promote healthy sexual behaviors that prevent or reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS and other sexually-transmitted infections
- Interventions preventing or reducing intentional (e.g., suicide) or unintentional accidents
- Interventions to promote preventive behaviors (e.g., vaccinations, health screenings) that lead to the early detection or prevention of diseases/conditions such as colon cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, influenza and other vaccine-preventable diseases
Budgets are limited to $250,000 in direct costs per year. F&A costs requested by consortium participations are not included in the direct cost limitation.
The number of proposals UW–Madison may submit is limited to one.
