NIMHD Supports Supplements to Evaluate Interventions to Reduce COVID-19’s Impact on Health Disparity Populations

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the physical health of thousands of people in the United States and is also expected to have significant psychosocial, behavioral, and socioeconomic impacts on health. These impacts disproportionately affect health disparity and other vulnerable populations.

NIMHD is supporting supplements to existing NIMHD grants to test community interventions focused on preventing or slowing COVID-19 transmission, evaluate local and state policies and programs intended to mitigate COVID-19 exposure and improve adherence, and reduce the negative impacts on the health of vulnerable groups and populations who experience health disparities. Projects may evaluate existing or ongoing community-based programs or policies or prospectively test new or adapted interventions.

NIMHD encourages grantees to participate in this important public health activity and welcomes inquiries about this funding opportunity. Review the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for more information on eligibility and application submissions.

Open date (earliest submissions): June 10, 2020

Application due date: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis from June 10, 2020 through December 15, 2020 by 5:00 PM local time of the applicant organization.
