NIMHD Supports Grantees with Community Collaborations to Study COVID-19 Testing Disparities

Through its Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics for Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) initiative, NIH aims to understand the factors that lead to COVID-19–related health disparities so that effective interventions can be implemented. As part of this initiative, NIMHD is supporting 2-year community-engaged Testing Research Projects. These projects will examine SARS-CoV-2 infection patterns and efforts to increase access and effectiveness of testing among underserved populations.

This Testing Research Project funding opportunity will supplement relevant active research grants and cooperative agreements with community collaborations or partnerships to support COVID-19 testing among underserved and/or vulnerable populations.

NIMHD encourages investigators 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.
