DHHS-NIH: NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities
Deadline: 22 October 2018
The United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) is currently seeking proposals for program entitled “NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities”.
This program solicits resource grant applications for projects that will bring useful, usable health information to health disparity populations and their health care providers. Access to useful, usable, understandable health information is an important factor when making health decisions.
The NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities program is focused on putting research knowledge into practice by providing information resources tailored to meet the needs of health disparity populations and their health care providers. Many factors influence use of information in health decisions, including physical access factors (such as availability of libraries or Internet connectivity in the context of a health visit or personal health decision), personal access factors (such as readability, understandability and presentation format of health information), and factors related to social determinants of health.
Topics that are responsive to this grant program include, but are not limited to:
- Developing or upgrading health information resources/services to meet the needs of health disparity populations.
- Providing health information resources/services to community organizations involved with health disparity populations.
- Developing information strategies to facilitate implementing patient centered care and precision medicine within a health disparity population.
- Developing information resources that will enable persons with health disparities to make informed consent decisions regarding research participation.
- Needs assessment studies that identify the types and forms of information needed by health disparity populations to assist them in making health-related decisions.
- Evaluation studies of existing information resources or services targeted at health disparity populations.
Budgets up to $150,000 for one year, $300,000 over two years or $450,000 over 3 years, in direct costs, may be requested.
