The purpose of this program is to enhance support to family members of patients with a suspected or diagnosed case of human prion disease as well as enhance support for national surveillance for CJD and its emerging variants by (1) providing family members of such patients with easy access to consultations with persons experienced and knowledgeable about practical issues related to this disease, 2) facilitating educational and other mutually beneficial interaction of researchers with family members of CJD patients (3) increasing general awareness about CJD and (4) increasing the number of autopsies of suspected CJD cases. This funding opportunity was announced on June 17, 2015. The application deadline is August 14, 2015. For more information, please visit the CDC’s Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

HRSA: Service Area Competition

Funding Opportunity Number: HRSA-16-003

The Health Center Program supports patient-directed public and private nonprofit organizations that provide primary and preventive health care services to the Nation’s medically underserved.  The purpose of the SAC funding opportunity is to ensure continued access to comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services for communities and vulnerable populations served by the Health Center Program. This FOA details the SAC eligibility requirements, review criteria, and awarding factors for organizations seeking an award for operational support to provide primary and preventive health care services to an announced service area under the Health Center Program. This funding opportunity was announced June 16, 2015. The application deadline is August 18, 2015. For more information, please visit HRSA’s Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

PCORI: Patient-Powered Research Networks (PPRN) Research Demonstration Projects

Patient-powered research networks (PPRNs) were funded by PCORI with the intent of supporting communities or networks of patients motivated to participate in clinical research through the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet) and to develop their capacity to govern the research activities of their networks. There are three objectives: (1) Relevance: Answer important patient-identified research questions generated by the PPRN community that remain unanswered due to insufficient or inconclusive evidence. (2) Collaboration: Use, develop, and contribute to PCORnet’s shared tools and resources (the PCORnet Commons) to accelerate the conduct of research using PCORnet through collaborations with other PPRNs. (3) Evaluation: Evaluate the contribution and impact of the project to and on the development of the PCORnet Commons and on PCORnet’s capacity to support an increasing volume of future research. This funding opportunity was announced on May 26, 2015. A Letter of Intent is due by July 31, 2015. The application deadline is September 30, 2015. For more information, please visit PCORI’s Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

NIH Funding Opportunity Announcements:

 

NIH: Strategies to Increase Delivery of Guideline-Based Care to Populations with Health Disparities (R01)

Funding Opportunity Number: PAR-15-279

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to conduct innovative and feasible studies to test strategies to accelerate the adoption of guideline-based recommendations into clinical practice among populations with health disparities. Applications that propose strategies with a focus on providers who care for clinical populations with excess burden of cardiovascular, lung, blood, and sleep diseases and disorders, in concert with the health care delivery systems in which they practice, are strongly encouraged. Applications that test systems, infrastructures, and strategies to implement guideline-based care for NHLBI disorders in clinical care settings are also of high programmatic interest. This funding opportunity was announced on June 18, 2015. A letter of intent is due September 21, 2015. The application deadline is October 21, 2015.
