U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) – Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Program

The DOT announced the opportunity for state and local stakeholders to apply for $500 million in discretionary grant funding through the TIGER program. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 allows for $500 million to be awarded by the DOT for National Infrastructure Investments. This appropriation stems from the program funded and implemented pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, known as the TIGER Discretionary Grants program. Because of the program's similarity in structure and widespread name recognition, DOT will continue to refer to the program as 'TIGER Discretionary Grants. Funds for the FY 2017 TIGER program are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area or a region. To provide technical assistance to a broad array of stakeholders, DOT is hosting a series of webinars during the grant application process. Webinars on How to Compete for TIGER Discretionary Grants will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 13 and Tuesday, September 19. To register, please visit the TIGER Webinar Series webpage. Additional webinars will be scheduled and more information posted online. All applications are due by October 16, 2017. For more information, please visit the Notice of Funding Opportunity via the Department of Transportation.

 

U.S. Department of Defense ( DOD), U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA) – DOD Orthotics and Prosthetics Outcomes Research Award (OPORA)

The OPORA challenges the scientific community to address which orthotic and prosthetic devices generate the best patient outcomes. Outcomes-focused research is used to support evidence-based practice that guides providers in the optimization of care to service members and veterans with limb loss and/or limb impairment. It is expected that any research findings also will provide benefit to the general population. Applications involving multidisciplinary collaborations among academia, industry, the military Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other federal agencies are highly encouraged. The OPORA is intended to support research that evaluates the comparative effectiveness of orthotic and prosthetic devices using patient-centric outcomes for service members and veterans who have undergone limb amputation. The OPORA is focused on outcomes-based best practices through analysis of the merits of prosthetic and orthotic device options currently available, not on the development of new, or the improvement of existing, technology. The intent of the award is to generate clinically useful evidence that will enhance and optimize patient outcomes. The OPORA offers funding for two levels. The following are generalized descriptions of the scope of research appropriate for each level: 1) new investigators who may support pilot research without preliminary data or research that is already supported by preliminary data and have the potential to make significant advancements toward clinical translation, and 2) research that is supported by preliminary data and has the potential to make significant advancements toward clinical translation. All applications are due by January 18, 2018. For more information, please visit the Funding Opportunity Announcement via Grants.gov.

 

U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) – Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Learning Health Systems (LHS) Mentored Career Development Program

The AHRQ, in partnership with the PCORI, invites applications for funding to support institutional career development awards designed to train clinician and research scientists to conduct PCOR research within LHS focused on generation, adoption, and application of evidence to improve the quality and safety of care. Eligible applicants include public and state-controlled institutions of higher education, private institutions of higher education, Alaska Native and native Hawaiian Serving Institutions, Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AANAPISISs), Hispanic-serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), non-domestic (non-U.S.) entities (Foreign Institutions) are not eligible to apply. Non-domestic (non-U.S.) components of U.S. Organizations are not eligible to apply.All applications are due by January 29, 2018. For more information, please visit the Funding Opportunity Announcement via Grants.gov.

 

DOD, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) – Crane: Time-Varying Nuclear Decay Parameters

Though the mechanisms for the observed time dependence in nuclear decay parameters are not well understood, the importance of this work is twofold: 1) the ability to account for noise sources associated with microelectronics in radiation environments, and 2) the exploration of new physical mechanisms that could lead to new detection technologies with significant impacts to DOD applications. Crane is interested in funding research to explore the existence of physical mechanisms of nuclear decay modulation. All applications are due by October 6, 2017. For more information, please visit the Funding Opportunity Announcement via Grants.gov.

 

DOD, USAMRAA – Psychological Health/Traumatic Brain Injury Research Program, Complex Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Research Clinical Research Award (PH/TBIRP CTRR–CRA)

The PH/TBIRP CTRR–CRA supports applied and translational research to advance the development of knowledge and materiel products for rehabilitation and restoration of function following TBI. Applicants should explain how their work will inform the development, refinement and/or revision of existing standards of care, clinical recommendations or guidelines. TBI is defined as being caused by 1) a direct blow or impact to the head, 2) a penetrating head injury or 3) an exposure to external forces such as blast waves that disrupt the function of the brain. Not all blows to the head or exposure to external forces result in a TBI. The PH/TBIRP CTRR–CRA supports clinical research but not clinical trials. Supported research can include observational research studies. The overarching goals of this award are to address TBI-related impairments and deficits including sensory, sensorimotor and cognitive dysfunction to 1) develop and validate rehabilitation outcome measures, 2) define and evaluate mechanisms of injury progression or recovery associated with rehabilitation interventions, and 3) improve clinician-driven assessment strategies to guide return-to-duty decision making. All applications are due by December 27, 2017. For more information, please visit the Funding Opportunity Announcement via Grants.gov.

 

DOD, USAMRAA – Psychological Health/ Traumatic Brain Injury Research Program, Complex Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Research Clinical Trial Award (PH/TBIRP CTRR–CTA)

The PH/TBIRP CTRR–CTA supports clinical trials to advance the development of knowledge and materiel products for rehabilitation and restoration of function following TBI in service members, veterans, and other individuals with TBI. Applicants should explain how their work will inform the development, refinement and/or revision of existing standards of care, clinical recommendations or guidelines. Clinical trials with alternative study designs such as pragmatic or practice-based trials will be considered in this category. TBI is defined as being caused by 1) a direct blow or impact to the head, 2) a penetrating head injury or 3) an exposure to external forces such as blast waves that disrupt the function of the brain. Not all blows to the head or exposure to external forces result in a TBI. All applications are due by December 27, 2017. For more information, please visit the Funding Opportunity Announcement via Grants.gov.

 

HHS, National Institutes of Health (NIH) – Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS): Basic Mechanisms of Health Effects
