Funding or Award Criteria

The goal of this FOA is to support community-based participatory research (CBPR) in planning, implementing, evaluating and disseminating effective interventions for a disease or condition to reduce and eventually eliminate health disparities through partnerships between racial/ethnic minority populations, subpopulations, and other health disparity populations and research investigators. This FOA invites applications using the NIH research-related research projects (R24) award mechanism.

CBPR is defined as scientifically inquiry conducted in communities and in partnership with researchers. The process of scientific inquiry is such that community members, persons affected by the health condition, disability or issue under study, or other key stakeholders involved in the community’s health have the opportunity to be full participants in each phase of the work (from conception – design – conduct – analysis – interpretation – conclusions – communication of results). CBPR is characterized by substantial community input in the development of the grant application (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/translat/cbpr/cbpr.htm).
