September 2019 U.S. Federal Funding Opportunities

U.S. Federal Funding Opportunities (FFO) is a monthly resource that summarizes awards, grants, and fellowship opportunities issued by the U.S. government related to research, evaluation and dissemination. These funding opportunities are relevant to the field of child development and, more broadly, behavioral and social science research.

Highlights -

The September 2019 FFO lists over 100 funding opportunities for research, evaluation, and dissemination, including four highlighted funding opportunities.

(1) NIH: Research on Biopsychosocial Factors of Social Connectedness and Isolation on Health, Wellbeing, Illness, and Recovery. A funding opportunity that invites research projects that seek to explain the underlying mechanisms, processes, and trajectories of social relationships and how these factors affect outcomes in human health, illness, recovery, and overall well-being. Applications are due by March 17, 2020.

(2) NICHD: Data Sharing for Demographic Research Infrastructure Program. A funding opportunity to increase the impact of NICHD-funded research within the scientific mission of the NICHD Population Dynamics Branch (PDB) by providing research infrastructure to: promote data sharing; support the development of procedures and technologies for data sharing; disseminate best practices in data sharing; provide a resource that catalogs NICHD-funded data available for secondary analysis; and promote the secondary analysis of data collected through NICHD grants to research teams outside the original grantees. Applications are due by November 29, 2019.

(3) NIH: Using Archived Data and Specimen Collections to Advance Maternal and Pediatric HIV/AIDS Research. A funding opportunity aims to address the needs of the maternal and pediatric HIV scientific community for research data translation and sharing. This initiative will support secondary data analyses using archived HIV/AIDS data and specimens to generate new research questions and findings relevant to the scientific mission and priorities of the NICHD, Maternal and Pediatric Infectious Disease Branch (MPIDB) and Office of AIDS Research (OAR). Applications are due by November 1, 2019.

(4) NIH: Limited Competition: Specialized Centers of Excellence on Environmental Health Disparities Research. A funding opportunity to support multidisciplinary research, research capacity building, and community-engaged research activities focused on understanding and reducing or eliminating environmental health disparities, defined as inequities in population health mediated by disproportionate adverse exposures associated with the physical, chemical, social and built environments. Applications are due by November 22, 2019.
