Do you have a great idea to advance health literacy and advance health equity in your community? Bring your great idea to life by applying for one of the NNLM PNR All of Us Community Engagement Awards! We’re delighted to offer 3 Community Engagement Awards, each up to $100,000. Please note: award applications for any amount up to $100,000 will be considered.
The goals of the Community Outreach Awards are to foster awareness of the NIH All of Us Research Program and promote health literacy and health equity through:
Creative approaches to meeting the health literacy needs through community engagement are encouraged. Consider focusing on any topics that support the aims of NIH All of Us Research Program, such as how biology, environment or lifestyle influence health.
The period of performance for these awards is: May 1, 2019 – April 30, 2020. Please note: awarded projects may request an extension through December 2020 to complete activities.
Priority for awards will be given to public libraries, or to organizations with an established public library partner carrying a significant role in the project.
Eligible applicants must be from institutions that are members of the NNLM PNR; if you don’t have a membership, membership is free and open to institutions interested in improving equitable access to health information. To apply for membership, submit an online membership application. NNLM PNR members who have not previously received NNLM funding or have only received funding once before are encouraged to apply.
