NLM Funding Opportunity: Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities

Posted by on October 3rd, 2018 Posted in: Announcements, Funding, Health Disparities, NLM Resources, Public Health


The NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities funding program is focused on putting research knowledge into practice by providing information resources tailored to meet the needs of health disparity populations and their health care providers. A project can develop and deploy a new information resource or service, or expand and improve an existing resource or service in order to meet the needs of a health disparity population. For a proposed project to be competitive there must be evidence that the intended audience is a health disparity population and/or their healthcare providers. The application deadline is October 22, 2018, by 5:00 PM local time of the applicant organization.

This program is focused on the second goal in the NLM Strategic Plan 2017-2027, “To reach more people in more ways through enhanced dissemination and engagement pathways.” Accomplishing this goal involves understanding and meeting the needs of the stakeholders: scholarly, clinical and community. NLM intends to commit $750,000 in FY 2019 to fund up to five awards. Budgets up to $150,000 for one year, $300,000 over two years or $450,000 over 3 years, in direct costs, may be requested. Applicants may request up to three years for the project period.
