FOA Purpose

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) announces the availability of funds for environmental health disparities research projects in U.S. communities.  This perspective includes the social, psychosocial, economic, physical, chemical and biological determinants that may contribute to disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental impacts on the various populations in the U.S.

The overall goals of the announcement are to:

1.  Provide funding for NIMHD Centers of Excellence to conduct multidisciplinary collaborative projects that address environmental health disparities research relevant to addressing the complex interactions between social, natural and built environment systems and policies that may impact the health status of health disparity populations.

2.  Broaden and strengthen the scope or research focus of the NIMHD Centers of Excellence to include an environmental health disparities research core.

3.  Leverage the diverse and complementary NIMHD Centers of Excellence resources and infrastructure to support and generate innovative approaches to alleviate environmentally driven health disparities and improve access to healthy environments.

Revision applications from active Exploratory NIMHD Centers of Excellence (P20) involving trans-disciplinary research partnerships are encouraged. The research must support expansion of the scope of existing research already approved under the NIMHD parent grant. Applicants are encouraged to propose research that would maximize the likelihood of sustainability of the research projects beyond the funding period.

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

The purpose of this FOA is to solicit competitive revision applications from eligible NIMHD Exploratory Centers of Excellence (P20) grantees for research projects in social and environmental determinants of health to reduce health disparities in health disparity populations. A key objective is to support research projects that would integrate and elucidate the complex interactions of environmental, social, behavioral, biological factors and policies as they relate to health disparities.

Research projects should address environmental health disparities research relevant to addressing the complex interactions between social, natural and built environment systems and policies that may impact the health status of health disparity population groups. A principal objective of this research is to generate innovative approaches to alleviate environmentally driven health disparities and improve access to healthy environments.

Revision applications involving transdisciplinary research partnerships are encouraged.

The research must support expansion of the scope of existing research already approved under the NIMHD parent grant. Applicants are encouraged to propose research that would maximize the likelihood of sustainability beyond the funding period.

Specific Areas of Research Interest

Environmental health disparities research includes the broad social, psychosocial, economic, physical, chemical and biological determinants that may contribute to disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental impacts among populations. A growing body of evidence suggests that environment factors (e.g. pollution, environmental toxicants, natural disasters and built environments) and social factors (e.g. socioeconomic status, education, psychosocial stress, access to health care, residential and community settings) contribute to adverse health conditions.

 Revisions support new or additional activities not identified in the current award, and that reflect an expansion of the scope of the parent grant-approved activities.  Specifically, funds will support, but not limited to the following example research areas and related activities:

1.  Evaluate social, natural, physical and built environmental factors that are impacting a particular health condition/disease that the Center of Excellence is already investigating.

2.  Assess social environmental determinants (e.g. food supply-access to grocery stores with health foods, built environment, exposure to environmental toxicants, socio-economic characteristics) of communities served by the Center of Excellence.

3.  Develop innovative data capturing projects to implement data linkages between community health information and social and environmental determinants of health.

4.  Develop innovative intervention projects to address social and environmental justice in partnership with the community.

5.  Develop innovative approaches to data linkages and data sharing among the Center of Excellence related to population-based studies.

6.  Develop research projects that evaluate the interaction between land use planning, transportations systems, and related policies that impact on community health and population health.

7.  Incorporate natural, physical and built environmental factors into existing intervention studies.

8.  Explore the role of social and environmental determinants of health in understudied health disparity populations and communities.

9.  Develop innovative evaluation projects to link Healthy People 2020 goals in environmental health to efforts of the Center of Excellence to eliminate health disparities.

10.  Integration of an Environmental Core as a new core that focuses on environmental health disparities research.

Section V. Application Review Information

1. Criteria

Only the review criteria described below will be considered in the review process. As part of the NIH mission, all applications submitted to the NIH in support of biomedical and behavioral research are evaluated for scientific and technical merit through the NIH peer review system.

Overall Impact

Reviewers will provide an overall impact/priority score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria (as applicable for the project proposed).

Scored Review Criteria

Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria below in the determination of scientific merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.

Significance

Does the project address an important problem or a critical barrier to progress in the field? If the aims of the project are achieved, how will scientific knowledge, technical capability, and/or clinical practice be improved? How will successful completion of the aims change the concepts, methods, technologies, treatments, services, or preventative interventions that drive this field?   

Investigator(s)

Are the PD/PIs, collaborators, and other researchers well suited to the project? If Early Stage Investigators or New Investigators, or in the early stages of independent careers, do they have appropriate experience and training? If established, have they demonstrated an ongoing record of accomplishments that have advanced their field(s)? If the project is collaborative or multi-PD/PI, do the investigators have complementary and integrated expertise; are their leadership approach, governance and organizational structure appropriate for the project?  

Innovation

Does the application challenge and seek to shift current research or clinical practice paradigms by utilizing novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions? Are the concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions novel to one field of research or novel in a broad sense? Is a refinement, improvement, or new application of theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions proposed?   

Approach

Are the overall strategy, methodology, and analyses well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the specific aims of the project? Are potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success presented? If the project is in the early stages of development, will the strategy establish feasibility and will particularly risky aspects be managed? 

If the project involves clinical research, are the plans for 1) protection of human subjects from research risks, and 2) inclusion of minorities and members of both sexes/genders, as well as the inclusion of children, justified in terms of the scientific goals and research strategy proposed?   

Environment

Will the scientific environment in which the work will be done contribute to the probability of success? Are the institutional support, equipment and other physical resources available to the investigators adequate for the project proposed? Will the project benefit from unique features of the scientific environment, subject populations, or collaborative arrangements?      

Additional Review Criteria

As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will evaluate the following additional items while determining scientific and technical merit, and in providing an overall impact/priority score, but will not give separate scores for these items.
