Notice of Intent to Publish (NOTIP): Understanding and Addressing the Impact of Structural Racism and Discrimination on Minority Health and Health Disparities (R01 – Clinical Trial Optional).

These future Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) plan to solicit applications on:

  • Observational research to understand the role of structural racism and discrimination (SRD) in causing and sustaining health disparities
    • Observational Studies: Research may (1) examine the impact of SRD on health, and/or (2) evaluate the impact that existing efforts to address SRD (e.g., laws, policies, programs, organizational practices and procedures) have on the health of individuals, families, and communities. Projects may involve collection of primary data/and or analysis of existing data and may involve quantitative or mixed methods approaches. Projects must be exclusively domestic, including U.S. territories.
  • Intervention research that addresses SRD in order to improve minority health or reduce health disparities.
    • Intervention Studies: Research may focus on health promotion, treatment, and/or prevention. Interventions may focus primarily on addressing SRD to improve health outcomes, or SRD may be included as one of several determinants of health addressed to improve health outcomes. For both types of intervention approaches, interventions must directly address the cause or source of SRD, not just help individuals or populations to cope with SRD.

The FOA is expected to be published in April 2021 with an expected application due date in August 2021.

This FOA will utilize the R01 activity code; R01 – Clinical Trial Optional.
