CDC and NIH Funding Opportunities

  • Community-Based Partnerships for Childhood Obesity Prevention and Control: Research to Inform Policy (R03)
    (PA-09-140)
    National Cancer Institute (NCI)
    Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)
    Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR)
    National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, CDC

    The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to enhance childhood obesity research by fostering the formation of local, state, or regional teams consisting of researchers, policymakers, and other relevant stakeholders (e.g., community representatives, public health practitioners or officials, educators) in order to identify research questions and hypotheses, design and implement the relevant research, and translate the research into evidence relevant to potential policy efforts in this area. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 is intended to support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-09-141, that encourages applications under the NIH Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21).

    Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR)
    National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, CDC

    This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to: (1) conduct evaluation research on obesity-related “natural experiments” (defined here as community and other population-level public policy interventions that may affect diet and physical activity behavior), and/or (2) develop and/or validate relevant community-level measures (instruments and methodologies to assess the food and physical activity environments at the community level). The overarching goal of this FOA is to inform public policy and research relevant to (1) diet and physical activity behavior, and (2) weight and health outcomes of Americans. This FOA will utilize the research project (R01) grant mechanism, and runs in parallel with two other FOAs of identical scientific scope, PA-10-028 and PA-10-029 that encourage applications under the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) and NIH Small Research (R03) grant mechanisms.

The R21 grant mechanism is intended to encourage exploratory/developmental research by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of project development. This FOA will utilize the exploratory/developmental (R21) grant mechanism, and runs in parallel with two other FOAs of identical scientific scope, PA-10-027 and PA-10-029 that encourage applications under the NIH research project (R01) and NIH Small Grant (R03) grant mechanisms.

  • School Nutrition and Physical Activity Policies, Obesogenic Behaviors and Weight Outcomes (R01)
    (PA-10-052)
    National Cancer Institute (NCI)
    National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
    Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)
    Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR)
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

    Grant applications are encouraged that propose to: (1) Foster multidisciplinary research that will evaluate how policies (federal, state and school district levels) can influence school physical activity and nutrition environments, youths’ obesogenic behaviors (e.g., nutrition and physical activity behaviors), and weight outcomes; (2) Understand how schools are implementing these policies and examine multi-level influences on adoption and implementation at various levels (e.g. federal, state, school district, and school); and (3) understand the synergistic or counteractive effect of school nutrition and physical activity polices on the home and community environment and body weight.

    The funding opportunities described here are related, but separate to other recently announced program announcements: Obesity Policy Research: Evaluation and Measures (R01: PA-10-027; R21: PA-10-028; R03: PA-10-029). As a general guide, if the focus of a grant proposal is on evaluation research of obesity-related policies outside the school environment, and/or development/validation of community-level measures, the Obesity Policy Research: Evaluation and Measures funding opportunities may be the most appropriate. If a grant proposal focuses on children in the context of home/family, schools and/or macro policy environments, the School Nutrition and Physical Activity Policies, Obesogenic Behaviors and Weight Outcomes may be the most appropriate funding opportunity to which researchers should apply.
