The Health Resources and Services Administration (HHS) seeks applications for two of its maternal and child health programs (CFDA Number: 93.110).
Deadline: Aug. 19.
The MCH Secondary Data Analysis Research (SDAR) competition (http://goo.gl/8glo7Q) offers $1 million for 10 awards, no match required. The MCH Field-Initiated Innovative Research Studies (FIRST) program (http://goo.gl/hP5fMP) will distribute $1.8 million for six awards, no match required.
Universities and nonprofits can apply.
The research findings from these programs should be generalizable and of regional or national significance. The SDAR program supports research that exclusively conducts secondary analysis of existing national databases and administrative records. These projects should have the potential to improve health services and delivery of care for maternal and child health populations.
The FIRST program supports research on critical issues affecting maternal and child health, including services for children with special health care needs. The program is specifically designed to promote innovation in the field by supporting the exploration of new ideas and the development of new interventions.
