Community Participation in Research (R01) – Deadline: June 5, 2009

This Funding Opportunity Announcement solicits grant applications that propose intervention research on health promotion, disease prevention, and health disparities that communities and researchers jointly conduct. For the purposes of this FOA, intervention research is quasi-experimental research projects that seek to influence preventive behaviors, treatment adherences, complementary behaviors, and related attitudes and beliefs.  Natural experiments also may fall under the interventions rubric.  Examples include, and are not limited to promotion of physical activity friendly neighborhoods; tobacco, alcohol and drug abuse prevention among youth; a community-led action plan for cancer, hypertension and cardiovascular disease prevention and control in minority populations; establishing safer work practices among agricultural workers in rural areas; nutrition and reducing childhood obesity; HIV/AIDS and STD prevalence among young adults; promoting infant mental health; and reducing health disparities.  For more information, visit:
