The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) is announcing the availability of funds under the Minority Research Grant Program to test promising solutions that close gaps in disparities research.
The purpose of the Grant Program is to support researchers
investigating systems-level solutions to social determinants of health issues that affect patient experiences and readmissions and ultimately health outcomes.
The Grant Program will provide two grant opportunities to support researchers at 1) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), 2) Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), 3) Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs), or 4) Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs).
It combines two previously available funding opportunities for Hispanic health researchers and HBCUs under one grant program and expands eligibility to include AANAPISIs and TCUs.
Through this one funding opportunity, the Minority Research Grant Program will make two awards to two different institutions from among these four types of eligible institutions (HBCU, TCU, HSI, or AANAPISI).
