NIH Funding for Pediatric Centers of Excellence in Nephrology (P50)
Deadline: Nov. 3
This funding opportunity invites new and renewal applications for the Pediatric Centers of Excellence in Nephrology to support both basic and clinical research on pediatric kidney disease. The emphases for this program are several-fold: (1) to continue to attract new scientific expertise into the study of the basic mechanisms of kidney diseases and disorders among infants, children, and adolescents; (2) to encourage multidisciplinary research focused on the causes of these diseases; 3) to explore new basic areas that may have clinical research application and 4) to design Developmental Research (DR)/Pilot and Feasibility (P&F) studies which should lead to new and innovative approaches to study kidney disease in the pediatric population, and the eventual submission of competitive investigator-initiated R01 research grant applications.

SAHM Funding for Local Public Health Demonstration Project Grants
Deadline: Nov. 15
The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM) is soliciting proposals for innovative local public health demonstration projects that will improve our understanding of adolescent vaccination and ultimately lead to interventions to increase vaccination rates in the adolescent population. SAHM intends to fund approximately 10 proposals, and the expected average award will be $150,000. A brief letter of intent is required, and should be submitted by Oct. 15. To learn more, visit here.

HRSA Grant Program for Rural Health Care Services Outreach
Deadline: Nov. 22
The Office of Rural Health Policy's Outreach Program supports projects that demonstrate effective models of outreach and service delivery through collaboration, adoption of an evidence-based or promising practice model, demonstration of health outcomes, replicability and sustainability. Proposed projects will have an outcomes-oriented approach that will enhance and sustain the delivery of effective health care in rural communities by tracking specific health indicators that will demonstrate the impact of their project at the end of their grant period. They will be based on evidence-based or promising practice models in order to avoid "reinventing the wheel" and demonstrate health status improvement in rural communities. To learn more, visit here.

NIH Basic/Clinical Research Funding for a Collaborative Initiative on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (CIFASD) (U01)
Deadline: Dec. 14
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) solicits Cooperative Agreement (U01) applications from current awardees and new applicants to continue the previously funded Collaborative Initiative on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (CIFASD), a multidisciplinary consortium of domestic and international projects. The CIFASD aims to accelerate specific areas of research related to the translation of new or improved capabilities in FASD clinical case recognition (through improved diagnosis, enhanced understanding of the domains of neurobehavioral impairment), interventions (behavior-based, nutritional and/or pharmacological) and prevention, by fostering collaboration and coordinating basic, clinical, and translational research.

Funding for Advancing HIV Prevention through Transformative Behavioral and Social Science Research (R01)
Deadline: Jan. 6, 2012
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages applications that will advance generalize knowledge about HIV prevention through transformative behavioral and social science research. An underlying assumption for this funding opportunity is that methods of and findings from social and behavioral studies can make essential contributions to research that utilizes biomedical modalities. In addition, biomedical perspectives are essential for the advancement of social and behavioral HIV research on HIV prevention. Therefore, this FOA invites studies that are comprehensive in the sense that the reciprocal influences of relevant variables, whether social, behavioral, or biomedical are included in study design and interpretation. This FOA is intended to address the goals of the National HIV AIDS Strategy, and therefore studies should address issues that are highly relevant to the domestic (i.e., United States) HIV problem.

NIH Funding on Interventions for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Native American Populations (R01)
Deadline: May 15, 2014
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to develop, adapt, and test the effectiveness of health promotion and disease prevention interventions in Native American (NA) populations. NA populations are exposed to considerable risk factors that significantly increase their likelihood of chronic disease, substance abuse, mental illness and HIV-infection. The intervention program should be culturally appropriate and promote the adoption of healthy lifestyles, improve behaviors and social conditions and/or improve environmental conditions related to chronic disease, the consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, mental illness or HIV-infection. The intervention program should be designed so that it could be sustained within the entire community within existing resources, and, if successful, disseminated in other Native American communities.
