USDA Funding for 2012 SEBTC SNAP Model Demonstration Grant
Deadline: September 9
The 2010 Agriculture Appropriations Act (P.L. 111-80) provided authority and funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to demonstrate and rigorously evaluate methods of reducing or preventing food insecurity and hunger among children in the summer months. In response, the Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer for Children (SEBTC) demonstrations are testing a household-based method of delivering nutrition assistance to low-income children during the summer. There is no specific dollar ceiling set for start-up or operational costs for the demonstration projects. The costs set forth in state agency budgets for the project should be necessary and reasonable for operation of the demonstration project, and cover all participating entities.

Funding for Advancing HIV Prevention through Transformative Behavioral and Social Science Research (R01)
Deadline: January 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.
