 Funding

Maternal and Child Health Research Program
Deadline: Dec. 5
The R40 MCH Research Program supports applied research relating to maternal and child health services, including services for children with special health care needs. Research should demonstrate a substantial contribution to advancement of the current knowledge pool, and when used in states and communities should result in health and health services improvements. Findings from the research supported by the MCH Research Program are expected to strengthen and expand ACA implementation. This includes research that drives policy and service delivery of preventive and early intervention services for application in health care delivery programs or develops new knowledge on the impact of insurance coverage on health promotion. Research proposals should address critical MCH questions such as public health systems and infrastructure, health disparities, quality of care, and promoting the health of MCH populations, which also support the goals of the Health Resources and Services Administration.

R40 Maternal and Child Health Research Program (SDAS)
Deadline: Dec. 5
The R40 MCH SDAS program supports applied research relating to maternal and child health services that utilizes exclusively the secondary analysis of existing national databases and/or administrative records. These projects should have the potential to improve health services and delivery of care for maternal and child health populations. Findings from the research supported by the MCH Research Program are expected to strengthen and expand Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation. This includes research that drives policy and service delivery of preventive and early intervention services for application in health care delivery programs or develops new knowledge on the impact of insurance coverage on health promotion.

NIH Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centers 
Deadline: Dec. 22
This National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant applications should propose to support a transdisciplinary program of basic and applied research to examine the effects of environmental factors on children's health and well-being. Research conducted through the Centers should include substantive areas of science in children's health while incorporating innovative technologies and approaches and links to the environment. Letters of intent are due 30 days before application due date. To learn more, click here.

William T. Grant Foundation Distinguished Fellows Grant
Deadline: Jan. 6, 2015
The Distinguished Fellows Grant awards up to $175,000 for a fellowship for mid-career policymakers, practitioners and researchers who are influential in their role and able to affect attitudes and practices of others working in similar roles and settings. The grant supports researchers seeking to work in policy or practice settings, or policymakers and practitioners seeking to work in research settings. To learn more, click here.

NIH Understanding Infancy and Early Childhood Factors That Influence Obesity
Deadline: Feb. 5, 2015
Institutions/organizations should propose to characterize or identify factors in early childhood that may increase or mitigate risk for weight gain and fill risk for development of obesity in children research gaps. Studies should propose research in young children and may also assess factors relevant to families of them. For more information, click here.

NIH Patient Safety in the Context of Perinatal, Neonatal and Pediatric Care
Deadlines: March 5, 2015 (R01) and March 16, 2015 (R21, R03)
A wide range of collaborative research projects related to patient safety in the context of perinatal, neonatal and pediatric care both in routine hospital settings and in the intensive care units related to: the epidemiology of various domains of medical errors and consequent patient harm; Assessing the factors at various levels that contribute to such errors; and Intervention strategies at individual, systems, and institutional levels to help reduce and eliminate medical errors is encouraged. Available funding includes Research Project (R01), Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant (R21), and Small Grant Program (R03).

NIH Pregnancy in Women with Disabilities
Deadline: March 5, 2015 (R01) and March 16, 2015 (R21)
Grant applications should propose to investigate the incidence, course, and outcomes of pregnancy among women with disabilities. Areas of interest also include studies to inform counseling and strategies for addressing barriers to prenatal care, and management of pregnancy, the puerperium, and the transition to parenthood in order to optimize outcomes for women with physical, intellectual and developmental, and/or sensory disabilities and their families. Letters of intent are due 30 days before application due dates. Available funding includes Research Project (R01) and Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant (R21).

NIH Studies in Neonatal and Pediatric Resuscitation
Deadlines: March 5, 2015 (R01) and March 16, 2015 (R21, R03)
Grant applications should propose to stimulate research on a wide range of topics related to neonatal and pediatric resuscitation. It is anticipated that the results from well-conducted studies will enable translation of knowledge into evidence-based resuscitation practices ensuring optimal short- and long-term outcomes for all newborn infants and children. Letters of intent are due 30 days before application due dates. Available funding includes Research Project (R01), Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant (R21), and Small Grant Program (R03).

NIH Initiative to Maximize Research Education in Genomics Diversity Action Plan
Deadline: Sept. 6, 2016
NIH present this funding opportunity to facilitate the training of individuals at all careers levels (the undergraduate, graduate, post baccalaureate, postdoctoral and faculty levels) from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in scientific disciplines relevant to genomics to enable them to pursue genomics research that spans all areas of interest to National Human Genome Research Institute later in their careers.
