Purpose. The NIH has received new funds for Fiscal Years (FYs) 2009 and 2010 as part of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act or ARRA). This is one of a number of NIH initiatives supported by that Recovery Act funding. This NIH Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD), NIH, invites grant applications from eligible institutions/organizations that propose to establish an Exploratory NCMHD Center of Excellence (COE). NCMHD COE awards provide funding for hiring staff, researchers, community members, and trainees with the goal of augmenting and expanding the capacity and infrastructure of the institution and community to engage in research improving the health of nation and for preparing the next generation of researchers. Activities should be proposed that will benefit from significant 2-year funds without the expectation of continued NIH funding beyond two years. The activities supported by these NCMHD COE grants should have high short-term impact, and a high likelihood of enabling growth and investment in biomedical research and development, public health, and health care delivery. Applications are invited from institutions seeking support to 1) establish novel partnerships for community engagement/outreach efforts to eliminate health disparities, 2) establish new or enhance current research training infrastructure and capacity, including pipeline training programs, to prepare future biomedical, biobehavioral, and clinical researchers from minority, rural or low social and low economic status populations, and 3) to hire newly-recruited faculty to develop a research project within the context of the NCMHD Centers of Excellence program. To be eligible for the COE in this FOA, applicant institutions are expected to have existing federal research support and/or research infrastructure as reflected in a level of NIH institutional funding of less than $80 million for the year 2008.Mandatory Cores: Each NCMHD Exploratory COE (P20) must contain two cores: a mandatory Administrative Core, and one additional core selected from the following: Community Engagement/Outreach Core or Research Training/Education Core or a Research Core. If a Research Core is proposed, a single research project must be proposed. NCMHD will only support a single research project.
