Research Grants for the Primary or Secondary Prevention of Opioid Overdose (R01) (RFA-CE-18-006)

Description: The awards pursuant to this Notice of Funding Opportunity are contingent upon the availability of funds. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help expand and advance our understanding about what works to prevent overdose from prescription and illicit opioids by developing and piloting, or rigorously evaluating novel primary or secondary prevention interventions. The intent of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to: (1) build the scientific base for the primary or secondary prevention of opioid overdose, and (2) encourage collaboration of scientists from a spectrum of disciplines including public health, epidemiology, law enforcement, social work, economics, and criminal justice to perform research that can identify ways to prevent opioid overdose more effectively. Interventions can be strategies, programs, or policies. Ultimately, this research is intended to improve state and local health departments’ ability to implement and improve interventions focused on preventing opioid-related deaths. Researchers are expected to develop and pilot, or rigorously evaluate novel primary or secondary prevention interventions that address prescription or illicit opioid overdose. Primary prevention approaches are expected to aim to prevent opioid misuse, abuse, and overdose before it occurs. Secondary prevention approaches are expected to focus on the more immediate responses to opioid overdose, such as emergency department services and linkage to treatment immediately following a nonfatal overdose. Clinical examinations of the treatment effectiveness for opioid use disorder are outside the scope of the objectives and will not be considered (e.g., studies that solely test the effectiveness of buprenorphine, methadone, or naltrexone). It is anticipated that funded applicants will collaborate and partner with community and/or governmental organizations from multiple sectors (e.g., health, social services, law enforcement, criminal justice) that can provide access to populations at highest risk for opioid misuse and overdose and provide access to critical data systems. Investigators must provide information in the application demonstrating that they have an established relationship with each partner and a written agreement describing each partner’s role in the proposed research.

Youth Violence Prevention Interventions that Incorporate Racism/Discrimination Prevention (RFA-MD-18-005)

Description: The purpose of this initiative is to support research to develop and test youth violence prevention interventions that incorporate racism/discrimination prevention strategies for one or more health disparity populations. The target age range includes middle school to high school-aged youth, corresponding to an approximate age range of 11 to 18.

Domestic Violence Prevention Initiative (HHS-2018-IHS-DVPI-0001)

Description: The purpose of this Single Source grant is to provide funding to assist victims of domestic and sexual violence (DSV) on the Pine Ridge Reservation.  Specifically, Indian Health Service is requesting an application that will enhance or expand the Oglala Sioux Tribe's crisis response efforts, shelter and emergency housing services, and/or training and technical assistance opportunities.  Examples of grant activities may include:

  • Purchase of modular buildings to expand shelter services
  • Emergency travel and transportation costs to surrounding shelters
  • Training for staff and/or individuals delivering DSV services
  • Technical assistance
