The Gulf Research Program is developing new programming around health and community resilience that prioritizes the needs and challenges of at-risk communities who are disproportionately affected by acute disasters.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support research that:

  1. adapts and implements existing evidenced-based interventions (EBIs) that address adverse DRMH for subgroups of the population who (a) are an at-risk community, (b) have a history of being disproportionately affected by acute disasters, and (c) are located in the GRP’s geographic focus area; and
  2. explore, examine, or evaluate the implementation of these adapted EBIs for cultural appropriateness.

The GRP defines “at-risk” communities as those who are underserved, under-resourced, under-represented, over-burdened or otherwise marginalized. The GRP is accepting proposals from U.S. academic institutions or nonprofit organizations. Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) are strongly encouraged to apply.

Total Amount Available: Up to $14 million
Award per Grantee: Up to $1 million
Period of Performance: Up to 36 months
Estimated Number of Awards: 4

Application Deadline: December 6, 2021; Deadline for submissions of proposals due by 5:00 p.m. ET.
