The Natural Hazards Center—with support from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation—is issuing a special call for quick response research focused on health outcomes among groups disproportionately affected by climate-related disasters.

Climate-related disasters—such as wildfires, floods, extreme heat events, harmful algal blooms, and severe storms—pose significant health risks, particularly for populations already experiencing health challenges and other disparities. In the context of such disasters, there is much to be learned about health outcomes for disproportionately affected groups such as children, older adults, people with existing health conditions, people of color, and people experiencing homelessness.

This special call of the Quick Response Research Award program is designed to address gaps in knowledge by encouraging the ethical collection of perishable data and the rapid return of results through the publication of Quick Response Reports. Initial findings from these studies will inform the understanding of the health ramifications of climate-related disasters and potential protective health measures.

Available funds will support awards in the amount of $10,000 to $50,000 each.

Funds must be used to collect perishable, health-relevant data for events that occurred within 12 weeks or less of proposal submission.

Application Deadline: Proposals for this special call will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted.
