NHLBI Notice of Intent to Publish a FOA Fall 2018

Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Disparities Elimination through Coordinated Interventions to Prevent and Control Heart and Lung Disease Risk (DECIPHeR)

The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) intends to publish a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to invite applications that propose to test strategies for delivering proven-effective, evidence-based, community-level interventions for reducing or eliminating cardiovascular and/or pulmonary health disparities, and that promote and improve population health in high-burden communities.

In the face of persistent and often widening disparities in cardiovascular and pulmonary health, disease, and risk factors, a large number of proven-effective interventions that can improve health outcomes exists.  This initiative will seek applications that propose to utilize these known interventions to determine optimal and sustainable delivery strategies that provide generalizable knowledge for reducing or eliminating disparities in cardiovascular and pulmonary health, disease, and risk factors in high burden communities across the U.S.

The NHLBI is interested in applications that will address questions relevant to the NHLBI mission and align with the Institute’s Strategic Vision (https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/about/documents/strategic-vision ).

This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects.

The FOA is expected to be published in Fall 2018 with an expected application due date in Winter 2019.
