Funding Opportunity Announcements

Partnerships for Environmental Public Health (PEPH)

bar graph being viewed through magnifying glass

As a network, PEPH highlights funding opportunity announcements from NIEHS, from other institutes and centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and from other Federal partners. This section lists and describes the various funding opportunity announcements that are PEPH-related. This list will change as new funding opportunity announcements are released and others close.

NIEHS encourages investigators to submit project applications using the unsolicited research grant process (e.g., R01s). Unsolicited, investigator-initiated proposals are sent to NIH for review at the Center for Scientific Review (CSR). There are many Integrated Review Groups (IRGs) at CSR; however, those most likely to be appropriate for PEPH-related unsolicited applications include the Population Sciences and Epidemiology IRG and the Healthcare Delivery and Methodologies IRG.

When preparing your proposal, we highly encourage you to do the following:

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplements to Recognize Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Mentorship

Recognizes the crucial role that engaged, active mentors play in the development of future leaders in the biomedical and behavioral research enterprise. This NOSI encourages PD/PIs to promote DEIA and mentorship broadly and as such differs from a Diversity Supplement (PA-21-071). The latter is designed to support research experiences for individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups, through the career continuum from high school to junior faculty levels. In contrast, this NOSI focuses on allowing mentors who have dedicated their time and effort and made significant contributions to DEIA to further their personal research and/or mentoring activities. The parent award must have an existing mentoring component. Examples of DEIA excellence include, but are not limited to: enhancing training-based, mentoring, networking, cohort-building, career development, or psychosocial intervention to increase persistence of individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical research enterprise (see, Notice of NIH's Interest in Diversity, NOT-OD-20-031); fostering diverse and inclusive research workforce and research environment for trainees from all backgrounds; and engaging in DEIA service-oriented efforts beyond the needs of their own research programs.

Deadline: February 17, 2023

Implementation Research on Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factors among Low- and Middle-Income Country and Tribal Populations Living in City Environments (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Supports applications that propose implementation research to reduce the risks of noncommunicable diseases in the context of cities in low- and middle-income countries and/or among American Indian/Alaska Native populations in U.S. cities, with the potential to equip policymakers and practitioners with evidence-based strategies for prevention and/or management of noncommunicable diseases among disadvantaged populations globally. NIEHS is interested in applications that are within the scope of its 2018-2023 Strategic Plan and focus on implementation research in partnership with low and middle-income countries and American Indian/Alaska Native populations that addresses environmental noncommunicable disease risk factors (e.g., air pollution, disaster risks attributed to climate change, etc.) in one or more cities. Specific areas of interest to NIEHS include, but are not limited to: implementation research focused on the uptake, scale-up, and spread of multi-level and/or multi-sectoral interventions to reduce noncommunicable disease risks attributed to physical and built environmental exposures in cities; implementation research focused on how to improve the adaptive capacity of cities in the face of climate change and climate change-related disasters; and implementation of interventions to reduce environmental noncommunicable disease risks that consider social and structural social determinants of health.
