The OBSSR, in coordination with NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices, recently released funding opportunity announcements (FOA) PAR 22-115 and PAR 22-120: Research on Community Level Interventions for Firearm and Related Violence Injury and Mortality Prevention (CLIF-VP).
A technical assistance webinar for these funding opportunities (PAR 22-115 and PAR 22-120) was held on Thursday, March 17, 2022, at 3:00 PM ET. During the webinar, NIH staff discussed the purpose and scope of these funding opportunities and reviewed the scientific review process, criteria, and other logistical information. The captioned webinar recording, the pre-application webinar slides, and a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) are now available on the OBSSR website.
Potential applicants are encouraged to review the posted information carefully and reach out as needed to the appropriate contacts listed in the PAR. The application deadline is April 22, 2022.
FOA (PAR 22-115) solicits bi-phasic research projects proposed in UG3/UH3 Phased Innovation Awards Cooperative Agreement applications. Funding for the UG3 phase (phase I) will be used to demonstrate sufficient preparation, feasibility and capacity to meet foundational milestone targets specific to the work proposed. A UG3 project that meets its milestones will be administratively considered by NIH and prioritized for transition to the UH3 award (phase II). Applicants responding to this FOA must address specific aims and milestones for both the UG3 and UH3 phases.
FOA (PAR 22-120) seeks applications for a Coordinating Center (CC) for Community-Level Interventions for Firearm Violence Prevention (CLIF-VP) Research Network. The CLIF-VP Research Network will include the CC funded under this Cooperative Agreement and up to 10 Research Projects funded under the companion UG3/UH3 Phased Cooperative Agreement FOA, Research on Community Level Interventions for Firearm and Related Violence, Injury, and Mortality Prevention (CLIF-VP) PAR-22-115 . The CC will provide overarching support and guidance to the network in three domains: (1) administration, coordination, and communication; (2) data, measurement, and analytic support and consultation; and (3) public/stakeholder engagement and dissemination support.
