Funding Agency:
US Department of Agriculture
NIFA requests applications for the Mental Health Research Project (MHRP) for fiscal year FY 2017 to support the Air Force Medical Operations Agency (AFMOA) MHRP in promoting the psychological health and well-being for airmen and their families through staff development, consultation, program and resource development, program evaluation, and data tracking.
The primary objective for this project is to assess, develop, and evaluate programming to treat and prevent mental health problems to support the Mental Health Division of the Air Force Medical Operations Agency (AFMOA).
This work also supports the mission of the Department of Defense (DoD)-USDA Partnership for Military Families Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed in 2010 by NIFA and DoD senior leadership. The goal of the MOU is "To enhance federal interagency coordination and build capacity for partnerships and collaboration among the agencies and across public and private sectors to sustain programs and services for military service members and their families.”
