Ending the HIV Epidemic: Focus on Justice Populations with SUD (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Required)

Under the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is releasing a set of interrelated Request for Applications (RFAs) to create the HIV/Justice Research Network, a coordinated effort to develop innovative strategies to promote improvements in HIV prevention and treatment services for individuals involved in the criminal legal system with substance use disorder (SUD). Separate Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFOs) are being issued to support three elements: multiple Regional Research Hubs (RRH; RFA-DA-24-015); one Data Coordination and Dissemination Center (DCDC; RFA-DA-24-023); and one Patient Engagement Resource Center (PERC; RFA-DA-24-022). It is imperative that prospective applicants read all related NOFOs to better understand the intended purpose and structure of the HIV/Justice Research Network.

This NOFO seeks applications for multiple Regional Research Hubs. These phased awards will partner with the criminal legal system and HIV/SUD service providers in three or more communities to field pilot studies and hybrid implementation-effectiveness trials testing innovative service delivery models to better engage populations involved in the criminal legal system in HIV and SUD prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction.
