Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research Centers: 2023 Special Interest Project Competitive Supplements (SIPS)

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Public health practitioners need scalable, feasible interventions and tools. Applied public health prevention researchers can engage communities to develop and evaluate health promotion and disease prevention interventions, disseminate new science, and translate proven effective interventions into public health practice and policy for population health benefit. This NOFO will provide supplemental funding to Prevention Research Centers (PRCs), currently funded under RFA-DP-19-001, to conduct a Special Interest Project (SIP) to design, test, evaluate, disseminate, and translate effective applied public health prevention research strategies to include interventions (i.e., programs, practices, policies, or strategies) and tools developed in real-world settings to address the leading causes of illness, disability, and death in the United States. Research strategies align with public health priorities such as the Healthy People 2030 topic area: Vaccination and Infectious Disease

Eligibility Requirements

Applications may include more than one PI/PD; however, the first PI/PD listed on the application must be the PRC Core PI/PD named on the PRC Core Notice of Award. The PRC Core PI/PD will be the contact PI/PD for all correspondence associated with this NOFO. If the actual SIP PI/PD is different from the PRC Core PI/PD, then the actual SIP PI/PD should be listed in the application as the SIP Co-PI/PD. Additional SIP PIs/PDs are permitted but would be also referred to as a SIP Co-PIs/PD.

Multiple applications for the same SIP from the same institution are not permitted (e.g., only one application per SIP per institution is allowed).

Amount Description

The estimated total period of performance funding (including direct and indirect costs) is $1,500,000. The total funding (including direct and indirect costs) for the 12-month budget period is estimated to be $1,500,000. It is anticipated that up to 3 awards will be made under this NOFO. Awards issued under this NOFO are contingent upon availability of funds and receipt of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research projects will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the total amount awarded, and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, and cost of the applications.
