Natural Experiments of Policy and Built Environment Impact on Diabetes Risk
Component A: To support a 5-year multi-center research network of innovative, non-health system-based, natural experiments approaches to alter the diabetogenic characteristics of US communities. Priority areas include population-level approaches to the promotion of healthy eating and active living by evaluating the impact of environmental and policy interventions on population-level risk factors for diabetes.
Component B: To fund a Central Coordinating Center (CCC) to provide organizational, logistic and communication support to enhance the efficiency, productivity, and impact of the Natural Experiments research centers that are funded as part of Component A.
Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number) per component is allowed. Eligible applicants may apply for Component A or both components (A and B). If an applicant organization intends to apply to more than one component in this FOA, the applicant must submit separate applications for each component. Applicants must submit an eligible application under Component A in order to apply under Component B. The PI for Component A may be different than the PI for Component B.

Special Eligibility Requirements:
Component A: Applicants must have letters of commitment from partners to show continuous access to datasets and/or data systems proposed for the study), or access to other data sources or populations needed to accomplish study objectives (i.e. data use agreements) for ready access to data in order to assess the uptake/usage, behaviors, and health status impact for populations of at least 10,000 individuals. Agreements must also be in place that allow for unrestricted publication of findings regardless of study outcomes.
Component B: Applicants must have an eligible application under Component A to apply for Component B, and must be awarded under Component A in order to be awarded under Component B.
It is anticipated up to 4 awards will be issued under Component A and one award under Component B in response to this FOA. For Component A, an applicant may request up to $675,000 per year for up to five years. For Component B, an applicant may request up to $300,000 per year for up to five years. These estimates include direct and indirect costs. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon availability of funds and a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is also anticipated that the size and duration of each award may also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration and cost of the applications received
