The National Library of Medicine is accepting applications, beginning November 16, 2016, for NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities. Here is some key information and dates for applying for the grant:
Funding Opportunity Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits resource grant applications for projects that will bring useful, usable health information to health disparity populations and their health care providers. Access to useful, usable, understandable health information is an important factor during health decisions. Proposed projects should exploit the capabilities of computer and information technology and health sciences libraries to bring health-related information to consumers and their health care providers.
Because this FOA focuses on providing health information to health disparity populations, institutions with demonstrated commitment to the needs of health disparity communities (including Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) and other institutions in rural and socially disadvantaged areas) are encouraged to apply.
Earliest Submission Date for Applications: November 16, 2016
Application Due Date: December 16, 2016, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization
