CDC’s Prevention Research Centers Funding Opportunity Announcement

The CDC’s Prevention Research Centers Program announces the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) #DP 14-001. This FOA will support a network of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research Centers to conduct applied public health prevention research. Funded centers will conduct one applied public health prevention research project that addresses an evidence gap in one of three broad categories: 1) dissemination and implementation research, 2) public health practice-based research, and 3) intervention research. Research activities should focus on underserved and minority populations that are related to the work of tribal, territorial, state, and local health departments. The funding provided by this FOA will also be used to support the development of a comprehensive prevention research center with the key elements of infrastructure and administration; community engagement, partnerships, and technical assistance; communication and dissemination; training; and evaluation. Funded centers will function as a part of a network to support and advance health promotion and disease prevention research and serve as a national resource for developing and applying effective public health programs at the state and community level.

Letters of intent are due by Friday, August 9, and the application submission due date is Monday, September 23, 2013, by 5 PM (EDT).
