Recently Announced Funding Opportunities

The funding mechanism for this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) will be a K01 Mentored Research Scientist Development Award.

Applicants must propose a research project that aims to better understand and identify risk and protective factors related to polydrug initiation, use, escalation, and overdose. This could include, but is not limited to, co-use of opioids, stimulants, and/or cannabis, including co-use with or without the knowledge of the person who is using the drugs. Additionally, research can focus the examination of potential moderators of risk and protective factors for polydrug initiation, use, and escalation; and/or can investigate the relationship between polydrug use and overdose.

Research should be conducted among persons experiencing a disproportionate burden of substance use disorders and overdose, which may include but are not limited to those people in certain socio-demographic groups (e.g. non-English speaking populations, tribal populations, rural communities, racial/ethnic minority groups, sexual and gender minority groups), people experiencing certain social determinants of health (e.g., reduced economic stability; limited educational attainment, access or quality; limited healthcare access or quality including those who have been historically underserved or are uninsured; limited access to substance use treatment; limited health literacy; those in geographically underserved areas), or people experiencing certain social or physical health conditions or experiences (e.g., homelessness, a mental health condition, chronic pain, incarceration or recent release from incarceration, a disability, adverse childhood experiences, a history of suicidal ideation or suicide attempt, a history of substance use disorders and/or overdose).

This NOFO (RFA-CE-23-002) is intended to:

  • Provide support for an intensive, supervised (mentored) career development experience in substance use and/or overdose prevention research leading to research independence.

NCIPC intends to support up to three (3) recipients, who may request up to $150,000 per year for a maximum of three years.

Letter of intent due: December 19, 2022. Letters of intent are requested by December 19, 2022. A letter of intent is not required, is not binding, and does not enter into the review of an application.
