Notice Number: NOT-AA-10-003

Key Dates
Release Date:  July 13, 2010   

Issued by
National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) (



The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Request for Applications (RFA) to solicit applications for research to support one or more consortia of researchers across different institutions to 1) measure both short-term and long-term outcomes among HIV+  alcohol using, abusing, and dependent  populations and 2)  develop and strategically test interventions to reduce alcohol use and alcohol-related consequences in these populations in a coordinated way to prevent  morbidity and mortality in the impacted population. In addition, this research seeks to develop a new framework for sustainable implementation research among HIV+ alcohol users with the goal of high impact on health care systems. This initiative may build on existing cohorts of patients or HIV+ individuals in the process of entering or continuing treatment.

This notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects.

The RFA is expected to be published in the Fall of 2010.

This RFA will utilize the U01/U24 mechanisms. Details of the planned FOA are provided below.

Research Initiative Details

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) solicits up to five-year cooperative agreement (U24, U01) grant applications from institutions/organizations to establish two Consortia for HIV/AIDS and Alcohol-Related Outcomes Research Trials (CHAART) to complement and collaborate with other existing centers/cohorts with alcohol and HIV/AIDS outcomes research. The current FOA will fund two or more consortia to conduct alcohol-related outcomes and comparative effectiveness research -- natural experiments, quasi-experimental research, and practice-based strategic interventions -- that focuses on patient and clinician-relevant outcomes of healthcare and the determinants of these outcomes.  Overall the goal of this research activity is to advance operations or implementation research in the context of alcohol and HIV/AIDS.
