Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Specific Areas of Research Interest for NIMHD:

NIMHD is interested in projects that examine the role of “place” (e.g., U.S. Census regions, states, counties, cities, neighborhoods, rural geographies, and locations across the urban-rural continuum) in health that will create actionable knowledge to address geographic disparities for NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities in the United States: African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian American, and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander persons, less privileged socioeconomic groups, underserved rural populations, and sexual and gender minority (SGMs) groups. NIMHD encourages projects that use approaches encompassing multiple domains of influence (e.g., biological, behavioral, physical/built environment, sociocultural environment, and healthcare system) and multiple levels of influence (e.g., individual, interpersonal, community, and societal) to understand and address health disparities (see the NIMHD Research Framework, https://www.nimhd.nih.gov/about/overview/research-framework.html, for more information).

Of particular interest are a variety of place-based and spatially patterned factors that may explain geographic patterns of earlier onset or more aggressive progression in mid-life mortality and morbidity for NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities.
