Purpose

 

The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, seeks applications for the National, State, and Local Engagement Partner funding opportunity (FO) as part of the All of Us Research Program, a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health.

The National, State, and Local Engagement Partner is designed to fund local, regional, and national engagement partners who will establish strong collaboration with members of the All of Us consortium to design, implement, and evaluate strategies and tactics geared toward the following categories:

  1. Recruiting and retaining one million or more participants who reflect the rich diversity of the United States. To ensure that the All of Us data reflect the diversity of the country, the program needs to mobilize and collaborate with trusted organizations, intermediaries, and influencers to engage and facilitate enrollment and retention of communities historically underrepresented in biomedical research (UBR).
  2. Engaging researchers from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups, to utilize the All of Us data resources to advance precision medicine.
  3. Collaborating with health care providers who serve communities historically underrepresented in biomedical research to promote All of Us.
  4. Working with the All of Us consortium and communications team to develop assets that resonate with diverse groups and conduct multiple engagement, enrollment, and retention campaigns based on geography and programmatic scientific priorities.
  5. Contributing to the science of engaging, enrolling, and retaining UBR communities into research.

Each applicant should be an expert and from experienced organizations with a proven track record in some or all tasks and sub-tasks in this FO. Programmatic priority will be given to investigators who have demonstrated experience and success in engaging and recruiting communities historically underrepresented in biomedical research into research. All of Us considers the following populations UBR: racial and ethnic minority groups; children and seniors; sexual and gender minorities; people living with disabilities; people with barriers in access to care; people who have low income or low educational attainment; and rural residents.
