The purpose of RFA-RM-23-012 is to solicit applications from eligible organizations that can serve as Health Equity Research Hubs (Hubs) for awarded community-led health equity structural intervention (CHESI) projects within the Community Partnerships to Advance Science for Society (ComPASS) Program. The Hubs will serve as a centralized research resource, providing tailored scientific, technical, and collaborative support for sustainable community engagement, research capacity building, and training to assigned CHESI projects that address Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) and structural factors to improve health outcomes. The Hubs are one of three complementary initiatives under the ComPASS Program, which also include the CHESI projects and the ComPASS Coordination Center.
