Call for Researchers to Submit Supplement Funding Applications for COVID-19 Efforts

NINR is participating in a recently issued Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) that highlights the urgent need for social, behavioral, economic, health communication, and epidemiologic research relevant to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and COVID-19.

This NOSI encourages urgent competitive revisions and administrative supplements to existing longitudinal studies that address key social and behavioral questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including adherence to and transmission mitigation from various containment and mitigation efforts; social, behavioral, and economic impacts from these containment and mitigation efforts; and downstream health impacts resulting from these social, behavioral, and economic impacts, including differences in risk and resiliency based on gender, race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and other social determinants of health.

Supplement applications are limited to no more than $100,000 direct costs per year for up to two years and will be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis through March 31, 2021 by 5:00 PM local time.

Investigators who are interested in submitting a COVID-related supplement to NINR are strongly encouraged to contact their program officer to confirm their funded project is eligible for a supplement and to determine whether their proposal is responsive to this NOSI.
