Research Grants to Prevent Firearm-Related Violence and Injuries (R01)
Application Due Date: 05/05/2020
On February 21, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released RFA-CE-20-006, Research Grants to Prevent Firearm-Related Violence and Injuries (R01). The purpose is to solicit investigator-initiated research to understand and prevent firearm-related injuries, deaths, and crime. Mass shooting incidents, other firearm homicides/assaults, firearm suicides/self-harm, unintentional firearm deaths and injuries, and firearm-related crime affect people in all stages of life. Firearm-related injuries are among the 5 leading causes of death for people ages 1-64 in the United States and many more people suffer nonfatal firearm-related injuries with the potential for lifelong consequences. It is critically important for research to help guide strategies to enhance safety from all forms of firearm-related violence and crime.
The intent of this announcement is to support activities under one or both of the following two Research Objectives:
Objective One: Research to help inform the development of innovative and promising opportunities to enhance safety and prevent firearm-related injuries, deaths, and crime.
Objective Two: Research to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of innovative and promising strategies to keep individuals, families, schools, and communities safe from firearm-related injuries, deaths, and crime.
NCIPC intends to commit up to $8,000,000 in fiscal year 2020 to support up to twenty applications. The total amount awarded, and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration and cost of applications received and approved.
Applicants may submit a research proposal under either of the following funding options:
Funding Option A will support research projects that rely on existing data and do not support implementation of prevention activities. These projects will be funded up to $350K/year for a period of performance for up to 2 years.
Funding Option B will support research projects that require support for new data collection activities and/or the implementation of prevention activities. These projects will be funded up to $650K/year for a period of performance for up to 3 years.
For More Information:
A pre-application teleconference call will be conducted to address questions regarding this NOFO. Questions and answers from the discussion will be included in an amended NOFO approximately 3 weeks after the call.
