Deadline: Notice of Intent 12/17/2010; Proposals 1/7/2011

43-2 Technologies for Healthy Independent Living (R01) (NIH)

This FOA issued by the National Institutes of Health encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications for research and development of technologies that monitor health or deliver care in a real-time, accessible, effective, and minimally obtrusive way. These systems are expected to integrate, process, analyze, communicate, and present data so that the individuals are engaged and empowered in their own healthcare with reduced burden to care providers. The development of these technology systems has the potential to significantly improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, people aging with mild impairments, as well as individuals with chronic conditions. PAR-11-020 (NIHG 11/5/10)

Deadline: Letters of Intent 12/19/2010; Applications 1/19/2011, 5/19/2011, 9/19/2011

43-3 Land-Cover and Land-Use Change (NASA)

This solicitation is focused on two major themes: 1) Synthesis of prior Land Use and Land Cover Change studies and 2) Vulnerability, Impacts, and Adaptation (VIA), as related to climate interactions with land-use changes around the world, for example addressing the vulnerability of current land use systems and related social systems and their adaptability to climate variability and change and other major global stressors. Amendment 5 narrows down the VIA theme to a single land-cover type--wetlands--and adds emphasis to the social science component of this program element for both Synthesis and VIA themes. For a proposal to be competitive, it must include a social science component., Note that the remote sensing component is a necessary attribute for each proposal. NNH10ZDA001N

43-4 Centers for Agricultural Disease and Injury Research, Education, and Prevention (CDC)

NIOSH is encouraging applications from qualified organizations for Centers of Excellence in Agricultural Disease and Injury Research, Education, and Prevention (Ag Centers). These centers will conduct high quality research and help translate scientific discoveries into practical applications to improve worker safety and health. Center structure should take advantage of diverse scientific resources and focus on local, regional and national issues. Center functions should include developing holistic approaches that link prevention, intervention, translation, outreach, education, and evaluation. Applicant institutions may submit only one proposal. PAR-11-022 (NIHG 11/5/10)

43-7 Talent Search (TS) Program (ED)

The purpose of the TS Program is to identify qualified individuals with potential for education at the postsecondary level and encourage them to complete secondary school and undertake a program of postsecondary education. TS projects publicize the availability of, and facilitate the application for, student financial assistance for persons who seek to pursue postsecondary education and encourage persons who have not completed programs at the secondary or postsecondary level to enter or reenter and complete these programs. The Secretary encourages applicants to propose projects that provide services to students enrolled in schools that are not currently being served by a Talent Search project, especially schools that the State has identified as the persistently lowest-achieving schools.

43-12 Occupational Safety and Health Training Project Grants (T03) (CDC)

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invites grant applications for Training Project Grants (TPG) that are focused on occupational safety and health training and on research training. NIOSH is mandated to provide an adequate supply of qualified personnel to carry out the purposes of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (pub. L. 91-596, 84 Stat. 1590), and the TPGs are one of the principal means for meeting this mandate. TPGs are programs at institutions that provide training in the core occupational safety and health areas of industrial hygiene (IH), occupational health nursing (OHN), occupational medicine residency (OMR), occupational safety (OS), as well as other closely related occupational safety and health (OSH) fields. Applicants proposing training programs in allied disciplines closely related to OSH must contact the program administrator identified in this announcement to discuss the concept and its relevance to OSH training program priorities.
