COVID-19 and Health Equity Innovation Award:
OMHHE continues to support our health equity work through OMHHE’s Enhance Equity Initiative Funding Opportunity. OMHHE encourages research applications from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and other diverse organizations that serve racial and ethnic minority, underrepresented and underserved populations.
The COVID-19 and Health Equity Innovation award helps support this work. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to fund innovative research that will strengthen and advance COVID-19 health equity research.
Areas of interest include:
- Proposals that focus on advancing racial and ethnic minority participation in COVID-19/COVID-19 variant clinical trials and/or contribute to informing the continued evaluation of the safety and efficacy of FDA approved products (therapeutics, diagnostics, and vaccines) or products subject to EUAs/EUA expansion for the treatment, prevention, or diagnosis of COVID-19.
- Proposals that support the evaluation of outcomes by demographic data including, but not limited to, ethnicity, race, age, disability, and geography.
- Proposals that support COVID-19 research to understand diverse patient perspectives, preferences, and unmet needs.
