Grants are available to USA government agencies, non-profits, and others to increase access to health information for health care providers and consumers, in populations where significant health inequalities exist. June 29, 2014 is the deadline for a non-mandatory Letter of Intent. Applicants can propose a new or enhancement of an existing resource or service which meets the needs of a health disparity population.
This funding opportunity is focused on putting research knowledge into practice by providing online information resources tailored to meet the needs of health disparity populations and their health care providers. Many factors influence use of information in health decisions, including physical access factors (such as availability of libraries or Internet connectivity in the context of a health visit or personal health decision), to intellectual access factors (such as readability, understandability and presentation format of health information).
Proposed projects should exploit the capabilities of computer and information technology and health sciences libraries. Preference will be given to applications from any institution that shows strong involvement of health science libraries.
Topics of interest for this grant program include:
* Developing information resources/services specifically directed towards health disparity populations.
* Providing information resources/services to community organizations involved with health disparity populations.
* Providing information resources/services to support academic health disparity researchers.
* Needs assessment studies that identify the types and forms of information needed by health disparity populations to assist them in making health-related decisions.
* Evaluation studies of existing information resources or services targeted at health disparity populations.
* Upgrading existing information resources or services to meet the needs of health disparity populations.
The following types of projects are considered outside the scope of NLM’s Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities program:
* Installation of Online library catalogs.
* Electronic health record systems, single-purpose or closed clinical systems such as a stand-alone laboratory system or picture archiving system (PACS).
* Digitization of print materials.
* Projects that duplicate NLM products and databases such as biomedical literature indexing projects.
