Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements with USA nonprofits, for-profits, IHEs, and government agencies for research studies to improve housing-related safety and health policy and practices. Funding is intended particularly for studies that will advance the public’s knowledge of housing safety, and to develop or improve hazard control and assessment methods.

HUD is especially interested in applications that will advance knowledge on priority healthy homes issues by addressing important gaps in the science related to the accurate and efficient identification of hazards and the implementation of cost effective hazard mitigation. 

General Goals: 

  1. Lead Technical Studies (LTS)
  2. Healthy Homes Technical Studies (HHTS)

Community Participation:

HUD believes that it is important for researchers to incorporate meaningful community participation in the development and implementation of studies that are conducted in communities and/or involve significant interaction with community residents. Community participation can improve study effectiveness in various ways, including the development of more appropriate research objectives, improving recruitment and retention of study participants, improving participants' involvement in and understanding of a study, improving ongoing communication between researchers and the affected community, and improving dissemination of study findings. HUD encourages applicants to consider using elements of a CBPR approach, where applicable, in study design and implementation.

CBPR is characterized by substantial community input in all phases of a study (i.e., design, implementation, data interpretation, conclusions, and communication of results).
