Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA local, State, territories, federal, and tribal agencies, businesses, nonprofits, and IHEs for research regarding informal caregiver health using self-management. February 3 is the deadline to submit an LOI. Registration to apply should begin early as it may take up to 6 weeks to complete.

Informal caregivers (lay caregivers) are defined as unpaid individuals (spouses, partners, family members, friends, or neighbors) involved in assisting others with activities of daily living and/or medical tasks.

This initiative will advance research needed to enhance caregiver health and quality of life, reduce care giving-related burden and distress, and improve access to knowledge, resources, and tools needed to promote caregivers’ own health using self-management.

The research objectives of this FOA are to:

- Design culturally-tailored interventions to help caregivers leverage supports, manage burdens, stress, and other negative outcomes to maximize healthy behaviors and QOL using self-management

- Develop culturally-sensitive tools using self-management and technology to improve caregivers’ skills, knowledge, and access to resources, services, and social support to promote caregiver health

- Identify biomarkers to help predict when caregivers are at high risk for poor health that can be addressed through self-management

- Identify self-management interventions at different transitions in the caregiving that address the challenges, barriers, and unique situations related to caregiver’s age, gender, or socioeconomic status and promote caregiver health

- Identify what interventions are efficacious and effective for self-management of care-givers across chronic conditions

- Identify mechanism of action of self-management interventions that work to affect caregiver health outcomes
