Grants to USA and territories public and private nonprofit entities including government agencies, school districts, IHEs, faith-based organizations, and Native organizations to promote health equity related to lupus. Required registrations may take up to a month to complete.

This notice solicits applications for projects to demonstrate the effectiveness of interventions for increasing minority participation in lupus-related clinical trials to help to reduce lupus-related health disparities experienced by racial and ethnic minority populations. Projects will seek to develop public-private and community partnerships to support and/or sustain effective practices to increase racial and ethnic minority enrollment and retention in lupus clinical trials, and tailor existing outreach or education interventions that focus on health care providers/practitioners and/or racial and ethnic minority populations.

Clinical trials play a key role in identifying and developing new and better treatments for lupus. In the US, clinical trials for lupus have had limited success in recruiting minority participants. This is in line with the underrepresentation of racial and ethnic minority populations in clinical trials in general. OMH expects the Lupus Program to result in the identification of effective interventions that increase racial and ethnic minority enrollment and retention in lupus clinical trials.

Reducing and eliminating health disparities is a critical step toward promoting and achieving health equity. OMH expects awardees to address health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations, to demonstrate the impact of those efforts on outcomes and the overarching goal of advancing health equity.
