This FOA invites Research and Development Center (P30) grant applications in the areas of demography and economics of aging, including relevant interdisciplinary areas rooted in population-based social science research. Areas of focus that are especially encouraged are: a) socioeconomic status (SES) disparities at older ages, including geographic disparities; b) the reasons for poor U.S. performance in health and mortality in international comparisons; c) trends and dynamics in old-age disability; d) cohort trends in obesity and its sequelae; e) family demography including the demography of care and caregiving for chronic disease, disability and Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD); and f) long-term supports and services for the disabled elderly population.
Applications that wish to focus exclusively on AD/ADRD should submit to RFA-AG-20-002. Center grant applications must include two mandatory Cores and may choose among three optional Cores.
Centers are required to work collaboratively with the Coordinating Center to be funded via RFA-AG-20-003.
The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Community Research Infrastructure (CCRI) program supports research infrastructure that will specifically support diverse communities of CISE researchers pursuing focused research agendas in computer and information science and engineering. This support involves developing the accompanying user services and engagement needed to attract, nurture, and grow a robust research community that is actively involved in determining directions for the infrastructure as well as management of the infrastructure. This should lead to infrastructure that can be sustained through community involvement and community leadership, and that will enable advances not possible with existing research infrastructure.
The CCRI program supports two classes of awards:
New awards support the creation of new CISE community research infrastructure with integrated tools, resources, user services, and community outreach to enable innovative CISE research opportunities to advance the frontiers of the CISE core research areas. The New award class includes Grand Ensemble (Grand), Medium Ensemble (Medium), and Planning awards.
Enhance/sustain (ENS) awards support the enhancement and sustainment of an existing CISE community infrastructure to enable world-class CISE research opportunities for broad-based communities of CISE researchers that extend well beyond the awardee organization(s).
