CDC: Research Grants to Develop or Identify Effective Strategies to Prevent Overdose Involving Illicit Stimulants and Polysubstance Use Involving Stimulants
(p. 6) Eligible applicant organizations may submit more than one application to this NOFO, provided that each application is scientifically distinct.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will support the identification of effective strategies for state, community, or systems-level implementation to prevent fatal and nonfatal overdoses involving illicit stimulants (e.g., methamphetamine and cocaine) as well as polysubstance use and overdose involving illicit stimulants.
This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is intended to support research on one of the following two Objectives:
Objective 1: Conduct a process and outcome evaluation of new or adapted strategies, programs, or policies that can be implemented at the state, community, or systems-level to prevent illicit stimulant use or fatal and nonfatal overdose involving illicit stimulants, or polysubstance use or overdose involving illicit stimulants, OR
Objective 2: Assess risk and protective factors for illicit stimulant use, use disorder, and overdose that can contribute to the development or adaptation of intervention strategies.
NCIPC intends to fund applications evaluating the effectiveness of a prevention strategy through both a process evaluation and an outcome evaluation. Of particular interest is research that focuses on populations experiencing high rates of stimulant-involved overdose, such as those disadvantaged by reduced economic stability, limited education attainment, access, and quality, and limited health care access and quality. The focus on these groups aims to ensure that research advances knowledge among varied populations at risk for overdose. NCIPC intends to fund applications that focus on these populations. Additional anticipated long-term outcomes of this funding include increased translation of research to practice, and enhanced capacity of states, communities
