The Department of Health and Human Services seeks projects that will bring useful, usable health information to health disparity populations and their health care providers. Access to useful, usable, understandable health information is an important factor when making health decisions. Proposed projects should exploit the capabilities of computer and information technology and health sciences libraries to bring health-related information to consumers and their health care providers. Because this funding stream focuses on providing health information to health disparity populations, institutions with demonstrated commitment to the needs of health disparity communities (including Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) and other Minority-Serving Institutions (MSI)) are encouraged to apply.

A project can develop and deploy a new information resource or service, or expand and improve an existing resource or service in order to meet the needs of a health disparity population. For a proposed project to be competitive, there must be evidence that the intended audience is a health disparity population and/or their healthcare providers. A population is a health disparity population if there is a significant disparity in the overall rate of disease incidence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality or survival rates in the population as compared to the health status of the general population.

Topics that are responsive to this grant program include, but are not limited to:

•Developing or upgrading health information resources/services to meet the needs of health disparity populations.

•Providing health information resources/services to community organizations involved with health disparity populations.

•Developing information strategies to facilitate implementing patient-centered care and precision medicine within a health disparity population.

•Developing information resources that will enable persons with health disparities to make informed consent decisions regarding research participation. 

•Needs assessment studies that identify the types and forms of information needed by health disparity populations to assist them in making health-related decisions.

•Evaluation studies of existing information resources or services targeted at health disparity populations.

Grant Amount: Grants of $150,000 for one year and $300,000 for two years are available.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include:

•State governments

•Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education

•For-profit organizations other than small businesses

•Native American tribal organizations (other than Federally recognized tribal governments)

•Others
