Funding News and Grant Tips

Nearly a third of U.S. nonprofits have reduced head count or suspended operations as a result of COVID-19, a report from the Unemployment Services Trust has found. Based on survey responses collected from nearly eight hundred nonprofit employers over four weeks beginning March 26,
the COVID-19 Nonprofit Workforce Trends Report (7 pages, PDF) found that nearly 17 percent of respondents had eliminated or scaled back positions, while 13 percent reported suspending all or most of their operations and 43 percent said they had modified their operations extensively. The remaining 27 percent were considered essential services and said they were operating as they had pre-COVID. Nonprofits with between five hundred and a thousand employees were more likely than nonprofits with fewer or more employees to have eliminated or scaled back positions and suspended operations.

From Philanthropy News Digest website, accessed May 14, 2020.

With the COVID-19 pandemic creating uncertainty for both the economy
and the nonprofit sector, 20 percent of U.S. donors said they plan to
stop giving to charity until the economy has recovered, a report from Dunham+Company finds. Based on a survey of six hundred and thirty donors conducted between April 17-21, 2020, by Campbell Rinker, the report, Donor Confidence Strong in Face of COVID-19 (6 pages, PDF),
found that 28 percent of respondents said they plan to keep giving regardless of the impacts of the public health crisis, while 53 percent said they would continue to give but give “more carefully.”

Community Inclusion Mini-Grants 2020-10

SOURCE: Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: June 20, 2020.

$ AVAILABLE: $15,000 for up to 12 months.

ELIGIBILITY: Government agencies, nonprofits, colleges and universities, faith-based institutions, technical and/or professional schools, and for-profit businesses may apply if they can meet the requirements noted elsewhere in this Request for Applications (RFA). The entity that applies for this grant must be the entity that will administer the grant and receive, disburse, and account for grant funds. Individuals are not eligible.

PURPOSE: The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD) issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for Community Inclusion Mini-Grants (RFA 2020-10). Through these grants, organizations will create opportunities and address barriers so people with disabilities can experience full community life. Local organizations will conduct projects that will result in more people with disabilities participating in education, employment, and social activities in the community. Organizations will address barriers and or identify opportunities to increase community inclusion and projects will allow people with disabilities to participate in the community-integrated activities of their choice. To foster increased community inclusion, projects may replicate an existing best practice or develop a unique and innovative idea. 

CFDA: None listed.

DoD (Department of Defense) Prostate Cancer, Clinical Trial Award: W81XWH-20-PCRP-CTA

SOURCE: U. S. Department of Defense (DoD)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: July 16, 2020.

$ AVAILABLE: $9.6 million for three awards.

ELIGIBILITY: Unrestricted.

PURPOSE: The intent of the FY20 Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP) Clinical Trial Award is to accelerate the development of new interventions to decrease the burden of prostate cancer by supporting the rapid implementation of early-phase clinical trials (e.g., Phase 0, Phase I, pilot Phase II). Therapeutic approaches proposed for testing through the Clinical Trial Award may include novel interventions or the testing of existing interventions for new indications in prostate cancer but must represent hypothesis-based approaches for the treatment of prostate cancer that will have a major impact on one or more of the FY20 PCRP Overarching Challenges. Interventions may include drugs, devices, biologics, targeted radionuclides, surgical procedures, behavior modifications or other types of

interventions based on investigator discretion. It is anticipated that outcomes from studies funded by this award will provide scientific rationale for subsequent development of larger, efficacy-based clinical trials of interventions that will transform prostate cancer patient care. Funding from this award mechanism must support a clinical trial and may not be used for preclinical research studies.

(R01 – Clinical Trial Optional): PAR-18-581

SOURCE: National Institute on Aging (NIA)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: July 8, 2020 by 5 p.m. local time of applicant organization.

$ AVAILABLE: NIA intends to commit $2.5 million in FY 2018 to fund five to eight awards in response to this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and its companion R21 FOA PAR-18-582. The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.

ELIGIBILITY:

  • Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education.
  • Hispanic-serving institutions.
  • Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
  • Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs).

PURPOSE: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications that expand on foundational research demonstrating generally improved emotional function and emotion regulation with aging, to further clarify the trajectories of change in emotion processing and linked neurobiological factors in adults who are aging normally, as well as in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Alzheimer’s disease, and related dementias (ADRD). The goal is three-fold: to advance understanding of (1) normative maturational shifts in emotional processes, (2) how dysfunction in the integrative neural-behavioral mechanisms of emotional function might manifest in MCI and the early stages of ADRD, and/or (3) how such dysfunction might account for any of the neuropsychiatric symptoms observed in ADRD. Such studies may identify novel targets for interventions or prevention efforts or provide clues to intervention strategies that might be applied to normalize emotion dysregulation or strengthen emotional resilience at different life stages in normal aging or disease stages in MCI and ADRD. This FOA invites Stage 0 (basic research) or Stage I (intervention development/modification) clinical trials, in line with the NIH Stage Model.

Certification Research Grant

SOURCE: Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation (HPNF)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: July 1, 2020.

$ AVAILABLE: One grant of $15,000.

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, the Principal Investigator must:

  • Be actively involved in some aspect of hospice and palliative care practice, education, or research.
  • Hold a master’s or doctoral degree or be enrolled in a doctoral program.
  • Have a project that is consistent with the purpose of the research grant, stated above, and is ready for implementation when funding is received.
  • Complete project within one (1) year of funding.
  • Preference will be given to Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) members. 

PURPOSE: The purpose of the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation (HPNF) Certification Research Grant is to help build a better understanding of the impact of palliative nursing certification on patient outcomes. Previous research has demonstrated that certified and non-certified nurses, nurse managers, value certification. More recent research has begun to examine the impact of certification on patient outcomes. Studies done in the acute care setting suggest that care environments with a higher proportion of certified nurses have better patient outcomes. Replicating this research in the hospice or palliative care environment would advance our understanding of the value of palliative nursing certification. The HPNF Certification Research Grant is intended to provide investigators with resources to conduct exploratory, pilot or feasibility studies that will lead to larger scale projects linking certification with patient outcomes. Examples include collecting preliminary data about the distribution of certification qualifications among staff of different types of organizations or examining datasets from health care systems for patterns of staffing and outcomes.
