All of Us Research Program Issues Funding Opportunity for New Engagement Partners

September 25, 2020

The All of Us Research Program has issued a new funding opportunity seeking the collaboration of national, state, and local engagement partners to recruit and engage participants in the landmark NIH program. 

All of Us, a historic effort to accelerate research and improve health, launched nationally in 2018 to create one of the most comprehensive and diverse biomedical data resources of its kind. To date, more than 358,000 participants have enrolled in the program. This latest funding opportunity illustrates the program’s commitment to partnering with organizations that are influential in their respective communities, especially those organizations that work with diverse communities. Through these partnerships, All of Us aims to create bi-directional and co-equal relationships that engage communities that have historically been underrepresented in biomedical research. 

The program anticipates funding at least six awards in FY 2021 through this latest funding opportunity, each with a total project period of five years. Applications are due on November 23, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. of the applicant’s local time. 

All of Us encourages eligible applicants with experience working with and engaging underrepresented communities to apply for this funding. All of Us considers the following populations underrepresented in research: racial and ethnic minority groups; children and seniors; sexual and gender minorities; people living with disabilities; people with barriers in access to care; people who have low income or low educational attainment; and rural residents. 

For full details regarding this opportunity, please see the funding announcement.

Interested parties are also encouraged to attend the forthcoming webinar for additional information:
