This program provides research grants to link data from healthcare system records to mortality data to get an accurate understanding of the risk factors for, and the burden of, suicide among individuals seen in structured healthcare settings.

Each National Institute participating in this opportunity has specific research priorities listed in the application instructions. There are separate CFDA numbers for each project type.

  • 93.242 - Mental health research grants
  • 93.279 - Drug abuse and addiction research programs
  • 93.307 - Minority health and health disparities research

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities is especially interested in applications that seek to better understand suicide risk and mortality in health disparity populations, including racial/ethnic minorities, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, underserved rural populations, and sexual and gender minorities. Topics of specific interest include:

  • Suicide risk factors and mortality within specific health disparity populations
  • Patterns of suicide risk and mortality related to the intersection of multiple health disparity populations
  • Protective factors related to lower suicide mortality in particular health disparity populations
  • Methods to generate more accurate estimates of probable suicide mortality for causes of death that are more prevalent in certain health disparity populations

Eligible applicants include

  • State, county, city, township, or special district governments
  • Independent school districts
  • Public and private institutions of higher education
  • Federally or state recognized tribal governments
  • Public and Indian housing authorities
  • Native American tribal organizations, including Tribal Epidemiology Centers
  • Nonprofits with or without 501(c)(3) status
  • For-profit organizations and small businesses
