Purpose

This program provides grants for research on the outcomes of care for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia by identifying home- and community-based services used, as well as barriers to accessing care and unmet needs. Explaining geographic disparities, such as urban versus rural, in access to and quality of care is a suggested research topic.

There are two funding opportunities under this program:

  1. R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant for the development of new research activities in the early and conceptual stages
  2. R01 Research Project Grant that supports a discrete project to be performed by an investigator in an area representing the investigator's specific interest and competencies

A list of suggested research topics is provided in the application instructions for each of the project types.
