Application Due Date
LOI due 30 days before application due date
Brief Description

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support dissemination and implementation (D&I) research focused on increasing access to and uptake of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) testing interventions – with the goal of reducing COVID-19 disparities and promoting health equity among underserved and vulnerable populations. This NOFO will support D&I research on how evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies are effectively translated to and used in real-world settings. Projects may evaluate the adoption, adaptation, integration, scale-up, and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, or seek to understand the “de-implementation” of practices that are ineffective, low-value, or inequitable. Interventions developed through the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics – Underserved Populations (RADx®-UP) initiative are encouraged, but not required. 

The funding for this program is provided from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, Public Law 117-2.
