Grants to Support the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Health Services Research Grant Program: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) is announcing the availability of funds under this grant program to assist Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in conducting health services and health disparities research. The purpose of the grant program is to support researchers in implementing health services research activities to reduce disparities among diverse CMS beneficiary populations. The economic burden of health disparities in the U.S. has an estimated cost of 1.24 trillion dollars. As part of its Equity Plan, CMS OMH is working to "develop and disseminate promising approaches to reduce health disparities." This grant program seeks to: 1) support researchers at HBCUs to pursue topics that impact Black and African American populations; 2) fund research to investigate health disparities and how they can be reduced; 3) foster the dissemination of best practices and innovations among grantees, within CMS and beyond; and 4) improve healthcare quality for CMS's minority beneficiaries.
