Historically Black Colleges and Universities Health Services Research Grant Program: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is announcing the availability of funds under its grant program to assist Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in conducting health services research for 2006. The purpose of the grant program is to support researchers in carrying out health services research activities to meet the needs of diverse CMS beneficiary populations. The goals of the grant program are to: 1) encourage HBCU health services researchers to pursue research issues which impact the Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP programs, 2) assist CMS in implementing its mission focusing on health care quality and improvement for its beneficiaries, 3) assist HBCU researchers by supporting extramural research in health care capacity development activities for the African American communities, 4) increase the pool of HBCU researchers capable of implementing the research, demonstration, and evaluation activities of CMS, and 5) assist in fostering interuniversity communication and collaboration regarding African American health disparity issues. This grant program is consistent with President George Bush's HBCU Executive Order 13256, signed on February 12, 2002 directing executive departments and agencies to increase the ability of HBCUs to participate in federally sponsored programs. The purpose is to strengthen 'the capacity of HBCUs to provide quality education and to increase opportunities to participate in and benefit from Federal programs.' Federal agencies are directed to establish funding on an annual basis to be awarded to HBCUs through grants, contracts, or cooperative agreements. Funding is available for grants to implement research related to health care delivery and health financing issues affecting African American communities, including issues of access to health care, utilization of health care services, health outcomes, quality of services, cost of care, health and racial disparities, socio-economic differences, cultural barriers, managed care systems, and activities related to health screening, prevention, outreach, and education. To be eligible for grants under this program, an organization must be an HBCU and meet one of the following three requirements: 1) offer a Ph.D. or Master's Degree Program in one or more of the following disciplines Allied Health, Economics, Gerontology, Health Services Administration, Health Care Administration, Health Education, Health Management, Human Services and Consumer Sciences, Nursing, Nutrition, Pharmacology, Psychology, Public Health, Public Policy, Social Work; or 2) have a School of Medicine; or 3) be a member of the National HBCU Network for Health Services and Health Disparities.
