Minority Research Grant Program (MRGP): The Minority Research Grant Program (MRGP), as authorized under Section 1110 of the Social Security Act, provides funding opportunities to support health equity research conducted at 1) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), 2) Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), 3) Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs), or 4) Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs). Through this funding opportunity, the Minority Research Grant Program will make awards to eligible institutions (HBCU, TCU, HSI, or AANAPISI) that are selected. A single institution may submit more than one application for consideration, providing that each application is scientifically distinct. The purpose of the MRPG is to support researchers at minority serving institutions that are exploring how CMS can better meet the health care needs of CMS beneficiaries. The MRGP supports research on the discovery and characterization of health processes, practices, behaviors, and burdens or issues related to CMS programs, policies, and operations, that influence health equity. Funded research may comprehensively address the social determinants of health that drive or influence the barriers and opportunities populations described above experience related to CMS-supported benefits, services, and coverage. By focusing onunderstanding how inequities in communities impact health, Funded research may also employ participatory methods that foster equitable engagement of affectedcommunities in research, such as convening and advisory board with community members, community-based organizations, and service providers.The three goals of the MRGP are to:1. Develop capacity at minority serving institutions to research health disparities and social determinants of health;2. Understand the root cause of issues – processes, practices, behaviors, and burdens – that lead to health disparities and identify replicable interventions; and3. Strengthen CMS programs by disseminating best practices uncovered through funded research.
