USDA NIFA Rural Health and Safety Education Competitive Grants Program (RHSE) proposals are expected to be community-based outreach education programs, such as those conducted through Human Science extension outreach that provide individuals and families with information or training in these areas: i) the value of good health at any age; ii) increase individual or family’s motivation to take more responsibility for their own health; iii) rural environmental health issues that directly impact human health; iv) health promotion and educational activities; v) training for volunteers and health services providers concerning health promotion and health care services for cooperation with state, local, and community partners. Awards limits are $350,000 for projects up to two years in duration. Proposals are due July 1.

AccessLex Institute invites Letters of Intent (LOI) for its Financial Education Research Grant program provides funding for the development and implementation of innovative, high-impact financial education research. The central goal of the grant is to develop data, facts, and conclusions which further the understanding on how to develop student financial knowledge, support behavior change, and ultimately promote financial well-being. We are particularly interested in measuring both student and organizational outcomes. Funding requests may be between $10,000 and $125,000 for grant period of performance between 6 and 24 months.
LOI due June 30, 2020. Full proposals due October 15, 2020.


Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) has developed a reporting tool to ensure compliance with sponsored projects compliance requirements. Many sponsors require notification of any effects of the pandemic on sponsored projects, including disruptions or delays in accomplishing the work. As researchers learn more about the impact of the pandemic on your projects, you may need to contact the sponsor’s program officer and/or grants manager to notify them of the impact. Please go to the COVID-19 Impact Reporting page to learn more about what may require reporting. From there you can launch the COVID-19 Reporting Tool to enter brief information about how your work has been impacted.
Please contact Sarah Marcotte or Andrea Plassman for help with reporting study impacts.
