CMS announces grants for health equity research
Jun 2, 2022
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Office of Minority Health’s Minority Research Grant Program announced a funding opportunity for health equity researchers at minority serving institutions. Three eligible institutions can be awarded up to $333,000 each to support research investigating or addressing health care disparities affecting populations including racial and ethnic minority groups, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities and others. Funding supports research on how CMS can better meet the health care needs of CMS beneficiaries, and research may comprehensively address the social determinants of health that drive or influence the barriers and opportunities these populations experience related to CMS-supported benefits, services, and coverage.
