HIV/AIDS and Substance Use Among the Homeless and Unstably Housed (R01)
Grant Amount: NIH intends to fund an estimate of 4-8 awards, corresponding to a total of $4 million, for fiscal year 2014.
To improve understanding of the intersection of HIV/AIDS and drug abuse, this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is part of a multipronged 2014 expansion of HIV and AIDS-related research within the context of drug and alcohol abuse among understudied populations and in understudied settings that show promise for the development of effective prevention and treatment efforts. In addition to this funding opportunity, others included in the 2014 expansion address substance use, HIV, and Black/African American women and young Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) (RFA-DA-14-010); the integration of substance abuse and HIV prevention and treatment within HIV/AIDS service delivery settings (RFA-DA-14-011); exploratory research on comorbid HIV, chronic pain, and substance use among older adults (RFA-DA-14-012), and Seek, Test, Treat, and Retain Data Harmonization Coordinating Center (RFA-DA-14-007). This FOA invites research grant applications focused on homeless or unstably housed persons to elucidate the interconnections among substance use, HIV/AIDS and other co-morbidities. The FOA encourages studies on the development, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of effective HIV-prevention interventions, research related to the epidemiology of HIV infection and substance use, and health services studies to improve the quality of substance use prevention and treatment services for the homeless and unstably housed populations.
