The purpose of this webinar was to disseminate and assist with developing grant applications in response to an important funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled Interventions for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Native American Populations (R01) (PAR-11-346), in which the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is participating. The webinar included a 30-minute presentation and 30 minutes for Q and A. The presentation expanded on what is written in the FOA and described common weaknesses of NIH grant applications. The webinar reflected the ongoing efforts of NIDA and NACE to partner in common areas of interest. As this FOA provides funding for substance abuse intervention research it is a natural point of intersection for NIDA and NACE.
The target audience included those interested in developing grant applications and in applying to the NIH for grant support to assess the efficacy and/or effectiveness of interventions for American Indian and Alaska Native populations. As these research efforts are partnerships between communities and research scholars, the target population included both.
