We seek to close the racial equity gap so all children, families and communities can be more confident, healthier and secure in their trust of the systems and institutions that serve them. We seek ideas from anywhere in the world and will scale them over the next decade to transform the systems and institutions that uphold inequity. Solutions may tackle the social, economic, political or institutional inequities we see today. Teams of visionaries, change agents and community leaders from every sector are invited to join.
Up to 10 finalists will each receive a one-year $1 million planning grant and nine months of capacity-building support to further develop their project and strengthen their applications. This is a multi-phase challenge culminating in at least three Awardees receiving grants of $20 million each, and at least two Awardees receiving grants of $10 million each. These awards will be paid out over nine years to coincide with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s 100th anniversary.
The Disability andRehabilitation Engineeringprogram supports fundamental engineering research that will improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities through the development of new technologies, devices, or software combined with advancement of knowledge regarding healthy or pathological human motion, or advancement in the understanding of injury mechanisms.
Up to $100,000 of awards will be issued during the month of October 2020 for select child advocacy centers nationwide meeting qualifying criteria to cover the full costs to implement VidaNyx's cloud-based digital evidence solution.
By moving to digital evidence management with VidaNyx, users report up to 90% cost savings and 67% faster case preparation. This award is provided by a private donor who understands the need, the increased risk and severity of abuse during the pandemic, and is stepping up to provide critical support for new technology to advance lifesaving services.
"Our goal is to ensure that these critical child testimonies are securely and immediately accessible to as many multidisciplinary collaborators as necessary to accelerate and enhance the delivery of services. No child should have to wait unnecessarily for justice and healing to begin,” said Sara Boyd, CEO.
The goal of the Environmental Engineering program is to support potentially transformative fundamental research that applies scientific and engineering principles to 1) prevent, minimize, or re-use solid, liquid, and gaseous discharges of pollution to soil, water, and air by closing resource loops or through other measures; 2) mitigate the ecological and human health impacts of such releases by smart/adaptive/reactive amendments or manipulation of the environment, and 3) remediate polluted environments through engineered chemical, biological, and/or geophysical processes.
Integral to achieving these goals is a fundamental understanding of the transport and biogeochemical reactivity of pollutants in the environment. Therefore, research on environmental micro/biology, environmental chemistry, and environmental geophysics may be relevant providing the research has a clear objective of protecting human and ecological health.
The place-based Jobs Plus program addresses poverty among public housing residents by incentivizing and enabling employment through earned income disregards for working residents and a set of services designed to support work including employer linkages, job placement and counseling, educational advancement, and financial counseling. Ideally, these incentives will saturate the target public housing projects (referred to as "projects" hereafter), building a culture of work and making working residents the norm.
The Jobs Plus program model comprises these three core components (further described below):
1. Employment-Related Services
2. Financial/Rent Incentive – Jobs Plus Earned Income Disregard (JPEID)
3. Community Support for Work
Applicants are encouraged to develop key partnerships to connect participants with any other needed services to remove barriers to work. An Individualized Training and Services Plan (ITSP) should be developed for each participant to establish goals and
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits R01 grant applications to develop novel technologies that will enable no less than one order of magnitude improvement in synthetic nucleic acids. The goal is to improve the quality, capabilities and efficiency of nucleic acid synthesis and synthetic constructs (e.g., longer oligonucleotide and synthetic construct lengths, faster turn-around times, greater accuracy, incorporation of modified bases, higher-throughput, etc.) at reasonable and decreased costs with the anticipation that major advances in any of these and related areas would make significant contributions to the mission of NIH, NHGRI and the field of genomics, including to many of NHGRIs other technology development goals.

The Foundation reviews requests for general operating funds, program support, technology/equipment, scholarship funds, new strategic initiatives, capital campaigns/projects, and occasionally multi-year grants. For capital requests, additional documentation is required.Applicants have the ability to self-select the focus area in the Grants Portal that best represents the organization’s mission and work.
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications for support of innovative clinical and preclinical/non-clinical research to determine the potential of MDSCs as a target for host-directed therapeutics for tuberculosis in the context of HIV co-infection, and to better understand the role of host-induced immunosuppression in the progression of Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogenesis.

Two years ago, we announced AI for Humanitarian Action as part of the Microsoft AI for Good program, a $165 million initiative to help unlock the power of data and AI to address some of the biggest challenges facing society today. Since 2018, the need to accelerate the pace of innovation has increased rapidly due to growing inequality and the COVID-19 pandemic. Building on the progress of the past two years and the urgency of the moment, we’re expanding the program beyond nonprofits.
The program will provide up to USD$300,000 fair market value in Azure and data science services, including up to 1000 hours of engagement by data science experts and Azure enablement support. Nonprofits, United Nations Organizations, International Organizations, research, academic, and governmental organizations are eligible to submit project proposals. Private sector organizations can also apply if a nonprofit/humanitarian partner is directly engaged in the proposed project.
This FOA issued by AHRQ invites grant applications for funding to conduct exploratory and developmental research grants (R21) for projects in the early and conceptual stages of development that will contribute to the evidence base of how health information technology (IT) improves health care quality and outcomes.
