General Information

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Grants Funding & Guidance for Applicants.
  • Concept papers (PDF, 143KB) Grant applicants are encouraged to contact a DESPR program official (PO) to ensure that their concept is a good fit with evolving public health and scientific needs. It is often best if you draft a concept paper prior to contacting a PO as this will enable better guidance from officials on developing your grant application. PO contact information is listed on the web pages of each branch. Although there is no requirement to do so, experience tends to show that involving a PO early in a project's evolution results in a competitive application.
  • National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP), University of Michigan, ICPSR. NAHDAP acquires, preserves and disseminates data relevant to drug addiction and HIV research.
