The NIH Common Fund is accepting applications for the Community Partnerships to Advance Science for Society (ComPASS) Health Equity Research Hubs (Hubs). The Hubs will serve as a centralized research resource, providing tailored scientific, technical, and collaborative support for sustainable community engagement, research capacity building, and training to support ComPASS community-led health equity structural intervention (CHESI) projects in collaboration with the ComPASS Coordination Center (CCC).


The Hubs are one of three complementary initiatives under the ComPASS Program, which also include CHESI projects that intervene on structural factors that create and perpetuate health inequities and the CCC that provides administration, coordination, data, and research capacity-building and training support to the CHESI projects. 


Letters of intent are due September 30, 2023. The application due date is October 31, 2023.


Although a letter of intent is not required, is not binding, and does not enter into the review of a subsequent application, the information that it contains allows staff to estimate the potential review workload and plan the review.


For more details on how to apply, read the full Notice of Funding Opportunity:


NIH staff will hold a technical assistance webinar on September 6, 2023, 2:00 PM ET to provide information about the funding opportunity and answer questions from potential applicants. Registration is required. Register for the webinar here:
