Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Healthy Eating Research Program

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Healthy Eating Research (HER) program aims to build a Culture of Health by identifying effective strategies to improve children’s nutrition and weight. HER’s mission is to support and disseminate research on policy, systems, and environmental strategies that promote healthy eating among children and advance nutrition security and health equity.

Some goals of the program are to: build a vibrant, inclusive, interdisciplinary research base in the areas of healthy food access, nutrition security, diet quality, and healthy weight; and communicate research findings to accelerate policy, systems, and environmental changes.

The Foundation hopes to generate evidence on supportive family policies and programs that have strong potential to impact equitable access to nutritious food in communities, nutrition security, diet quality, and improved nutrition and health outcomes. Programs can be: federal nutrition assistance programs; hunger-relief programs; community-powered food systems efforts; and social and economic programs (nonfood policies).

The Foundation is especially interested in strategies to improve health outcomes for children ages 0 to 18 at highest risk for poor nutrition, specifically lower-income families, as well as the racially and ethnically diverse populations experiencing higher rates of health disparities.

The goal is to learn what does and does not work and why; under what circumstances, who most benefits from these policies and programs; and if disparity gaps are reduced.

The focus is solution-oriented research that addresses policy, systems and environmental (PSE) change at the national, state, local, and tribal levels.

The PSE research strategies can focus on: how to strengthen existing policies or programs; evaluation of current policies or programs; or designing and pilot-testing new innovative programs that are policy-relevant.

Findings will be used to guide and inform decision-making about policy and system changes that can advance nutrition equity and improve health.

  • Grant Amount: Up to $275,000 for up to two years (20% indirect costs)
  • Concept Paper Deadline: April 5, 2023

Whitehall Foundation Research Grants

The Whitehall Foundation assists scholarly research in the life sciences. It is the Foundation's policy to assist those dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by Federal Agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. In order to respond to the changing environment, the Whitehall Foundation periodically reassesses the need for financial support by the various fields of biological research.

The Foundation is currently interested in basic research in neurobiology, defined as follows: Invertebrate and vertebrate (excluding clinical) neurobiology, specifically investigations of neural mechanisms involved in sensory, motor, and other complex functions of the whole organism as these relate to behavior. The overall goal should be to better understand behavioral output or brain mechanisms of behavior. The Foundation does not support research focused primarily on disease(s) unless it will also provide insights into normal functioning.

The Foundation does not award funds to investigators who have substantial extramural funding, even if it is for an unrelated purpose. While it is difficult to assign a specific dollar amount to this policy and each case is unique, the Foundation currently defines "substantial" as approximately $200,000 per year (including both direct and indirect expense but excluding the Principal Investigator's salary).

Please see the foundation website for more details:

Grant Amount: up to $100,000 per year for 2-3 years 

Next LOI Deadline: April 15, 2023

Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Rapid Explanation, Analysis and Sourcing Online (REASON) Program

The Rapid Explanation, Analysis, and Sourcing Online (REASON) Program aims to develop technology that will enable intelligence analysts to substantially increase the quality of argumentation in their analytic reports through more effective use of evidence and reasoning. In the context of an analytic report, evidence is information that supports or opposes a judgment, while reasoning is the stated justification for the judgment. Furthermore, strong reasoning is reasoning that logically substantiates the judgments while weak reasoning is reasoning that either fails to substantiate the judgments or contains logical flaws.  The technology developed by the REASON Program will automatically produce comments (feedback and recommendations) on a draft report, highlighting additional relevant evidence, and identify strengths and weaknesses in the draft’s reasoning. Analysts can use the comments to improve their reports.

Offerors shall address all three technical Task Areas (TAs) to meet REASON’s goal of developing automated methods to produce comments on draft analytic reports that enable analysts to substantially increase the report’s quality of argumentation:

  • Task Area 1 (TA1) – Identify Additional Evidence: Automatically find relevant supporting and contrary evidence in addition to the evidence used in a draft report.
  • Task Area 2 (TA2) – Identify Reasoning Strengths and Weaknesses: Automatically find strengths and weaknesses in the reasoning of a draft report.
  • Task Area 3 (TA3) – Produce Comments to Increase Quality of Argumentation: Based in part on the output of TA1 and TA2, automatically produce comments that enable analysts to substantially improve the argumentation in their reports.

Offerors must propose novel approaches to each of these three TAs, and if selected as a Performer, will be required to create an end-to-end technology that incorporates software components from each TA. Developed capabilities must be compatible with a provided Application Programming Interface (API) to facilitate assessment by independent test and evaluation (T&E) according to program metrics described in Section II.A.7, Program Metrics.

The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the REASON Program has been posted here, Additional information about the REASON program, including videos of the Proposers' Day can be found at

NIH Funding Opportunities and Notices for the Week

  • Funding Notices for the Week Investigators interested in submitting a proposal to a limited submission grant, award, or fellowship program (one that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an institution), should immediately contact Eva Olivares in the Office of the Vice Provost for Research + Scholarship. 
  • Updated Requirements for NIH Notification of Removal or Disciplinary Action Involving Program Directors/Princial Investigators or other Senior/Key Personnel. Section 239 now requires that, “[t]he Director of the National Institutes of Health shall hereafter require institutions that receive funds through a grant or cooperative agreement during fiscal year 2022 and in future years to notify the Director when individuals identified as a principal investigator or as key personnel in an NIH notice of award are removed from their position or are otherwise disciplined due to concerns about harassment, bullying, retaliation, or hostile working conditions.” Therefore, effective 60 days from the publication of this Notice, NIH recipient institutions are required to notify NIH when individuals identified as PD/PI or other Senior/Key personnel in an NIH notice of award are removed from their position or are otherwise disciplined by the recipient institution due to concerns about harassment, bullying, retaliation or hostile working conditions. Notification must be provided by the Authorized Organization Representative within 30 days of the removal or disciplinary action and must be submitted to NIH through a dedicated web form.
  • NIH NIAID Technology Transfer Fellowship ProgramFellows will be mentored by professionals that work side-by-side with with world-renowned NIAID and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientists and will be part of the team that helps transfer innovations from the lab to commercial products (including vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics) that benefit global public health.
  • NIH Grants Policy Statement (Rev. Dec 2021) This update is applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2021. This update supersedes, in its entirety, the NIHGPS dated April 2021. Previous versions of the NIHGPS remain applicable as standard terms and conditions of award for all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began prior to October 1, 2021. This update incorporates new and modified requirements, clarifies certain policies, and implements changes in statutes, regulations, and policies that have been implemented through appropriate legal and/or policy processes since the previous version of the NIHGPS dated April 2021.
  • Childcare Funding Available for Pre/Post Docs Full-time appointed predoctoral and postdoctoral NIH-NRSA supported trainees are eligible to  receive $2,500 per budget period for childcare costs provided by a  licensed childcare provider. For households where both parents are eligible full-time predoctoral or postdoctoral NRSA trainees, each parent is eligible to receive $2,500.
  • Guidance on Salary Limitation for Grants and Cooperative Agreements This Notice provides information regarding the salary limitation for NIH grant and cooperative agreement awards and extramural research and development contract awards. Since 1990, Congress has legislatively mandated a limitation on direct salary for individuals under NIH grant and cooperative agreement awards (referred to here as a grant). The mandate appears in the annual appropriation act that provides authority for NIH to incur obligations for a given Fiscal Year (FY). At this time, NIH has not received an FY 2022 appropriation and is operating under a Continuing Resolution, the "Continuing Appropriations Act, 2022" (Public Law 117-70), that applies the terms and conditions of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021.
