The ARPA Statewide Planning, Research and Networks NOFO is part of EDA’s multi-phase effort to respond to the coronavirus pandemic as directed by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. Specifically, this NOFO seeks to build regional economies for the future through two primary avenues: a) Statewide Planning and b) Research and Networks. Subject to the availability of funds, awards made under this NOFO will help develop coordinated state-wide plans for economic development and data, tools and institutional capacity to evaluate and scale evidence-based economic development efforts, including through communities of practice and provision of technical assistance among existing and new EDA grantees.

The goal of this funding opportunity announcement is to support hypothesis-driven research to gain an understanding of the dysregulation of transposable elements (TE) and their contributions to Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias and aging. This FOA encourages applications that investigate causal effects of TE activation in disease and aging and applications that model therapeutic interventions to facilitate the transition of the field from observational discovery towards a deeper mechanistic understanding of the function and regulation of TEs.

The ATE program supports the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation’s economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions (grades 7-12, IHEs), industry, and economic development agencies to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary institution school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways; and other activities. The program invites applied research proposals that advance the knowledge base related to technician education.
Amount: $350,000 – $7,500,000

This Funding Opportunity Announcement solicits applications for research projects that will use computational approaches to test the validity of dimensional constructs in the NIMH Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) matrix (or similar constructs based on comparable criteria). Some elements of the RDoC matrix have been updated since its first release, but a thorough data-driven validation that broadly explores, compares and validates the constructs within the matrix has not been performed.
Deadline: November 1, 2021
The Dialogues on the Experience of War program supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service. Dialogues is designed to reach military veterans; however, projects involving discussion groups that integrate veterans with civilians, men and women in active service, and military families are welcome. Project teams should include humanities scholars, military veterans, and individuals with relevant experience.

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity is to improve national capacity to address the growing problem of vector-borne diseases via support for regional Centers of Excellence for vector-borne diseases. The project objectives are threefold: 1) conduct applied research on approaches to prevent vector bites or suppress the populations of regionally important arthropod vectors and their associated human disease agents in the environment; 2) train a new generation of public health entomologists to serve as subject matter experts for arthropod pathogen vectors at state/local levels by involving graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in applied research; and 3) strengthen linkages and collaborative relationships between the academic community and state/territorial/tribal/local public health organizations, vector management programs and other potentially relevant stakeholder groups, as needed, to develop, evaluate and implement vector and vector-borne pathogen suppression strategies. The primary focus should be on applied research, with training and communities of practice elements designed to enhance applied research outcomes.
