RFA-MD-20-005: Methods and Measurement in Research with SGM Populations

Deadline: March 13, 2020 

Please see the recently published Request for Applications (RFA) on Methods and Measurement in Research with Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations (RFA-MD-20-005).

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support research projects to advance the measurement of constructs relevant to health research with sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations. Research projects are solicited in two areas: (1) measurement of SGM status and (2) measurement of SGM-related constructs. 

Projects must involve measurement research, i.e., research that examines the performance, utility, and acceptability of new or existing measures. Projects that simply use SGM-related measures to answer specific research questions will not be supported. Projects may involve the development and testing of new or adapted measures and/or the examination of the performance or utility of existing measures with SGM populations. Quantitative or mixed-methods approaches are encouraged.

Applications are due March 13, 2020 by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization. For more information, please see the full FOA by clicking here.
