NICHD uses various funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), including requests for applications (RFAs) and program announcements (PAs/PARs), and notices (NOTs) of changes and guidelines to stimulate and support research activities at universities and other academic institutions.
This section highlights active FOAs and describes the mechanisms that NICHD uses to fund research.
Specific research priorities of DER branches and NCMRR are available at NICHD Research Priorities.
