TB Elimination Alliance Announces 2023 Mini-Grant Program Awardees

The Tuberculosis Elimination Alliance (TEA), led by the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF), Hepatitis B Foundation (HBF), and Stop TB USA, with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of TB Elimination, announced that it awarded a total of $250,000 to 12 community health organizations serving Asian, Asian American (A/AA), Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (NH/PI), Hispanic/Latino and African American communities that are disproportionately impacted by tuberculosis (TB).

 

TEA offered a third cycle of 12 mini-grant awards totaling $250,000 to community providers that increase awareness and build capacity on TB testing and treatment. The newly awarded mini-grant recipients in this cycle are as follows:

  • Arkansas Coalition of Marshallese (Springdale, AR)
  • Asian Pacific Health Foundation (San Diego, CA)
  • EthnoMed (Seattle, WA)
  • Jericho Road Community Health Center (Buffalo, NY)
  • Midwest Asian Health Association (Chicago, IL)
  • Mission Neighborhood Health Center (San Francisco, CA)
  • Regional Pacific Islander Taskforce (San Francisco, CA)
  • Revive Community Health (Tempe, AZ)
  • Rural Women's Health Project (Gainesville, FL)
  • San Diego County Medical Society Foundation, dba Champions for Health (San Diego, CA)
  • Todu Guam Foundation, Ltd. (Tamuning, Guam)
  • We Are TB / Somos TB (National)

Since its inception in 2019, TEA has distributed over $800,000 in mini-grant funding to 36 organizations. TEA, our members, partners, and mini-grantees look forward to building on the progress that we have made so far towards TB elimination.

Analyzing Early Events in TB and TB/HIV Infection for Interventional Targets (R01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed) expires 10/12/2023

Due Dates: October 11, 2023

Open Date: Earliest Submission Date: September 11, 2023

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support mechanistic studies of the early stage of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection, with and without HIV, to identify interventional targets for vaccine and host-directed therapies. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) will support mechanistic studies of early Mtb infection (defined as the time between Mtb exposure and early-stage granuloma formation) in the airway and lung with the ultimate goal of understanding these events in the setting of HIV co-infection.

Catalyst Award for Early-Stage Investigators (ESIs) Pursuing Research on HIV Comorbidities, Coinfections, and Complications (DP1- Clinical Trial Optional)

Open Date (Earliest Submission Date): April 01, 2023

Expiration Date: May 02, 2025

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) supports research from creative early stage investigators who propose highly innovative, pioneering studies with potential to open new areas of HIV/AIDS research related to coinfections, comorbidities, and complications. Projects should reflect new and novel scientific directions that are distinct from concepts and approaches being pursued in the investigator’s research program or elsewhere. Projects must be consistent with the scientific priorities outlined by the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR). These priorities have been described most recently in NOT-OD-20-018.

TB Centers of Excellence - Grants Notice

TB Centers of Excellence for Training, Education and Medical Consultation (COE)

CDC plans to establish and fund up to four regionally-assigned Tuberculosis Centers of Excellence (TB COE) to facilitate efforts to prevent, treat, and control TB disease and latent TB infection (LTBI) in the United States (U.S.). The TB COE will focus on two major activities: (1) increasing knowledge, skills, and abilities for TB prevention and control through communication, education, and training activities, and; (2) improving sustainable evidence based TB clinical practices and patient care through the provision of expert medical consultation. The funds available for these core activities will be used to support TB and LTBI communication efforts, training, education, and medical consultation activities.
