HUD’s Office of Policy Development & Research (PD&R) is pleased to announce the availability a new funding opportunity entitled Homeless Families Demonstration Small Grant Research Program.
This funding opportunity makes available up to $150,000 in small grants to support research activities that will enhance the demonstration project currently being funded by HUD/PD&R entitled The Impact of Various Housing and Services Interventions on Homeless Families. The research funded under this program must be related to, complement, and enhance the Homeless Families study, should be state-of-the-art, and result in substantive contributions to scientific theory.
An applicant may request up to $75,000 for a three-year (36 months) grant performance period, and eligible applicants include: nonprofit organizations, for profit organizations located in the U.S, foundations, think tanks, consortia, institutions of higher education accredited by a national or regional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, and other entities that will sponsor a researcher, expert or analyst.
A note on funding for graduate students: The program cannot fund dissertation fellowships; however, we encourage proposals that include research roles for graduate students (e.g., as paid research assistants) who will write a master’s or PhD thesis on homeless families. (However, the professor and the institution would be responsible to HUD for the completion of the research proposed in the grant application in the form in which it was proposed).
The application process will be a two-step process, with preliminary applications due on February 18, 2011. Final awards are expected to be announced by June 1, 2011. Click here for further details about the study, the participating communities, and a Frequently Asked Questions document.
