Description: Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH). The FOA is intended to support substance abuse prevention and treatment services research in rapidly evolving areas (e.g., changes in service systems, health care financing, policy, natural/man-made disasters, etc) where opportunities for empirical study are, by their very nature, only available through expedited review and award of support. There are three distinguishing features of an eligible study: 1) the studys scientific value and feasibility are clear, 2) rapid review and funding are required in order for the scientific question to be answered, and 3) the knowledge gained from the study is time-sensitive and seeking funding through the regular NIH cycle of review and award would result in a missed opportunity to conduct the research. It should be clear that the research question offers an uncommon and scientifically significant research opportunity that could only become available if the project is initiated with minimum delay. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PAR-07-345 that encourages applications under the Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Award (R21) mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
