Funding Opportunity: Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH)


UPDATE: Please see the updated post on this topic.

We’re pleased to share that the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) program (PAR-23-166) has been reissued. NARCH supports federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native Tribes and Tribal colleges or universities, Tribal health programs, and Tribal organizations. The program funds health-related research, research career enhancement, and research infrastructure-enhancement activities. This NOFO is led by NIGMS with additional participating NIH institutes, centers, and offices.

A NARCH award is for up to 5 years with an annual budget of up to $1.3 million in direct costs. The first NARCH application due date is July 8, 2024.  

We’ll announce a pre-submission webinar for NARCH applicants via this blog in early 2024. At the webinar, we’ll discuss changes from the prior NOFO, explain program expectations and reporting requirements, and address your questions. We strongly encourage anyone interested in applying to attend.

Potential applicants are encouraged to consult with the program staff listed in the NOFO about the suitability of proposed NARCH applications. For more information about the program and a list of currently funded centers, visit the NARCH webpage.
