Community Health Access and Rural Transformation (CHART)

The Community Health Access and Rural Transformation (CHART) Model is a voluntary payment model designed to meet the unique needs of rural communities. The CHART Model will test whether aligned financial incentives, increased operational flexibility, and robust technical support promote rural health care providers’ capacity to implement effective health care delivery system redesign on a broad scale. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) will evaluate the impact of the CHART Model on Medicare and Medicaid expenditures, access to care, quality of care, and health outcomes for rural residents. CHART aligns with CMS’s Rethinking Rural Health initiative, which aims to ensure individuals in rural America have access to high quality, affordable health care by offering new and creative payment models. The CHART Model will include two tracks: 1) the Community Transformation Track and 2) the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Transformation Track. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is for the Community Transformation Track only. Under the Community Transformation Track, award recipients will receive cooperative agreement funding and a programmatic framework to assess the needs of their Community (as defined in section A.4.3.1. Community Definition below) and implement health care delivery system redesign. Hospitals participating in the Community Transformation Track Alternative Payment Model (APM) will receive capitated payments. Capitated payments provide hospitals with a stable revenue stream and incentivize reductions in fixed costs and avoidable utilization. Operational flexibilities will be available for participating hospitals to relieve regulatory burden, emphasize high-value services, and support providers in care management for their beneficiaries.

Re-entry to Active Research Program (RARE)

The Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) and the Division of Chemistry (CHE) are conducting a Re-entry to Active Research (RARE) program to reengage, retrain, and broaden participation within the academic workforce. The primary objective of the RARE program is to catalyze the advancement along the academic tenure-track of highly meritorious individuals who are returning from a hiatus from active research. By providing re-entry points to active academic research, the RARE program will reinvest in the nation’s most highly trained scientists and engineers, while broadening participation and increasing diversity of experience. A RARE research proposal must describe potentially transformative research that falls within the scope of participating CBET or CHE programs. The RARE program includes two Tracks to catalyze the advancement of investigators along the academic tenure system after a research hiatus, either to a tenure-track position or to a higher-tenured academic rank. Track 1 of the RARE program reengages investigators in a competitive funding opportunity with accommodations for gap in record that are a result of the research hiatus. A Track 1 proposal will follow the budgetary guidelines of the relevant CBET program for an unsolicited research proposal or the relevant CHE Disciplinary Research program. Track 2 retrains investigators for whom the research hiatus has led to the need for new or updated techniques, such that retraining is required to return the investigator to competitive research activity. A description of how these new techniques will lead to competitive research in CBET or CHE programs is required. A Track 2 proposal budget will include only funds necessary for specific retraining activities, such as travel to a workshop or conference, workshop registration fees, a retraining sabbatical, or seed funding to support collection of preliminary data (including salary support, equipment usage fees, materials, and/or supplies).

Combating Opioid Overdose Through Community-Level Intervention

The purpose of the Combating Opioid Overdose through Community-level Intervention grant is to: undertake research activities that entail implementing and evaluating community-based efforts to fight the opioid-involved overdose epidemic and support and promote the partnership of law enforcement and public health agencies, whose collaboration is critical to reducing overdose and other harms of opioid-involved (mis)use Projects must be evidence-based, and evaluate these community-based efforts to assess their efficacy in reducing opioid-involved overdose and other harms of opioid use, particularly in the regions of the United States with the highest rates of fatal and non-fatal opioid-involved overdoses. Projects should support and promote collaboration between public safety and public health agencies to ensure that there is a comprehensive and coordinated response.

Open Philanthropy Grants

The United States incarcerates its residents at a higher rate than any other major country. We believe that local, state and federal governments can significantly reduce the use of incarceration and criminalization, averting substantial human and economic costs, while making communities safer. We believe that this issue presents an unusual degree of political opportunity, due to a recent confluence of progressive and conservative interest in reform and the increasing public attention to the problem.

Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation Grants

The Foundation supports work to create a more equitable and humane justice system. Current funding priorities include multi-pronged approaches to eliminate the use of solitary confinement, including supporting a national campaign that provides resources to state and local coalitions. Creating a more humane system involves changing the culture within a system that is based on a punishment paradigm into one that returns people home as healthy and valued citizens and neighbors. To that end, the Foundation supports work to change the culture of the system and institutions. We look for programs that seek to change the inherent nature and role of the current justice system.

Mechanism for Time-Sensitive Drug Abuse Research (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support pilot, feasibility or exploratory research in 5 priority areas in substance use epidemiology and health services, including: 1) responses to sudden and severe emerging drug issues (e.g. the ability to look into a large and sudden spike in opioid or synthetic cannabinoid use/overdoses in a particular community); 2) responses to emerging marijuana trends and topics related to the shifting policy landscape; 3) responses to unexpected and time-sensitive prescription drug abuse research opportunities (e.g., new state or local efforts); 4) responses to unexpected and time-sensitive medical system issues (e.g. opportunities to understand addiction services in the evolving health care system); and 5) responses to unexpected and time-sensitive criminal or juvenile justice opportunities (e.g. new system and/or structural level changes) that relate to drug abuse and access and provision of health care service. It should be clear that the knowledge gained from the proposed study is time-sensitive and that an expedited rapid review and funding are required in order for the scientific question to be answered (i.e. an imminent policy change will not allow for standard review and funding timeline).

Emergency Department Substance Use Surveillance System

This project seeks to further refine and geographically expand a methodology for obtaining drug early warning indicators through broader testing of urine samples that were previously collected and tested as part of an existing drug test protocol.�This method was initially developed using local criminal justice populations � including persons in pre-trial or lock-up, parolees or probationers, and drug court participants.�Similar methodology is promising for use in other venues, such as in trauma units and emergency departments, where biological samples are often collected from patients. Before the specimens are discarded, the project will re-test them for an expanded panel of drugs, including synthetic cannabinoids, to determine what old and new illicit drugs are detected or missed by conventional testing protocols, and how the drug patterns might vary by subpopulation and geography.�Bypassing the expense of collecting the original specimens and re-using those that have already been tested with known results yields a relatively inexpensive and timely picture of emerging drugs in a given subpopulation and locality. ONDCP is seeking to apply this testing methodology to Emergency Department populations in locations throughout the United States.
