NHLBI Announces Plan to Fund a Limited Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) Exam 3

November 28, 2017

In recent posts on this Digital Forum, NHLBI announced plans to fund a new examination in the CARDIA Study and the Jackson Heart Study.  NHLBI would now like to announce its intent to fund a new limited clinic Visit 3 in the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL; see NIH Guide Notice NOT-HL-17-563).  The exam, which will take place from approximately November 1, 2019 through October 31, 2022, will serve as a platform for investigator-initiated, peer-reviewed, independently funded exam components that will enrich the exam data collection with additional hypothesis-driven content.  The intent of Notice NOT-HL-17-563 is to allow ample time for interested researchers to comply with HCHS/SOL requirements and develop NIH grant applications to fund exam components addressing innovative research questions in HCHS/SOL.

The Table summarizes timing considerations for submitting grant applications proposing components for HCHS/SOL’s Exam 3 cycle.  (See this website for more information about NIH grant application cycles, due dates, etc.)

Potential applicants may wish to consider the following:

  • New (A0) applications and resubmission (A1) applications received by the May 2019 Council Cycle (Cycle III) standard due dates and that receive fundable scores would enable an award approximately 4 months before the HCHS/SOL Exam 3.
  • While new (A0) applications received by the January 2019 Council Cycle (Cycle II) standard due dates would, if funded, have ample time to prepare for the Visit 3 data collection, resubmission (A1) applications received by the October 2019 Council Cycle (Cycle I) standard due dates that receive fundable scores would result in grant awards 1 month after the planned Visit 3 start.
  • For new (A0) applications received by the May 2019 Council Cycle (Cycle III) standard receipt dates that do not receive fundable scores, amended (A1) applications will not be funded until 5 months after Visit 3 is underway.

Therefore, for grant applications received after the January 2019 Council Cycle (Cycle II) standard due dates (due dates between May 25 and September 7, 2018), applicants will need to consider timing of their data collection relative to that of the planned exam and any additional time and associated costs that may be required to complete their exam components as proposed.

If you are interested in partnering with the HCHS/SOL in developing and obtaining funding for innovative content for the upcoming exam, please carefully read the NIH Guide Notice NOT-HL-17-563 and visit the HCHS/SOL website for its ancillary studies policies and other relevant information.
