The newly launched NIH Common Fund’s Community Partnerships to Advance Science for Society (ComPASS) Program published a Notice of Information (NOT-RM-23-001) and a Notice of Intent to Publish (NOT-RM-23-002). These notices are intended to notify potential applicants about forthcoming funding opportunities through the ComPASS program. For additional information view the ComPASS funding opportunities page: https://commonfund.nih.gov/compass/fundingopportunities.
The goals of ComPASS are to 1) develop, share, and evaluate community-driven structural health equity interventions that leverage partnerships across multiple sectors to reduce health disparities and 2) to develop a new health equity research model for community-led, multisectoral structural intervention research across NIH and other federal agencies.
The program will enable communities and researchers to work collaboratively as equal partners in all phases of the research process to enhance the quality of interventions and advance health disparities research.

The NIH Common Fund encourages collaboration and supports a series of exceptionally high impact, trans-NIH programs.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) – “The Nation's Medical Research Agency” – includes 27 Institutes and Centers and is a component of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is the primary federal agency for conducting and supporting basic, clinical and translational medical research, and it investigates the causes, treatments and cures for both common and rare diseases.
