Administrative Supplements for Research on Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations (Admin Supp)

| Community and Family Health Funding, Health Policy and Management Funding




United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)


Upper $100,000 USD

The NIH Office of the Director and partner ICOs intend to commit up to $1M in FY 2016 to fund approximately 10 awards.

Application budgets may be for no more than $100,000 in total costs, and must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.


The NIH Office of the Director announces the availability of administrative supplements to expand existing research to focus on Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) health. SGM populations include, but are not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, and individuals with differences or disorders of sexual development (sometimes referred to as “intersex” or as specific diagnoses). This trans-NIH effort, which involves multiple Institutes, Centers and Offices from across NIH, is intended to encourage investigation in this underrepresented growing field of research. To increase our collective understanding of the broad range of the health needs of SGM populations, the supplement will focus on areas of specific research interest beyond HIV/AIDS, including, but not limited to: studies on increased disease risk; behavioral and social health; approaches to personalized medicine; access to care; reproductive and sexual development; and resilience.
