Grant Description
Opportunity for USA individuals, groups of individuals, and private entities to participate in a competition to improve healthcare solutions for underserved communities. Applicants must register prior to submitting an application. Eligible participants will submit proposals to increase research participation and the adoption of medical care in underserved communities.

The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Build UP Trust Challenge seeks solutions that increase research participation and the adoption of medical care by building trust and improving engagement with historically underserved communities.

Research and healthcare institutions must make systemic changes by identifying specific barriers in their environments and developing targeted strategies that combat underrepresentation in health research and underutilization of health care. NIH launched the Build UP (underserved populations) Trust Challenge to identify new and promising scalable strategies that increase research participation and the adoption of existing and new tools and approaches to detect, treat, and monitor diseases, conditions, and disorders by improving engagement with minority health populations and populations with health disparities.
The NIH Build UP Trust Challenge will award as many as ten Finalists up to $45,000 each and the opportunity to win one of four $200,000 prizes for promising strategies that increase research participation and the adoption of medical care by building trust and improving engagement with historically underserved communities.
