The University of Kentucky Center for Poverty Research (UKCPR), in cooperation with the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the Food Nutrition Service (FNS) in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will competitively award grants to qualified individuals and institutions to provide rigorous research that utilizes data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) or from NHIS linked to the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS).
We seek new research with the NHIS or NHIS-MEPS that expands our understanding of (1) the interaction between adult mental and physical health and household food insecurity, (2) SNAP on the health of both family caretaker and children, and (3) food insecurity on health and the possible mediating role of SNAP.
It is anticipated that 4 grants of up to $75,000 each will be awarded.
Proposals are due .
