Texas CEAL Consortium: Funding Opportunity for COVID projects
December 20, 2021

This Request for Consortium Partner Projects is based on the NIH Research Opportunity Announcement for the Community Engagement Research Alliance (CEAL) Against COVID-19 Disparities April 2022 – March 2023 funding period.

Texas CEAL Consortium was developed in response to NIH calls for collaboration in September 2020. See our website for more details: For this new funding cycle, the priorities and goals of CEAL have shifted as COVID-19 as evolved. We are seeking collaborative and community engaged projects across Texas to be part of the next Texas CEAL Consortium funding period.

Project must be responsive to the following objectives:
1. Support research on awareness, education, misinformation, and mistrust around SARS-CoV-2 and new variant infections, COVID-19, and the promotion of vaccine acceptance and uptake; and
2. Promote inclusion of disproportionately affected racial/ethnic minority populations in COVID-19 clinical studies and trials (prevention, treatments, vaccines, and diagnostic testing), including observational studies, clinical trials and other research in Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC).
