The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) invite grant applications for research that will ultimately lead to a reduction in the burden of mental illness and drug abuse in rural and frontier populations.

The purpose of this program announcement is to stimulate research on mental health and/or drug abuse problems in rural and frontier communities that will: (1) enhance understanding of structural (including community risk and resilience factors), cultural, and individual factors that may limit the provision and utilization of prevention and treatment services in these communities; and (2) generate knowledge to improve the organization, financing, delivery, effectiveness, quality, and outcomes of mental health and drug abuse services for diverse populations in rural and frontier populations.

Applications may focus exclusively on mental disorders, drug abuse disorders, or on the co-occurrence of these and related disorders.

Comparison of rural and urban populations and/or comparisons between rural populations is encouraged whenever possible, but this is not a requirement.
