The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced the Analytics for Equity Initiative for social, economic and behavioral sciences research which examines equity-related topics for public benefit via federal data and scientific advances. The Initiative seeks to address issues in the thematic areas of Equity of access to STEM Research and Education Opportunities; Environmental Stressors and Equity; Equity in Service Delivery and Supports; Health Equity in the Wake of Climate Change; and Equity Considerations for Workplace Safety and Workers.

The initiative results from a partnership between the NSF, the White House Office of Science and Technology, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies.

Proposed budgets cannot exceed $75,000 and selected researchers are expected to engage with relevant stakeholders and data assets, conduct initial analyses and develop larger-scale agendas.

The pre-solicitation notices are posted until December 9, 2022 and the full solicitation will be posted on January 16, 2023. Information about proposal submissions is forthcoming.
