The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop and maintain a coordinating center (CC) for the Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) program. The RCMAR program supports behavioral and social research on aging, health disparities in older adults, and Alzheimers disease and Alzheimers disease related dementias (AD/ADRD), through the development of research infrastructure and mentorship of early career scientists from diverse backgrounds. The primary responsibilities of the RCMAR CC are to: coordinate and provide logistical support to RCMAR Centers; facilitate cooperation and collaboration across RCMAR Centers; create and maintain an interactive RCMAR CC website; identify and share research and training resources and materials; provide support, technical assistance, and resources to early career investigators; and perform program analysis and evaluation. The CC will also develop and implement strategies to enhance the visibility of the RCMAR program and behavioral and social research on aging and AD/ADRD as a whole, and to communicate the importance and value of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the aging and AD/ADRD research enterprise.
