Please use the following call-in information: (877) 950-3161, Participant Code – 2004960# More details and grant application here – deadline is July 11.

The Social Security Administration is “accepting applications for the Interventional Cooperative Agreement Program (ICAP), an exciting new research opportunity! ICAP allows [SSA] to enter into cooperative agreements with non-federal entities to conduct interventional research supporting our programs.  Cooperative agreements are legal financial assistance instruments between a federal agency (in this case, SSA) and a non-federal entity when substantial involvement between the two entities is required.  Interventional research, which ICAP funds, is used to evaluate the effectiveness of specific treatments or preventative measures, such as new service models or policy alternatives, to achieve specific outcomes.” Learn more here.
