The National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) funding priority for 2015 is to support research on screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (SBIRT) in order to improve identiﬁcation of disordered gamblers, explore the efﬁcacy of brief interventions for this population and increase the rate of disordered gamblers referred to treatment.
The NCRG is open to a wide variety of proposals for research in this area provided they are focused on adult populations.
Because a key aspect of SBIRT is the integration and coordination of screening, early intervention, and referral to treatment, NCRG welcomes proposals that involve collaboration between academic institutions and healthcare providers, such as hospitals, as well as state and local departments of public health.
Funding & Duration
Large Grant applicants may request up to $75,000 per year in direct costs and up to 15 percent in Facilities & Administration costs for a period not to exceed 24 months in support of research investigations of gambling disorder.
Domestic or international, public or private, non-profit or for-profit organisations are eligible to apply for NCRG funding. The Principal Investigator (PI) must have a MD, other terminal degree.
