The Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) and the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) have formed a partnership to support innovative research and advance the strategic objectives of both organisations.

Through a Request for Proposals (RFP), the funding partners are seeking to fund research that will provide:

• Evidence of effective early intervention practice, that MSD and/or others in the social sector can implement, to respond to people who develop health conditions or disability while in work, with a goal of preventing a loss of connection to the labour market and to promote overall wellbeing; and
• An implementation framework that MSD and/or others can use to trial and evaluate new approaches that assist people to remain connected to work when managing health conditions or disability.

There are two separate funding opportunities available to apply for:

Project: the funding partners invite applications for project funding of up to $1.2 million (fully-costed, exclusive of GST) and maximum duration of two years.

Māori Mental Health Research Emerging Leader Fellowship: mid-career researchers who have completed four to eight years of postdoctoral research, and have a demonstrated track record and potential for leadership in Māori mental health, are invited to apply for funding of up to $300,000 (exclusive of GST) for salary, salary associated costs and research expenses. The duration of the fellowship is up to two years.

Applications to this RFP will be submitted via a one-stage process. Applicants are firstly required to submit a Registration via HRC Gateway (the HRC’s online application system). Registrations are due by 1pm, Tuesday 26 February 2019. The full application will need to be submitted via HRC Gateway by 1pm, Tuesday 26 March 2019.

Please refer to the RFP for more information. The RFP, application forms and application guidelines are available on HRC Gateway
