Request for Applications for Research on Gambling Among Underserved Communities

Application Deadline: January 22, 2024
Funds Available: Up to $172,500
One grant will be awarded

In the USA, racial and ethnic minorities constitute approximately a third of the population and
are expected to become the majority by 2050. Earlier studies have found higher rates of gambling
disorder among people who identify as ethnic and racial minorities and who have high economic
burden. In particular, the expansion of gambling points to a critical need to clarify the prevalence
and impact of gambling disorder on indigenous peoples in the U.S. and Canada. The health
disparities that prevent these groups from receiving treatment needs to be explored, and
culturally appropriate interventions for gambling problems need to be identified. For example,
current endeavors to translate evidence-based strategies for other addictive disorders into Native
American culture could be expanded to include gambling disorder.

The International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG) invites applicants to focus on the
impact of gambling on under-served groups in the U.S. or Canada. Applicants may request up to
$75,000 per year for a two-year Large Grant with no more than 15% of direct costs for Facilities
and Administration. Total requested may not exceed $172,500.
