Grants and Contracts Details


1. Objective The University of Kentucky Center for Poverty Research (UKCPR) proposes the establishment of a research program to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Institutions of Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans (EEHAs) on awareness of the Medicare Part D program among minority populations. This program, which will run from September 15,2006 through September 14, 2007, is to be a cooperative endeavor between UKCPR and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Funding for the program is requested from ASPE as a supplemental grant to the core FY2006 budget for UKCPR. The total budgetary request is $150,000, inclusive of the negotiated off-campus indirect cost recovery rate of 26 percent. Funding from this program will provide critical insights on reasons for nonparticipation in Medicare Part D among eligible minority populations in areas served by HBCU and EEHA institutions.
