Grant Description
Grants to USA researchers, healthcare professionals, and teams affiliated with qualified institutions to address disparities related to kidney health. Eligible uses of funding include salaries, benefits, equipment, supplies, publications, consortium costs, contract services, and travel expenses. The application must seek to improve access to kidney care, kidney disease management, and patient outcomes.

NKF seeks proposals that are primed to influence health equity related to kidney health at a community level. If successful, projects would have a measurable impact in preventing, reducing, or eliminating kidney health disparities and advancing health equity in local communities or populations at risk for and overburdened with kidney diseases. Ideas can include, but are not limited to, addressing solutions to any of the following areas of focus:

  • Access to kidney care
  • Gaps in education, understanding, and/or awareness of kidney disease
  • Access to kidney transplantation
  • Improving rates of home dialysis utilization
  • Quality of life of people living with kidney disease
  • Screening and identification of kidney disease
  • Other approaches that address social determinants of health and health disparities among people with kidney disease


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Open to all healthcare professionals, researchers, and multidisciplinary teams affiliated with any health system, academic medical center, FQHC, or any other health care organization in the U.S. serving people with kidney disease.
