Opportunities in this week's newly released federal grants are as varied as ever. There are several education-related grants, two of which we've highlighted below. You'll also find funding opportunities related to early childhood mental health, aging and mental health, and training primary care physicians to recognize behavioral health issues in relation to the opioid epidemic.
The grant listing also includes lots of financial support for clinical scientists and researchers, especially those working in healthcare. NASA has a couple of opportunities for heliophysics and astrophysics, and the National Archives is offering grants supporting the publishing of historical record.
