Unsolicited Research Proposals: HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) expects to publish a Notice in the next few months. This upcoming Notice will announce that PD&R has the authority to accept unsolicited research proposals that address current research priorities, and it will provide a general description of the information that should be included in any research proposal. In accordance with statutory requirements, the research proposals must be submitted by eligible applicants and provide cost sharing for at least 50 percent of total project cost from philanthropic entities or Federal, state, or local government agencies. The Department is interested in increasing participation of Minority Serving Institutions of higher education and Historically Black Colleges and Universities in all program areas. Therefore, HUD encourages eligible entities that are not themselves MSIs or HBCUs to develop partnerships with MSIs and HBCUs. HUD anticipates that this upcoming Notice will be similar to the Notice HUD published previously.
