Target Population: The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support innovative research to understand factors uniquely associated with the immigration experience that contribute to health disparities or health advantages among U.S. immigrant populations. This includes but is not limited to risk/protective factors associated with immigration processes from influences that push migration from the sending country, through the experience of immigration, to the experience of resettlement, short and long term residence in the U.S. and the process of acculturation that affect the health of U.S. immigrant populations (particularly migrant workers, recent and 1st generation immigrants). For the purposes of this funding announcement, the term "1st generation" refers to people who were born in their native country and relocated to the U.S. The term "2nd generation" refers to the U.S. born children of 1st generation immigrants.
