The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites grant applications for research on chronic insomnia disorder.  This announcement is made together with 3 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Insomnia disorder affects approximately 10 percent of adults in the United States and results in decreased work and academic performance, increased risk of accidents and depression and other mental disorders, and increased health care costs.  The purpose of this announcement is to encourage research on the disorder.
