Grants to USA researchers, nonprofits, and for-profits for high-value research projects to improve the healthcare system. Funding is intended for innovative research with the potential to have a positive impact at the policy level through improved and expanded insurance and access to services, and by reducing spending.
Purpose: To support innovative research that will advance the existing knowledge base in the areas of health care financing, delivery, management and/or policy. Studies must have strong potential to yield insights that can be used to have a positive impact on the U.S. health care system by reducing spending, improving quality of care, and/or expanding access to insurance coverage and health care services.
Allowable direct costs include salaries and fringe benefits for project personnel and the direct cost of data, supplies, other incidental expenses and any subcontracts required to conduct the project. Domestic travel for the purpose of sharing results with policymakers and researchers at professional conferences and other venues is a permissible expense. Costs for items such as rent, utilities and other costs of doing business must be included as part of overhead and not billed separately as a direct cost. Indirect costs (overhead) are limited to 12 percent of the budget, excluding any subcontracts. Your expected overhead charges (up to the 12 percent limit) should be included in the anticipated budget figure that you provide as part of the initial letter of inquiry.

Projects that can be completed within one year (2020) are preferred, but studies requiring a longer timeframe may be proposed. Applicants with longer-term studies should consider the feasibility of organizing their work so as to yield interim findings and products that will maximize study impact. Projects would normally begin in January 2020 unless there is a reason to delay the start (e.g., availability of data or key personnel).
