Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Research in Transforming Health and Health Care SystemsDeadline: June 23, 2017
Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems (RTHS) initiative seeks to fund rigorous, empirical studies that evaluate or predict the potential effects of policies or policy changes intended to transform health and health care systems. The RTHS initiative will focus on empirical and policy-relevant analyses that can inform strategies to ensure access to high-quality, affordable health care, and insurance coverage.
Amount: Up to $600,000 is available to fund up to six awards that will range from $50,000-$150,000 to accommodate studies of 6-12 months. Preference may be given to rapid-turnaround projects that can be completed within six months, although the study timeline should be appropriate for the proposed objectives.
Eligibility: Researchers, as well as practitioners in the public and private sector working with researchers, are eligible to submit proposals through their organizations. Projects may be generated from disciplines including health services research, economics, sociology, program evaluation, political science, public policy, public health, public administration, law, business administration, or other related fields. The Foundation may give preference to applicants that are either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations or Type III supporting organizations. Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories.
