Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA investigators at tax-exempt research institutions for research related to healthcare. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Under this grant program, researchers will partner with healthcare service providers to test promising strategies that organizations can readily use to improve the value of the healthcare they provide to patients and communities.

Eligible topics include studies that focus on improving value through promising strategies using one or more of these approaches:

  • Test models of care, coverage or system change that seek to improve value by addressing one or more of the symptoms of low value (for symptoms of low value, see the URL for Full Text)
  • Reduce routine treatments, tests, and screenings for patients for whom the potential harms (including financial harm) outweigh potential benefits
  • Provide tools to help consumers make decisions about their healthcare based on value, including the cost of care to patients, in addition to other patient-centered factors
  • Promote conversations between patients and their clinicians and care teams about preferences and trade-offs related to alternative treatment options and /or out of pocket cost burden to patients and families
  • Test interventions geared to reducing racial and ethnic disparities through the provision of higher value healthcare

Grant funds may be used to support the following:

  • The principal investigator’s salary (consistent with the applicant institution’s policy), project staff salaries, and employee benefits
  • Data processing expenses, and other direct expenses including equipment and research participant expenses
  • Appropriate expenses of the partnering organization to facilitate their support of the research; and costs associated with disseminating research findings. 

The majority of the expenses are expected to support the research study.
