The Project Research Online Database

(formerly Grants On-Line Database or GOLD)


The Project Research Online Database (formerly Grants On-Line Database or GOLD) is a searchable database of more than 6,000 grants funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), as well as more than 300 working papers authored by AHRQ grantees. Users can search by project focus area (e.g., patient safety, prevention, health information technology, etc.), keyword, State, grant number, and other variables.

Each of the entries in this database presents a descriptive abstract about the project and provides information about the performing institution and principal investigator, the relevant AHRQ research portfolio or program, first-year funding amount, project start and completion dates, and whether or not the project was funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.


The database allows users to tailor their searches to suit their interests and to download/print project abstracts and working papers, as needed.


This AHRQ database is particularly useful for potential grant applicants to help them understand the types of projects the Agency funds. Clinicians, researchers, educators, and other individuals can use it in their online research into particular research topic areas, and organizations that may be interested in collaborating with AHRQ can use this database to find out more about the Agency’s research funding priorities.
