Funding Announcements

Grant announcements from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality for supporting research to improve the quality, effectiveness, accessibility, and cost effectiveness of health care.

Notice: Reminder to AHRQ Grantees that FY2013 Funds will Expire on September 30, 2018

Notice: NIH and AHRQ Announce Updated Policy for Application Submission

Request for Applications

Requests for Applications (RFAs) are issued to invite grant applications in a well-defined scientific area to stimulate activity in AHRQ programmatic research priority areas. A single application receipt date is specified, and the announcement identifies the amount of funds earmarked for the initiative and the number of awards likely to be funded. Applications are evaluated for responsiveness to the RFA before review. Applications received in response to a particular RFA are reviewed by an appropriate AHRQ Study Section or by a special review group.

All RFAs are published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts.

Program Announcements

Program Announcements (PAs) describe continuing, new, or expanded program interests for which grant or cooperative agreement applications are invited. Applications in response to PAs are reviewed in the same manner as unsolicited grant applications (i.e., by peer review committees of the AHRQ Initial Review Group [IRG]).

All PAs are published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts.
