NIHCM Foundation: Investigator-initiated Health Services Research Grants

The National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving the U.S. health care system’s effectiveness, efficiency, and quality. Since 2012, the foundation has awarded more than $3.6 million to support innovative health services research in healthcare financing, delivery, management, and policy.

The foundation invites letters of inquiry for the 2022-2023 funding cycle of its investigator-initiated research grant program to advance this mission. NIHCM will make up to $500,000 available to new and existing grantees in support of innovative investigator-initiated research with high potential to inform improvements to the U.S. healthcare system. Projects must advance the existing knowledge base healthcare financing, delivery, management and/or policy. Priority will be given to research studies that address issues of broad significance for the U.S. healthcare system and that have a high potential to produce timely results and reach key target audiences. Expected project impact is paramount.

Applications are invited from individual researchers and all types of organizations and institutions, including both nonprofit and for-profit entities. Multiple submissions are permitted from a single researcher, organization, or university department.

Brief letters of inquiry are due July 1, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full ten-page proposal, due in September 2022.

Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
