Access to quality health care is essential to good health—and is not possible without affordable, quality health insurance coverage and access to comprehensive, quality health care services and providers.

While there is consensus that more reform is needed to improve the value of the U.S. health care system, how do we get there?

RWJF will support empirical and policy–relevant analyses that can inform strategies to ensure access to high quality, affordable health care and insurance coverage. Priority will be given to research that is timely and will directly inform the policy process.

If you are a researcher—or a practitioner in the public and private sector working with researchers—we invite you to submit a proposal through your organizations.

Purpose

The Foundation’s new Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems (RTHS) call for proposals (CFP) 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 2017 RTHS CFP will focus on empirical and policy–relevant analyses that can inform strategies to ensure access to high-quality, affordable health care and insurance coverage.

Total Awards

  • Up to $600,000 will be available under this CFP.
  • Project funding will range from $50,000 to $150,000 to accommodate studies of 6 to 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.
  • Up to six studies will be funded.
