Research Activities, February 2009, No. 368
On January 2, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) issued two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs), both of which update previous program announcements by including new AHRQ portfolio objectives. Applications should focus on identified priority areas in one of the six AHRQ portfolios: value, prevention/care management, health information technology, comparative effectiveness, patient safety, and innovations and emerging issues. These FOAs also reinstitute a budget of up to $500,000 in total annual project costs. The two FOAs are:
- AHRQ Health Services Research Projects (R01): This FOA, PA-09-070, supports large research extramural grants. The first application receipt date is March 9, 2009.
- AHRQ Health Services Research Demonstration and Dissemination Grants (R18): This FOA, PA-09-071, solicits large research demonstration and dissemination projects. The first application receipt date is March 9, 2009.
