AHCPR Receives $125.3 Million in FY 1996 Funding
Press Release Date: April 30, 1996
Congress has passed a fiscal year 1996 (FY 1996) spending bill
that includes $125.3 million for the Agency for Health Care
Policy and Research (AHCPR). The final resolution of the FY 1996
budget allows Agency officials and the health services research
community to proceed with pending projects.
At this level of funding, AHCPR will be able to continue its
support of existing grantees and assure the continued health of
the field by funding some new awards. Decisions on awards will
be announced in mid-May. In addition, AHCPR will restore nearly
half of the reduction in awards made to grantees since September
1995—when AHCPR's FY 1996 funding level was in doubt.
AHCPR also recently has released a number of Request for
Applications, soliciting investigators to: study the
effectiveness and outcomes of hysterectomy, study patient
referrals from primary care to specialty care, and
develop and test new health care quality measures. These awards
will be announced in September 1996.
