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.

For additional information, contact AHCPR Public Affairs: Karen Migdail, (301) 427-1855 or Salina Prasad, (301) 427-1864.
