The National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving the effectiveness, efficiency, and quality of the U.S. healthcare system. Since 2012, the foundation has made grants to support innovative health services research that advances knowledge in the areas of healthcare financing, delivery, management, and/or policy.
In its next funding round, the foundation will award five or six grants totaling $300,000, with priority given to studies that address issues of broad significance for the national healthcare system and that have high potential to produce timely results and reach key target audiences.
Applications will be accepted from individual researchers as well as from all types of organizations and institutions, including both nonprofit and for-profit entities.
Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than July 10, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by September.
