Aligning Systems for Health Rapid-Cycle Research and Evaluation Grants

Georgia Health Policy Center, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis

The Aligning Systems for Health program will provide grants for research projects that focus on learning about effective ways to align healthcare, public health, and social services to better address health equity and the goals and needs of communities. Funds will support rapid‐cycle research and evaluation projects that examine cross‐sector alignment efforts already underway. In this funding round, research projects that explore how cross‐sector alignment and its constructs might be measured are considered a priority.

Preference may be given to project teams that include individuals from underrepresented groups, including African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, individuals with disabilities, and people from rural areas.

The overall goals of the program are:

  • Synthesizing existing research learnings and making actionable results available through multiple channels for targeted audiences
  • Supporting original research and evaluation
  • Building relationships with those already working in the field, including the assembly and engagement of an expert technical advisory committee and the development of an alignment learning system

Preference will be given to applicants that are either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations or Type III supporting organizations. Applicants must be based in the United States or its territories.
