The Aligning Systems for Health program will provide grants for research projects that examine how cross-sector alignment between healthcare, public health, and social services, can advance health equity. Grantees are expected to participate both in research dissemination and translation activities. Preference will 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.
