Other Cross-Cutting Opportunities

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is sharing a Call for Proposals for Public Health Services and Systems Research (PHSSR).  PHSSR is seeking studies to expand the evidence for administrative and policy mechanisms that improve quality, efficiency and value in public health delivery. Studies funded through this solicitation will focus on multidisciplinary research that examines the organization, financing, delivery and quality of public health services and the subsequent impact on population health outcomes. Approximately $3.2 million will be awarded through this solicitation. Up to nine studies may be selected to receive funding of up to $350,000 to support projects of up to twenty-four (24) months in duration.

The National Network of Public Health Institutes will facilitate this Call for Proposals. A web conference will be held for interested applicants on May 28, 2014. Proposals are due July 23, 2014. Additional information about the web conference and the project can be found on the NNPHI website. Please direct any questions to Emily Patrick at phssr@nnphi.org or 504-224-9043.
