Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services, led by the Georgia Health Policy Center and supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, released a competitive call for proposals for research studies today.
The call seeks to strengthen the evidence base around approaches and conditions that foster cross-sector alignment of health care, public health, and social services to better address the goals and needs of the people and communities they serve.
A distinguishing focus of this research grant program is the opportunity to explore, test, and refine the theory of change for cross-sector alignment, which includes four core components: shared purpose; shared data and measurement; sustainable financing with appropriate incentives and accountability; and structured governance with leadership and supportive workforce and roles.
Research can take many forms, but may address:
- The four core components of cross-sector alignment
- Factors interacting with the core components that promote or inhibit cross-sector alignment
- Outcomes resulting from cross-sector alignment
Proposals can range from $100,000 to $400,000 for projects lasting up to 24 months.
An optional applicant webinar will be held on Nov. 8, 2019 at 3 p.m. ET. Registration is required.
Brief proposals are due on Nov. 22, 2019 at 3 p.m. ET. For more information on the funding opportunity, please click here.
