    Hello all, 

    The CSWE Public Policy Initiative (PPI) wanted to share the below funding opportunity from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).  The PPI is able to provide high-level context about this opportunity.

    PCORI has issued a funding opportunity on high-impact research studies on COVID-19.  The PCORI Funding Announcement (PFA) identifies three priority research tracks:

    • Adaptations to healthcare delivery;
    • Impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations; and
    • Impact of COVID-19 on healthcare workforce well-being, management, and training.

    Proposals outside of those tracks are also allowed.  The objectives of this announcement are to strengthen the understanding of different approaches to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on individuals, communities, healthcare providers, and healthcare systems; and provide evidence to inform clinical and public health responses, decision making, and planning.  PCORI encourages the use of diverse methods, including interventional studies and the use of natural experiments, to conduct research on an accelerated timeline.

    Full applications are due May 26, 2020, by 5:00 PM ET.

    The full funding opportunity can be found at
