Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Announces Call for Proposals for State Health Access Reform Evaluation
State Health Access Reform Evaluation (SHARE) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that supports rigorous research on health reform issues by investigators representing diverse disciplines and backgrounds. The program particularly seeks to identify and fill gaps in research related to state-level implementation of the Affordable Care Act, with a focus on provisions that are designed to increase access and coverage. SHARE-sponsored research will provide timely guidance on implementation issues as states consider their unique responsibilities in executing the ACA, and will contribute to the evidence base for future state and national health reform efforts.
The State Health Access Data Assistance Center at the University of Minnesota will provide technical support for the program.
Up to $1.5 million in total funding will be available under this call for proposals. There is no predetermined dollar amount for individual grants. Project funding will range from $50,000 to $200,000 to accommodate both quick-turnaround policy analyses of six to twelve months and in-depth research/evaluation studies of twelve to twenty-four months.
Eligible applicants include state agencies and other institutions working to engage or employ independent/academic researchers or policy makers working with researchers. The program especially encourages proposals that enlist junior researchers to collaborate with senior research advisers.
Projects may be generated from any number of disciplines, including health services research, economics, sociology, program evaluation, political science, public policy, public health, public administration, law, and business administration. Preference may be given to applicant entities that plan to utilize interdisciplinary teams.
The complete Call for Proposals and application procedures are available at the RWJF Web site.
