Overview


This webinar provided information about a new funding opportunity under the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s  Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems (RTHS) program, managed by AcademyHealth. The RTHS program funds rigorous, empirical studies that evaluate or predict the potential effects of policies or policy changes intended to transform health and health care systems.

The new call for proposals (CFP) will support research studies that evaluate or predict the effects of Medicaid policy changes enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including policies in the American Rescue Plan Act. During this webinar, staff from the Foundation and AcademyHealth provided information about the CFP’s focus and the application process, and answered questions from session participants.
