This Engagement Award funding opportunity will open on January 18, 2023.

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) plans to award up to $25 million in fiscal year 2023 as part of the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award Program.

The Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award Program supports projects that encourage active, meaningful involvement of patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders as integral members of the patient-centered outcomes research/comparative clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) enterprise. These awards are for research support projects. This program is not a research funding opportunity.

The Engagement Award: Dissemination Initiative funding opportunity aims to support projects that help organizations and communities plan for or actively bring pertinent PCORI-funded research findings to their specific audiences, including relevant patients, clinicians, communities, and others, in ways that will command their attention and interest and encourage use of this information in their healthcare decision making.
