This PCORI Engagement Award Program Funding Announcement will open on Jan. 16.

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) plans to award up to $25 million in fiscal year 2025 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 comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) enterprise. (Previous funding announcements used the term PCOR/CER.) 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 actively communicate pertinent PCORI-funded research findings to their specific audiences, including 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.
