This Limited PFA seeks to fund implementation projects that incorporate active strategies designed to move comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) evidence developed with PCORI research funding toward practical use in improving health care and health outcomes. This Limited PFA gives PCORI awardees the opportunity, following the generation of results from their PCORI research award, to propose the next step(s) to move their CER findings into practice, drawing on the knowledge and experience they gained during their PCORI research award.

Changes to eligibility criteria and other important updates will be available a minimum of 3 weeks and as early as 8 weeks prior to the public release of the PFA and opening of the online system (see dates below).

Applicants interested in dissemination-focused projects that aim to spread awareness and increase knowledge of PCORI evidence to targeted audiences are encouraged to consider their project’s fit for the Eugene Washington Engagement Award: Dissemination Initiative
