Agency for Health Care Policy and Research


This notice is to inform the research community that the Agency for

Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) will not accept applications

for National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional training

grants (T32) on January 10, 1997 as stated in the Program

Announcement (PAR-95-002) "NRSA Fellowships - Institutional Grants

Policy and Guidelines,"NIH Guide, Vol. 23, No. 36, October 14, 1994.

The purpose of the NRSA program is to help ensure that adequate

numbers of highly trained individuals are available to carry out the

Nation's health services research agenda.  AHCPR plans to accept NRSA

applications in September 1997, contingent upon publication of an

AHCPR RFA in the spring of 1997 for the support of training programs.

The RFA will encourage greater emphasis on issues relevant to the

changing health care delivery system identified in the Institute of

Medicine report "Health Services Research:  Work Force and

Educational Issues," and by the National Advisory Council on Health

Care Policy, Research, and Evaluation, and by others.  Grants enable

eligible institutions to develop or enhance research training

opportunities for individuals seeking to prepare for careers in

conducting health services research which systematically examines the

organization, provision, and financing of health care services.

AHCPR currently supports 22 institutional programs.  Grant support

for each of these is scheduled to expire either in the summer of 1998

or 1999.  It is the intent of AHCPR to honor all continuation

commitments, to the extent feasible, during the transition period.
