AGENCY FOR HEALTHCARE RESEARCH AND QUALITY (AHRQ)
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) intends to publish a new Request for Applications (RFA) to expand access to comprehensive, coordinated, and person-centered care for people with Long COVID, particularly underserved, rural, vulnerable, or minority populations that are disproportionately impacted by the effects of Long COVID. Through this funding, AHRQ intends to support existing multidisciplinary Long COVID clinics to develop and implement new or improved care delivery models, provide services to more people with Long COVID, expand services offered, strengthen care coordination, implement and share best practices for Long COVID management, support the primary care community with Long COVID education and management, evaluate project success, and disseminate findings.
AHRQ anticipates publishing the RFA in April or May 2023 and making up to $9,000,000 in awards by September 30, 2023. This notice encourages organizations with existing Long COVID clinics and investigators with appropriate expertise and capabilities to begin to consider applying for this RFA.
