Donaghue Foundation Issues RFP for 2017 Greater Value Portfolio Grants

The Patrick and Catherine Weldon Donaghue Medical Research Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for its 2017 Greater Value Portfolio grant program. Through the program, the foundation will award three-, four-, and five-year grants for projects with an innovative approach to achieving a higher-value healthcare system. The goal of the program is to test new approaches and tools that organizations can readily use to improve the value of the health care they provide to their patients and communities.

Eligible topics include strategies that significantly increase the value of traditionally high-cost procedures through mechanisms such as medical tourism or specialty treatment certs; methods or approaches that reduce routine treatments, tests, and screenings for patients for whom the potential harms 9including financial) outweigh potential benefits; efforts to provide consumers with the tools to make decisions about their health care that are based on value in addition to other patient-centered factors; strategies that encourage providers and their patients with serious illness to engage in difficult conversations about preferences and trade-offs related to alternative treatment options; efforts to identify, highlight, and resolve structural disincentives to greater value or inefficiencies with systems or across healthcare settings; the creation of economic models that address current financial disincentives for systemic change (ie., paying for current programs with future savings or paying for social determinants of health with the savings from lower clinical services); and worthy, inexpensive clinical interventions that are currently underused.

Grant Amount: Grant of up to $600,000.

Eligibility: The program is open to investigators at tax-exempt organizations in the United States.

Due Date: Letters of Intent must be received no later than May 1, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by July 31, 2017.

The National Institute of Justice Seeking Applications for Collective Healing Pilot Program

The National Institute of Justice, in collaboration with the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) seeks applications for a single award that will support OVC’s Vision 21: Law Enforcement and the Communities They Serve: Supporting Collective Healing in the Wake of Harm (Collective Healing) Program. The purpose of this award will be to support an initial one-year planning phase to develop comprehensive evaluation options to assess the pilot sites of the Collective Healing program. Results from this evaluation planning phase may lay the groundwork for a possible targeted larger evaluation of the Collective Healing program.

OVC’s Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services Final Report (Vision 21) envisions that “all crime victims in the 21st century can readily access a seamless continuum of evidence-based services and support that will allow them to begin physical, emotional, and financial recovery.” Vision 21 recognizes that there are serious challenges to achieving this goal, particularly in the aftermath of law- enforcement-involved shootings and other high-profile incidents.

The Collective Healing program will:

•assist law enforcement agencies to develop and implement trauma-informed and evidence- based response strategies that promote community engagement and health

•provide comprehensive, expert technical assistance to law enforcement and the communities they serve to promote trauma-informed culture, capacity building, and evidence-based practices to address the impact of trauma and community harm

NIJ is interested in supporting an initial planning phase to develop a future evaluation for the Collective Healing demonstration sites. Research tasks will include, but may not be limited to: developing metrics that sites will need to be part of an evaluation; conducting needs assessments for sites; developing logic models for different evaluation options; and presenting a final report with strengths and weaknesses of each evaluation option to NIJ and OVC at the conclusion of the funding period. Results from the initial assessment may become a precursor to further research and program development work, lay groundwork for a possible larger scale evaluation, and assist with the coordination of extramural and intramural research and evaluation efforts sponsored by NIJ and OVC.

Grant Amount: The grant award is $500,000. NIJ expects that any award under this solicitation will be made in the form of a cooperative agreement, which is a type of award that provides for OJP to have substantial involvement in carrying out award activities

Eligibility: In general, NIJ is authorized to make grants to, or enter into contracts or cooperative agreements with, States (including territories), units of local government, federally recognized Indian tribal governments that perform law enforcement functions (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), nonprofit and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and for profit organizations), institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education), and certain qualified individuals. For-profit organizations must forgo any profit or management fee.

Foreign governments, foreign organizations, and foreign colleges and universities are not eligible to apply.

Current grantees, their contractors, sub recipients, and consultants involved with (whether via paid or unpaid working relationship or engagement) the Vision 21: Law Enforcement and Communities They Serve: Supporting Collective Healing in the Wake of Harm Program are ineligible to apply for this award. NIJ welcomes applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant.

Russell Sage Foundation Seeks Letters of Inquiry for Future of Work Research

The Russell Sage Foundation was established for "the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States." In pursuit of that mission, the foundation now dedicates itself to strengthening the methods, data, knowledge, and theoretical core of the social sciences as a means of diagnosing social problems and improving social policies.

The foundation's program on the Future of Work supports research on the causes and consequences of changes in the quality of jobs for less- and moderately-skilled workers in the United States. The foundation seeks research proposals related to the role of changes in employer practices; the nature of the labor market; and the impact of public policies on the employment, earnings, and the quality of jobs for American workers.

Examples of the kinds of topics and questions that are of interest include but are not limited to changing economies, changing family structure, and policy responses (or lack thereof); the economics of productivity and the role of managerial practices in improving job quality; the causes and consequences of job polarization; and the effects of long-term unemployment and strategies to prevent long-term disadvantage. Priority will be given to analyses of original qualitative and quantitative data sources, and novel uses of existing sources of data to address important questions related to the interplay of market and non-market forces in shaping the well-being of workers, today and in the future.

The foundation encourages methodological variety, but all proposals should have a well-developed conceptual framework and research design. Analytical models should be specified and research questions and hypotheses should be clearly stated. Awards are available for research assistance, data acquisition, data analysis, and investigator time for conducting research and writing up results.
