The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) will release its COVID-19 Targeted PCORI Funding Announcement (PFA) on May 5, 2020

This new research funding announcement has an accelerated timeline to support innovative, high-impact studies that fit clearly within our core mission of patient-engaged and patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research with up to $30 million funds available. The objectives of this announcement are to strengthen the understanding of different approaches to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on individuals, communities, healthcare providers, and healthcare systems; and provide evidence to inform clinical and public health responses, decision making, and planning. 

This funding announcement’s three targeted priority areas are:

  • Adaptations to healthcare delivery
  • Impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations
  • Impact of COVID-19 on healthcare workforce well-being, management, and training
