The Commonwealth Fund
The Fund aims to promote a high-performing health care system that achieves better access, improves quality, and promotes greater efficiency, particularly for society’s most vulnerable – low-income, the uninsured, minority Americans, young children, and elderly adults. Grants are made in support of independent research on health care issues and to improve health care practice and policy. The Fund’s international program in health policy is designed to stimulate innovative policies and practices in the United States and other industrialized countries. The current grantmaking is focused on: affordable health insurance, health system improvement and efficiency, the international program in health policy and innovation, patient-centered coordinated care, and payment and system reform. The Fund also supports the Picker/Commonwealth Fund long-term care quality improvement program, state health policy and practices, and the fellowship program in minority health policy. Preference is given to proposals that clarify the scope of serious and neglected problems. Also of interest are programs to develop, test, and evaluate the impact of practical, innovative models for addressing such problems; that disseminate proven tools and models of care; and to analyze the impact of policies and trends on well-defined issues. The Foundation prefers applicants submit an online letter of inquiry. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
