PCORI today opened a funding cycle that includes nine PCORI Funding Announcements (PFAs) on broad and targeted research topics, large clinical trials, methodology studies, and implementation projects. The deadline for Letters of Intent is October 5. Engagement Award Funding Announcements are also open, with an October 1 deadline for Letters of Intent.


  • A set of Targeted PFAs seeks high-quality comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) studies on three high-burden topics: treatments for migraine prevention, healthy aging, and fractures in individuals with osteoporosis.


  • Our Phased Large Awards for Comparative Effectiveness Research PFA offers funds to support large, multiphase CER studies designed to fill critical gaps in evidence and support healthcare decision making.


  • Five funding opportunities encompassing broad CER research areas and methods are part of this current cycle. The Broad PFAs include new special areas of emphasis: telehealth for chronic disease management among vulnerable populations and addressing systemic racism, discrimination, and bias in healthcare systems and healthcare delivery; however, applications may also address other topics.


Letters of Intent for all the above PFAs are due October 5. Additional information is available in the newly published blog.
