Evidence for Action funding is dedicated for research projects evaluating the health outcomes of interventions. Specifically, we fund rigorous research designed to assess the causal impact(s) of programs, policies, or practices on health outcomes or of behaviors or other factors that are well-established determinants of health. When evaluating programs, comparative effectiveness trials should be considered when possible. Findings from the evaluation of individual programs should be scalable or generalizable to similar initiatives.
Data, evidence, or metrics developed should be action-oriented and scalable or broadly applicable to improving population health, well-being, or health equity.
