Health Care Delivery And Policy Research Contracts


Please note: This program is on hold and not accepting applications.

Investigators funded by the National MS Society’s Health Care Delivery and Policy Research (HCDPR) program study issues of health care access and quality to improve care for people with MS. This program aims to provide results that can be influential in improving government and private sector policies, service and benefit programs nationwide. The HCDPR program offers multi-year contracts to health services investigators to support projects that address current priorities in the organization, funding, quality, outcomes, and costs of MS care.

Each year, contract requests-for-proposals (RFPs) are distributed, with an invitation to prospective applicants to submit brief letters-of-intent. Letters are screened by an expert, independent peer review committee. On this basis, selected organizations are invited to submit full proposals.

Proposal submission and deadline

To submit a proposal for research support, investigators must first register with our Apply Online site ( and complete a pre-application. Staff will review the pre-application to determine whether the research plan is appropriate and relevant to our goals.

Deadline: ON HOLD
