Public Policy Research Award

American Lung Association


Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #192057

Grant Description

Grants of $50,000 per year to USA researchers affiliated with a nonprofit institution for studies related to respiratory illnesses. Funding is intended for innovative projects that help detect, prevent, and treat lung disease. The goal of the grant program is to support research on and evaluation of existing public policy and programs, as well as pilot and demonstration projects that inject innovative ideas and provide evidence for the development of new public policies impacting lung health. Preference is given to independent investigators; however, post-doc or other candidates in an appropriately supervised setting will be considered.

Applications must include plans for public dissemination of the work, including information on how to use findings to support and promote important policy changes.

For information about investigational areas of interest, see: https://www.lung.org/getmedia/a90bbc48-8071-418e-9039-3d8542bdba5a/ala-2023-24-public-policy-rfp-and-app-guide.pdf#page=1

No more than 50% of the budget may be used for an awardee's salary and fringe benefits and no more than 30% may be used to fund the purchase of permanent equipment. Funds may be used for the salary and fringe benefits of personnel other than the applicant. Other permitted expenses include the purchase of large data sets.
