In April we announced that the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) was releasing its Notice of Funding Opportunity on “Implementing and Evaluating New Models for Delivering Comprehensive, Coordinated, Person-Centered Care to People with Long COVID.” This funding is designed to expand access and care, develop, and implement new or improved care delivery models, foster best practices for Long COVID management, and support the primary care community in Long COVID education.
On September 20, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the AHRQ, announced the grant awards and we are thrilled to share that six of the nine Long COVID clinics to receive this funding are part of our Multi-Disciplinary PASC Collaborative. Each awardee will receive $1 million for up to five years and this grant goes directly to clinics to use at the point of care.
