Organization

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is the lead agency charged with supporting research designed to improve the quality of health care, reduce its cost, improve patient safety, decrease medical errors, and broaden access to essential services.

AHRQ awards discretionary grants, cooperative agreements, and contracts to carry out research projects, demonstrations, evaluations, and dissemination activities. AHRQ's research projects examine the availability, quality, and costs of healthcare services; ways to improve the effectiveness and appropriateness of clinical practice, including the prevention of disease; and other areas of health services research, such as services for persons with HIV infection. The information helps healthcare decision makers, patients and clinicians, health system leaders, and policymakers make more informed decisions and improve the quality of healthcare services.

AHRQ also supports small grants, conference grants, and training through dissertation grants, National Research Service Awards, and career development awards.

Treemap

A treemap is a chart resembling the concentric circles of a “tree trunk,” that compares FY 2013 and FY 2012 non-discretionary grant program awards by Grantee Type, Grantee Class and Award activity, and displays grant information in several ways. It shows the number of dollars awarded for a type of grant in a fiscal year, the proportion of dollar awards for the type of grant in the current fiscal year, and how much the award dollar value changed from the previous fiscal year.

Closed-ended entitlement program - A type of non- discretionary grant program where the award amount constitutes an upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government may pay for allowable programmatic activities.

Open-ended entitlement program - A type of non- discretionary grant program where, based on compliance with programmatic requirements, e.g., provision of specified services to eligible beneficiaries, the OPDIV is required to reimburse the recipient (generally a state) for all or a portion of eligible costs and there is no upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government will pay for allowable services and activities (as specified in the governing statute and implementing regulations).
