The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) mission is to produce evidence to make health care safer, higher quality, more accessible, equitable, and affordable, and to work within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and with other partners to make sure that the evidence is understood and used.

AHRQ is focused on these Formal Priorities:
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.
The Total Award Amounts and Award Number chart shows the number of awards and the amount of award dollars in millions that AHRQ granted during the current and previous 5 fiscal years. The number of awards is shown in the blue bars. The award dollars are represented as gold bars. Data for the current fiscal year, at the far right of the chart, are depicted in brighter colors.
