This notice solicits applications for the Health Workforce Research Center (HWRC) Cooperative Agreement Program. Under this notice, applications are being sought for two separate HWRCs: (1) one focused on health equity in health workforce education and training and will be funded under HRSA’s Title VII authority; and (2) one focused on the behavioral health workforce, and will be funded under SAMHSA’s Title V authority and jointly administered via an Interagency Agreement with HRSA.

Program Purpose:
The overarching purpose of the HWRC Cooperative Agreement Program is to:

  • A. Collect, analyze, and report health workforce program data to the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis and to the public; and
  • B. Provide technical assistance to local and regional entities on the collection, analysis, and reporting of health workforce data.

Through these efforts, the HWRC Cooperative Agreement Program supports and disseminates rigorous and timely research that strengthens evidence-based policy and enhances government’s and the public’s understanding of issues and trends in the health workforce. In this way, HWRC projects help inform health workforce planning and policy at all levels.
