Russell Sage Foundation (RSF): Inviting applications for ‘grant’ to fund analyses that address the extent to which the ACA has affected outcomes such as financial security and family economic wellbeing, labor supply and demand, family and children’s outcomes, and participation in other social safety net programs.

Funding brief: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 represents the most significant reform of the U.S. health care system in decades. It was enacted to increase access to health insurance, enhance the quality of care and moderate the growth in costs. The law, and recent and proposed changes to the law, are likely to have had far reaching social, economic and political effects beyond their direct effects on health insurance markets and health outcomes. This initiative support social science research on the social, economic and political effects of the ACA.

RSF is especially interested in funding analyses that address the extent to which the ACA has affected outcomes such as financial security and family economic wellbeing, labor supply and demand, family and children’s outcomes, and participation in other social safety net programs. They are also interested in analyses of the political effects of the implementation of the law, including changes in views about government, support for future government policy changes, or the impact on policy development outside of health care.

They do not fund research on the effects of the ACA on health care delivery or health outcomes (e.g., barriers to implementation, changes in the quality of care and health status, or trends in enrollment, access, and affordability) because these issues are priorities for other funders. To date, the following studies have been funded under this initiative: Examples of the kinds of topics and questions that are of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Financial Security and Family Economic Wellbeing
Labor Market Outcomes
Public Program Participation
Family and Children’s Outcomes
Immigrant Outcomes
Effects on Politics, Political Culture, and Public Policy

The foundation only supports projects that further its mission. They provide support primarily for analyzing data and writing up results. However, for projects that address questions of particular importance to the foundation and in which existing data are insufficient, we will consider providing support for new data collection. They are particularly interested in innovative projects that collect or analyze new data to illuminate issues that are highly relevant to the foundation’s program goals. They also encourage projects that are interdisciplinary and combine both quantitative and qualitative research.

RSF rarely considers projects for which the investigators have not already fully-developed the research design, the sample framework, access to data, etc. Investigators are encouraged to submit an LOI after they have developed and pre-tested survey instruments, completed preliminary data analyses if the data are publically-available or conducted some preliminary interviews for qualitative studies.

Projects that use newly-available data or make new linkages across data sources have a higher priority than projects that analyze only public use data from widely available data sets.
