Pilot Study Grant Award Application Opportunity for VISN 16 and 17 Researchers

Pilot studies are a foundation for supporting large-scale, federally funded research. Our Pilot Study Research Program is a great opportunity for investigators who are interested in pilot funding for studies that aim to improve Veterans’ access to high quality mental health and substance use treatment services.

This program is intended to increase both the quantity and quality of research studies that help us better understand the experiences of rural and other Veterans who face barriers to accessing treatment. It also supports the development and dissemination of evidence-based practices that can make a difference in Veterans’ lives.

Researchers in VISN 16 and those located in San Antonio or Dallas, Texas (VISN 17) are invited to apply for a pilot study grant. We accept applications four times a year. Visit to download the request for applications to apply. The next deadline to submit a proposal is October 1, 2019.
