Submit a Proposal to the VHA National Center for Healthcare Advancement and Partnerships

The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) National Center for Healthcare Advancement and Partnerships (HAP) welcomes non-monetary partnership and healthcare advancement proposals that improve Veterans' health. Anyone can share a proposal with HAP using this online resource.

More information on the value of partnerships and partnering with VHA can be found on the HAP resources page.

The HAP office reviews two types of proposals:

  • Non-Monetary Partnership Proposals: an opportunity to engage in a formalized, non-monetary public-private partnership that benefits Veterans and other beneficiaries VA serves.
    • Non-Monetary Partnerships should align with specific objectives and strategies outlined in VA's Strategic Plan (see under "Resources").
  • Healthcare Advancement Initiative (HAI) Proposals: an opportunity to collaborate with VA to deliver an innovative service or resource to Veterans or other VA beneficiaries that directly improves or enhances their physical and mental well-being.
    • At this time, HAP's HAI priority areas include services and resources intended to address:
      • Suicide Prevention
      • Chronic Pain
      • Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
      • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Please Note:

  • Proposal submission is NOT a funding opportunity.
  • HAP does NOT award contracts, provide research grants, or offer other forms of financial support in response to proposal submission.
  • Submitting a proposal to HAP is NOT a substitute when other avenues of engagement with VA are more appropriate, such as a vendor application to the Office of Acquisition and Logistics or joining the Community Care Network.
  • HAP does not lead or establish scientific research studies, please contact your local VA Office of Research and Development to inquire about research opportunities.
