Request for Proposals: State Drug Spending and Pricing Policy Initiatives

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), with support from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, today launched the Center for State Rx Drug Pricing. Building on the work of the Pharmacy Costs Work Group, the Center will provide technical and strategic assistance to states, leverage legal and actuarial expertise as needed, distribute funding to a subset of states, and convene state leaders as part of a work group.

As part of this launch, NASHP is requesting proposals from states for initiatives to develop and implement innovative approaches to contain the costs of prescription drugs. This is a multi-year project to assist state executive, legislative, and independent agencies and offices with prescription drug pricing policies.

Applications are due July 14th. Please send completed Letters of Intent to Corinne Alberts at
