CRICO’s RFA Grant Program

It is a long-standing practice of CRICO’s to reinvest in our insured providers by inviting them to submit grant proposals through an annual Request for Applications (RFA) grant program. Broadly, this program supports the identification, evaluation, and implementation of patient safety solutions aligned with identified areas of medical malpractice risk.

If you are involved in an active RFA, find our RFA application process on our Grants RFA Details page. This program is open to all CRICO member organizations and clinicians and employees at these institutions may apply.
