NCCIH Strategic Plan: 2021-2025

Over the next year, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) will be developing its fifth Strategic Plan, which will guide the Center’s research efforts and priorities over the next 5 years (Fiscal Years 2021–2025). There are many ways to provide input. In addition, the draft Strategic Plan will be made available for review and feedback. 

For updates on the development of the new strategic plan, please subscribe to NCCIH Update.

How to Provide Input

Throughout the year-long strategic planning process, NCCIH is seeking input from its stakeholders through many different channels. We particularly encourage input from the public and will be offering several opportunities for people to contribute their thoughts and feedback. 

Strategic Planning RFI Square

The deadline has passed for the Request for Information: Soliciting Input for the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health’s New Strategic Plan (NOT-AT-20-013). From April 2020 through July 2020, stakeholders were offered several ways to contribute their thoughts and feedback. This included responding to our RFI using a web form or by email, and participating in Town Hall meetings.

There will be additional opportunities to comment on a draft plan.
