Center Offers New Mini-Grant Program

The Center for Sharing Public Health Services (“Center”) has up to five mini-grants available for public health agencies or their designated agents that wish to explore, plan, implement or improve some aspects of a cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) arrangement. Eligible CJS arrangements must include a minimum of three jurisdictions of any size, or two jurisdictions if the combined population is 50,000 or greater.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis starting on February 15 until June 10, 2016, or until all five grants are awarded, whichever comes first. The amount of each award will be up to $10,000 for a project period of up to six months. Selected teams are expected to work with Center staff, who will provide technical assistance during the implementation of the projects, and to be available to share the results and lessons learned from their projects with appropriate audiences. Priority for funding will be given to proposals that address specific areas of learning described in the Call for Proposals.

Funding for this initiative is provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The Center will provide technical assistance to the funded projects’ teams. The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) will be the Center’s administrative partner for this effort, and will award and administer the grants.
