HHS Region 2:
In a state as large as New York, a steady stream of smart, innovative work is coming from NYSHealth grantees and non-grantees alike that is relevant to NYSHealth’s priority areas of Building Healthy Communities and Empowering Health Care Consumers and its focus area on Veterans’ Health. These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at regional, statewide, and national conferences, meetings, and other convenings. Yet, because of a lack of time and resources, they often are unable to do so.
Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), NYSHealth will sponsor community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences related to building healthy communities, empowering health care consumers, and meeting the needs of returning veterans and their families. NYSHealth will support both organizations already engaged in this work and those new to these fields in New York State.
To be eligible:
- Eligible applicants include health departments, community-based organizations, nonprofits, and other low-resource organizations. Applicants must be affiliated or employed through one of those organizations. Government agencies may apply through their fiduciary agents with nonprofit (501[c] ) status. For-profit organizations are not eligible for funding;
- Eligible applicants do not have to be past or current grantees of NYSHealth;
- Eligible applicants must be located in New York State
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
