NVHR Hepatitis C Project Booster Mini Grants
2016 Request for Funding Proposal
Read the original post here.
The National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR) is offering program booster mini grants for one (1) year to NVHR member organizations working on hepatitis C education, screening and linkage to care activities. Three to six awards will be given ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 each.
In order to qualify for this award, applicants must:
- Demonstrate that they have an active project focusing on hepatitis C education, screening and linkage to care activities.
- Be current NVHR members or a coalition with at least one NVHR member. Applicants can join NVHR by visiting our website at www.nvhr.org/join. Organizations must become NVHR members by February 5, 2016 in order to qualify.
- Have the capacity to directly implement the proposal, collect data as required, provide written reports, and manage the funds appropriately.
- Submit a project narrative and work plan to be evaluated by a grants committee composed of representatives from NVHR member organizations not applying for grants.
- Be a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (programs with an appropriate fiscal sponsor are acceptable).
The main purpose of this RFP is to enhance the capacity of NVHR members and partners to conduct hepatitis C education, testing and linkage to care in their local communities. The emphasis of this RFP is on baby boomers (those born from 1945 – 1965) and other persons at risk for hepatitis C.
Applicants should request support for an activity or activities that will leverage or build upon an existing program or project aimed at increasing hepatitis C testing and/or linkage to care. These grants are intended to identify and bolster best practices in hepatitis C testing/linkage to care and to build community and coalition among organizations and individuals engaged in such efforts. Grantees will be expected to evaluate their projects, submit final reports to NVHR, and present their findings on a webinar.
Examples of proposals may include, but are not limited to:
- Hiring an intern to do community outreach to engage other organizations in a local or regional coalition
- Sending a staff member to receive training in grant writing or hepatitis C care from Project ECHO
- Partnering with a national non-profit organization to train community health workers
- Convening a regional or statewide meeting to discuss strategies for linkage to care
Funds may not be used to purchase awareness/educational materials or testing kits. These items should be leveraged from other partner organizations (e.g., local health departments). NVHR will provide technical assistance in efforts to secure materials and/or testing kits, if needed.
