Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Implementation and Impact Measurement ProgramDeadline: October 20, 2015
Cross-jurisdictional sharing in public health is defined as the deliberate exercise of public authority to enable collaboration across jurisdictional boundaries to deliver essential public health services. Up to seven teams engaged in public health cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) implementation efforts will be funded to participate in a CJS Implementation and Impact Measurement Program and to receive technical assistance related to both project implementation and impact measurement. Teams funded through this program will implement a CJS agreement that involves service-related arrangements, shared functions with joint oversight, or regionalization. Teams will also engage in activities to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of CJS efforts. Funded projects will require analyses using specific measures collected at multiple points.
Amount: $75,000 each for up to 7 grant awards.
Eligibility: CJS arrangements must include a minimum of three contiguous jurisdictions of any size, or two contiguous jurisdictions if the combined population is 50,000 or greater. The applicant organization must either represent an existing multi-jurisdictional collaboration or be a stand-alone entity operating for, or on behalf of, multiple jurisdictions (such as a multi-jurisdictional or regional health department) and must deliver public health programs, services or functions. The applicant organization must be located in the United States or its territories. The applicant organization must be a state or local government agency, a tribal group recognized by the U.S. federal government, or a nonprofit organization that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.
Note: There will be a webinar on September 8, 2015 at 11:30 am MST for interested applicants.
