ITAC is pleased to announce that up to four (4) LEND and/or DBP projects are eligible to apply for a maximum of $8,000 each to support the development and implementation of activities between September 15, 2023 and August 31, 2024 that address one of these five LEND/DBP network priority areas of need:
(1) Recruiting and Building a Diverse Workforce
(2) Meaningful Inclusion of People with Lived Experience
(3) Enhancing Training on Health Equity
(4) Building Purposeful Title V Partnerships
(5) Capturing and Sharing Program Impact
All MCHB-funded LEND and DBP awardees are eligible to seek assistance through this process. No more than one request per awardee will be selected to receive assistance. Collaboration between LEND and/or DBP Training Program awardees is encouraged but not required. Multiple LEND and DBP Training Program awardees may collaborate on a request; however, one program site will serve as the lead and enter into an agreement with AUCD. The total allowable reimbursement per application will be up to $8000, even when sites partner with one another. Indirect is allowable if the university or hospital requires it, with an indirect cost cap of 8%.
The application for 2023-2024 is now OPEN. Click here for the application. DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS EXTENDED TO TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2023 AT 11:59 PM ET. Contact Jeanette Córdova ([email protected]) for more information.
The hope is that these projects not only lead to measurable improvements for participating programs, but that their efforts can serve as innovative and resourceful models for other programs to address similar areas of need. See below for a list of current and past projects, and click the cohort year to view additional information, such as products developed and primary contacts.
Since November 2014, ITAC has encouraged project proposals on an annual basis from LEND and DBP programs that wish to receive targeted assistance and funding support to address one of several priority areas of network need.
ITAC carefully reviews each proposal and selects as many programs as possible to participate in each year's cohort. While projects are underway, ITAC facilitates individual and peer-to-peer technical assistance, monitors progress toward planned objectives, responds to grantee inquiries, and creates opportunities to share results across the network.
