One grant is available to a USA or territories national organization representing governors and their staff to assist in governing and developing policy within their regions and to promote mutually beneficial interaction and activities between States and territories, particularly in the area of health care. The grantee will assist governors and key policy staff to develop and implement innovative solutions to governance and policy development in their jurisdictions.
As such, the awardee will be expected to facilitate partnerships across the state to include local government entities, stakeholders in various regions and across health care systems and health professional disciplines. The National Forum shall include initiatives where success is measurable and significant, the results are reproducible, the efforts are sustainable, and the approach cost effective.
This opportunity facilitates State and territorial decision-makers' ability to carry out initiatives that support the development and implementation of strategies related to health workforce issues, health systems, and access to healthcare. The National Forum program will address the three core functions related to the program goals and expectations: (1) facilitate collaboration among states, territories, Federal partners and other key stakeholders to achieve common goals; (2) encourage integration of public health practice, primary care delivery systems and public health infrastructures; and (3) identify and disseminate best practices and lessons learned to other states and territories.
Applicants must outline specific activities under each required core function targeted to strengthening the organizational capacities of state and local health departments, their political subdivisions, and HRSA awardees to improve health and achieve health equity for the communities they serve.
