- Adopt strategies for providing FNSS in mass-care settings.

Some Information from Telligen Community Initiatives:

Telligen Community Initiative is interested in soliciting community-based proposals in the areas of:
1) Health access to care for the underserved
2) Health care workforce development initiatives across our two states.

Though funding from Telligen Community Initiative has been available for years, we have a significant increase in funding to solicit both larger grant projects, as well as fund significantly more grants then we’ve historically supported. I was just recently brought on as the initial executive director for Telligen Community Initiative and am excited to share this funding opportunity with you. Please consider how you and your organization might be in a position to develop a proposal. In an effort to help spread the word about this enhanced health funding opportunity, I’d ask if you would consider sharing this with your network and others that you think might be doing work that could fit in these funding priorities. Below offers some additional information and details to consider and how to begin the process of submitting an idea for funding consideration.

Funding source: Telligen Community Initiative

Website: www.telligenci.org This site simply and succinctly lays out the proposal process for this grant cycle and gives you access to the grant application approach and tools to make your project submission.

Funding focus: Our areas of funding interests largely revolve around 1) projects and programs that seek to improve and assure access to quality health access for the underserved and 2) innovative efforts to improve access to and encouragement of students acquiring the skills to successfully address health care workforce development opportunities of all kinds.

Geographic focus: Projects taking place throughout Iowa and Illinois. Applicant determined definition of community that could be as small as a neighborhood or census tract and as large as multi-county or statewide project. Again, the scope is in the hand of the applicant/applicant coalition and their vision for the proposed work.

Grant size and duration: Maximum per grant project award amount of $50,000, though projects of smaller sizes are welcome. Please plan your proposals for a single year project period with a planned grant start date of 1/1/2015.
Deadline: Grant proposals are due to Telligen Community Initiative by July 15, 2014. Additional information on downloadable proposal templates and required attachments for submission is available at www.telligenci.org. Proposal elements should be submitted by simple email ([email protected]) in an effort to facilitate easier grant submission for those developing an application. Proposals can be submitted at any time leading up to the deadline date, but must be submitted electronically by the due date of 7/15/14.
