Health Center Special Projects Grant Application Now Available Online

1-11-12 Feature Story:

The Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers is pleased to announce the fourth year of its Community Health Center Special Projects Grant, a career development opportunity for health center primary care providers. The CHC Special Projects Grant was developed to assist health centers in the retention of their providers by providing funding to support qualified and approved projects that match both the clinical or career interest of selected providers and the programmatic needs of the health center.

In 2012, the funding made available by this grant will assist up to 12 community health centers in offering paid designated employment time for a primary care provider (or group of providers) to undertake the special projects, mini-fellowships or international health experiences. Under this Request for Proposals (RFP), the League is inviting applications from health center providers and their respective health center employers. The grant maximum is $40,000 and may be used for salary, fringe benefits and tax expenses, and other direct costs of the projects as defined in the RFP. The grant period will be one year and projects, fellowships, and international health experiences need to be initiated and completed during the year (July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013). Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2012.
