Request for Proposals: GIH State Grant Writing Assistance Fund

December 13, 2010

The Affordable Care Act offers a number of funding opportunities to state government agencies to support their efforts to implement the health reform law. Because of budgetary and staffing constraints, however, many states have found it difficult to prepare proposals to access these funds. To address this issue, Grantmakers In Health (GIH), with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, announces the availability of the GIH State Grant Writing Assistance Fund. The fund will provide up to $15,000 in matching funds per state to funders who are interested in offering grant writing support to state government agencies. Please review the complete proposal request before submitting an application.
