Requests for Proposals

May 2019

New York State Health Foundation (New York, NY)

Funding is now available through a New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) Request for Proposals (RFP): Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Consumer Empowerment and Veterans' Health. Many organizations across the state are doing smart, innovative work that is relevant to NYSHealth's priority area of Empowering Health Care Consumers and its focus area on Veterans' Health. These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at conferences and other convenings in New York and nationally. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so.

Through this RFP, NYSHealth will sponsor community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, state, and national conferences related to these funding areas. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
