The community being served must be involved in the development and ongoing operations of the program, to appropriately address the needs of the population. This is a three-year grant program with maximum individual grant awards of $200,000 a year. A Technical Assistance Webinar will be offered on September 24th, 1 to 2:30 pm ET. All applications are due November 14, 2014.
