Invitation to Apply – 2019 Cohort

Due to alicew@unc.edu by 5 p.m. local time on February 4, 2019

Implementing the transformed Title V Block Grant is no easy task; from state action plans to ESMs, there are numerous challenges to navigate. Do you have a particular problem or challenge that could benefit from an expert eye? Have you been struggling to navigate all of the transformations happening in health and health care? Do you have a “wicked” problem or complex challenge that might benefit from ongoing support? This opportunity provides support to tackle a challenge of your choice with some guidance and structure.

The National MCH Workforce Development Center invites state/jurisdictional Title V agencies to submit applications for its upcoming Cohort learning opportunity. Accepted teams will participate in an 7-month Cohort with five other state/jurisdictional teams, during which time the Center will support their work on an existing (or planned) project as a way to increase workforce skills and capacity.

While health transformation projects can be complex, our application process is not! You will submit a two-page project description and identify team members by February 4, 2019 at 5:00 pm. We will follow up with a one-hour exploratory telephone call to complete the process.

If you need ideas, the Appendix provides a list of the Cohort 2017 projects, accomplishments, workforce tools and the training curriculum.

Interested applicants can attend an optional informational call.  The call will be held January 7, 2019 from 3 to 4 pm EST. No pre-registration is required; dial 888-363-4735, code 6600416.

Please reach out to Amy Mullenix at amy_mullenix@unc.edu or 919-843-4457 if you have questions or would like to talk about your ideas before applying.
