Funding Announcement: Deadline Approaching

Hello everyone,

We want to announce that we are re-establishing our time line for funded projects. Because of our new contract we are advancing the solicitation of funded projects. The time line is being changed so that project performance periods will coincide with our own fiscal year. The plan is to have funded projects being May 2012. In order to do that we are announcing the RFPs now.

As in the previous years our funded projects fall into

1. Express Outreach Awards
2. Health Information Outreach Subcontracts
3. Knowledge Management Pilot Sites Funding.

The full solicitations are available on our funding page. This year we are asking proposal submitters to notify NER of your intent to submit a proposal. This helps give us an idea of the proposals to expect and we can notify the COIs and organize the appropriate reviewing teams.
