The NN/LM PNR is very pleased to announce a new suite of funding opportunities!

Per feedback from a network member questionnaire conducted last summer, you told us ways that NN/LM PNR funding could be used to expand health information services in your organizations or communities. We were delighted to hear some great ideas. Several are listed below, including a link to the type of award most appropriate for the activity:

The above examples are shared to inspire you and encourage you!

So, if you are a network member in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon or Washington and have a good idea for a new project or service, we encourage you to check out our funding opportunities .

If you plan on submitting a proposal, please send a brief statement of intent to apply to nnlm@uw.edu no later than February 13, 2014. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

RML Rendezvous Special Edition: “Get Ready, Get Set, Write a Proposal!”

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

January 30, 2014 at 1 PM Pacific (noon Alaska 2 PM Mountain)

Have you ever thought about applying for an NN/LM PNR funding award? If so, join us on Thursday, January 30 at 1pm Pacific Time for an RML Rendezvous “Special Edition” webinar. You’ll hear from Cathy Burroughs, NN/LM PNR Associate Director, about the newest array of funding opportunities from the NN/LM PNR. Then, Susan Barnes, Assistant Director of the NN/LM Outreach Evaluation Resource Center, will review the five criteria for a good project plan that are key to a good proposal. Also, we will look at how successful funded projects from the Pacific Northwest Region meet these criteria, review some quantitative and qualitative methods for collecting data, and talk about some examples of evaluating training quality. With these tips in mind, you too can write a proposal for NN/LM funding!

If you are unable to tune in live, we invite you to view a recording of the webcast, posted to the Rendezvous website later.

Due to a recent Adobe Connect system update, please test your computer ahead of time to help avoid technical difficulties as a plugin may be needed.

As part of our Federal agency services regarding electronic and information technology resources being accessible to people with disabilities, closed captioning is available on this and future RML Rendezvous webcasts.
