Local Forum RFP is Open Through January 11, 2019

CPAA released a Request for Proposals (RFP) on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, to identify local forums. The mission of these forums is to identify local health priorities, adopt shared regional priorities, particularly those in the CPAA Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP), that align with the local action agenda, align activities between stakeholders, and implement local action.

CPAA will select and award 7 applicants for the 2019 calendar year. Additional funding may be made available in years 2020-2021 to the selected local forums. CPAA has budgeted $25,198 annually per local forum (one per county) to host regular local forum meetings in 2019 to bring together diverse sectors and identify local health improvement strategies.
