Replication Project RFA
Would you like the opportunity to replicate an effective practice in AMCHP's Innovation Station? Consider applying for the Best Practices Technical Assistance Replication Project. Every year, AMCHP grants up to two technical assistance awards of $10,000 each for states to replicate or adapt an existing emerging, promising, or best practice in Innovation Station as part of an overall goal to improve maternal and child health outcomes by sharing effective and promising practices with state and territorial MCH programs. Applications are due to Lynda Krisowaty (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 11:59 p.m. ET on Sept. 15. To learn more about the benefits of participating, watch this video where two previous recipients share their experiences.
