After an NYSHealth project has closed, we usually write a grant outcome report to capture the initiative’s impact. With input from the grantee and NYSHealth program staff, grant outcome reports take an honest look back at the program, document the work completed, and share lessons learned, including how we might have better supported our grantee’s efforts.
