Smaller, nonacademic organizations often lack the experience, time, and resources needed to conduct and implement evaluations that are critical to effective program execution and sustainability.

To address this need among its own grantees, NYSHealth began funding in 2008 a technical assistance initiative that offers additional support in strengthening the evaluation aspects of grantee projects. With funding from NYSHealth, the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine has provided direct assistance to selected grantees, held training workshops for grantees, and created an online evaluation toolkit to be used by potential NYSHealth applicants and current grantees. Through continued support from NYSHealth, the evaluation technical assistance program has built on the successes of previous years. In 2021, NYSHealth awarded NYU a grant to continue this initiative for NYSHealth grantees.

Under this grant, NYU will provide evaluation technical assistance workshops for grantees on a range of topics, including developing a logic model; designing and implementing a process evaluation; developing an outcome evaluation strategy; and coding and analyzing qualitative data. As a result of ongoing office closures because of the COVID-19 pandemic, NYU will continue to offer workshop content through monthly, interactive webinar learning sessions. All participants will receive evaluation workshop presentations and other resources in an electronic format. It will reach out to all new NYSHealth grantees to schedule a consultation. The evaluation team will also provide ongoing enhanced technical assistance to interested grantees, offering customized support, depending on grantee needs.
