Evaluation Technical Assistance for NYSHealth Grantees and Applicants: Phase 3
December 2, 2011
WebsiteSEE GRANT OUTCOMES
NYSHealth recognized that many of its grantees could benefit from technical assistance with the evaluation aspects of their projects in addition to the direct grant support for their projects.
Under Phase 1 and 2 of this grant, the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) provided direct, one-on-one assistance to grantees; held upstate and downstate workshops for grantees; and offered one-on-one follow-up assistance to workshop participants. Because of the success of the Phases 1 and 2, NYSHealth continued to provide technical assistance for new grantees and applicants in 2011 and 2012.
Phase 3 built on the success of the previous technical assistance grants. Activities included providing: 1) evaluation technical assistance workshops; 2) a one-hour consultation with all new grantees that were candidates for the evaluation workshops; 3) providing a consultation to new grantees within one month of the award; and 4) customized technical assistance to grantees. One workshop was refined to focus on two sessions that were especially popular: evaluating partnerships and advocacy efforts. The one-hour consultations and the workshops both set the stage for ongoing assistance.
