Arthritis Mini Grant: Program-Peer to Peer Leadership

The Rhode Island Department of Health's Arthritis Program is now offering Mini Grants to agencies interested in introducing the evidence-based Chronic Disease Self-Management Program to their communities. The Mini Grants are a total of $2,500 each and require applicants to identify 2 to 4 staff to be trained in June 2016 as Chronic Disease Self-Management Leaders. The grant will also fund a recruitment plan for program participants. This is a short application with a short turn around. The application, scope of work, and a PowerPoint explanation of the program and opportunity can be found attached here and will be due to Jasmine Franco on Wednesday May 25th, 2016.
