Regional Planning and
Implementation Grants

On behalf of the Virginia Health Workforce Development Authority (VHWDA), the Virginia Health Care Foundation announces a Request for Proposal for regional planning and implementation grants.   VHCF is managing this process on behalf of the VHWDA.  It will be coordinated with VHWDA and will be separate from VHCF’s grant-making.   A special Ad Hoc Committee of the Virginia Workforce Council has been established to review the concept papers and proposals and make recommendations to the VHWDA.    

The purpose of the Virginia Health Workforce Development Initiative  is to facilitate the development of a competent, quality health workforce that meets the primary healthcare needs of all Virginians.  The initiative is intended to design a statewide health professions “pipeline” and a diverse, well-distributed and adequate workforce.  Click here to download the full RFP.

Any organization(s) interested in applying for a grant, must send a representative to the Pre-Proposal workshop on January 31 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. in Richmond.
