WWE mini-grant RFA announcement - Walk with Ease

The Osteoarthritis Action Alliance (OAAA) is pleased to release a Request for Applications for a new cycle of WALK WITH EASE EXPANSION GRANTS. Funding support for this effort is provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Arthritis Project.

OAAA is conducting this mini-grant initiative to support expanded dissemination and delivery of the evidence-based, cost effective, and arthritis-appropriate Walk With Ease (WWE) programs. Over the next 5 years, we will extend WWE by reaching a minimum of 25 states that will embed the delivery of the programs and develop models for sustainability and ongoing funding.

This year, OAAA anticipates awarding up to 12 grants for up to $5,000 each, with a project period of up to one year. Funds may be used for instructor training fees, purchase of workbooks, printing of marketing materials (e.g., brochures, posters), pedometers and for administrative costs (staff support at no more than 10% time) in managing the mini-grant project. Grantees in the 2017 cycle are NOT eligible.

Informational Webinar: July 19, 2017, 12:00PM ET

Members of the OAAA staff team, Dr. Mary Altpeter and Serena Weisner, will host a live webinar to provide a brief overview of the WalkWith Ease program and requirements, followed by guidance on the online application process including the grant goals, budget, and more related to this funding opportunity. There will be an FAQ session at the end of the webinar. Please send any initial questions tomary_altpeter@unc.edu. Questions will be incorporated into the webinar presentation or compiled as a part of the FAQ. The webinar is FREE; please follow this link to learn more and register.
