rfapic2The 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 (instructor-led group and self-led individual). 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 20% time) in managing the mini-grant project. Grantees in the 2017 cycle are NOT eligible.
