Many grantees, especially smaller, non-academic organizations, often lack evaluation experience but are required to submit evaluation plans to foundations that include outcome measures and monitoring activities.

NYHealth 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 Phase 1 and 2, NYHealth continued to provide technical assistance for new grantees and applicants in 2011 and 2012 through a grant awarded to New York University School of Medicine.

Outcomes and Lessons Learned

Phase 3:

  • Held evaluation technical assistance workshops;
  • Conducted one-hour consultations with all new grantees who were candidates for the evaluation workshops; and
  • Customized technical assistance to grantees.

Phase 4:

  • Provided individualized assistance to 15 organizations;
  • Conducted two workshops, one in the fall and the other in the spring, for continuous support; and
  • Worked with NYHealth staff to better integrate this toolkit in the grantmaking process.
