Smaller, nonacademic organizations often lack the experience, time, and resources needed to conduct and implement evaluations that are critical to effective program execution and sustainability.

To address this need among its own grantees, NYHealth began funding in 2008 a technical assistance initiative that offers additional support in strengthening the evaluation aspects of grantee projects. With funding from NYHealth, the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine has provided direct assistance to selected grantees, held training workshops for grantees, and created an online evaluation toolkit to be used by potential NYHealth applicants and current grantees. Through continued support from NYHealth, the evaluation technical assistance program has built on the successes of previous years. In 2020, NYHealth awarded NYU a grant to continue this initiative for NYHealth grantees.

Under this grant, NYU held two virtual evaluation technical assistance workshops for new NYHealth grantees. As a result of ongoing office closures because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2021, NYU also adapted its successful program to a remote environment, offering content through monthly, interactive webinar learning sessions. The workshops covered a range of topics, including developing a logic model; designing and implementing a process evaluation; developing an outcome evaluation strategy; developing a survey plan; coding and analyzing qualitative data; and identifying and using secondary data. After each monthly session, NYU hosted open “office hours” virtual sessions to further troubleshoot grantees’ technical assistance questions. Following each webinar, the evaluation team also reached out to interested grantees to review their needs and offer customized technical assistance.
