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 a technical assistance initiative that offers additional assistance in strengthening the evaluation aspects of grantee projects. With funding from NYHealth, the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine evaluation team has provided direct assistance to selected grantees, held training workshops for grantees, and created an online evaluation resource to be used by potential NYHealth applicants. With a Phase 4 grant from NYHealth, the evaluation program continued to build on the success of the previous grants.

The evaluation program continued to hold evaluation technical assistance workshops; Workshop A occured in fall 2012 to capture recent grantees and Workshop B took place in spring 2013 when grantees were ready for advanced evaluation topics. The program also continued one-hour consultations with all new grantees who were candidates for the evaluation workshops. Following each workshop, the evaluation team reached out to interested grantees to review the type of assistance needed. A total of 15 organizations received this individualized assistance during the grant period. Finally, the online evaluation toolkit developed in Phase 2 was promoted to potential NYHealth applicants and current grantees. The NYU team also worked with NYHealth staff to better integrate this toolkit into its grantmaking process.
