RFP Due Date for GTE is Nov 2nd

Oct 16, 2015

We are pleased to announce that the Virginia General Assembly has continued its appropriation for this important vehicle for geriatrics workforce development. The proposal due date for the GTE initiative is Monday, November 2nd at 11:59 PM.

More about GTE and a list of past awards
Virginia institutions of higher education, community-based organizations, and other not-for-profit groups with a strong history of adult and aging-related experience may apply for GTE funds. GTE funds are intended for workforce training and education initiatives that can be completed within the fiscal year. Applications for training projects, conferences, or similar educational programs are appropriate. Applicants may seek GTE awards in any amount from $1,000 to $25,000, as long as this request is clearly justified. We will make awards until such time as the appropriation from the General Assembly has been fully allocated to successful applicants.
We appreciate your interest in geriatrics education in Virginia and look forward to receiving your proposals.
