Applications for grants are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Grant amounts vary, dependent upon the availability of funds and the number of approved applications.
A committee reviews submitted proposals that meet eligibility criteria and determines which applications are approved. Proposals for federal funding will be submitted to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for its approval.

This committee currently includes:
• Executive Director, OHCQ
