2019 Transformative Grant Informational Webinars

We will be offering a total of five Transformative Grant informational webinars: Two general overviews about the request for proposals (RFP) as a whole and three which are specific to each Coordinating Center and their focus areas. Can’t make a webinar? Don’t worry, we will record each webinar and house them on this page.

General Overview of the COMPASS Initiative® Transformative Grant

While offering an overview of the COMPASS Initiative® and the three Coordinating Centers, this webinar will focus solely on the Transformative Grant RFP, specifically offering insight into the programmatic focus areas, requirements, submission and review process, and important dates.
