In many Louisiana communities, there are critical shortages in the healthcare workforce (general practitioners, dentists, specialists, nurses, mental health providers and other allied health professionals).

The Foundation challenges Louisiana communities to address this major public health concern. They are seeking community-level proposals that build sustainable and lasting solutions for Louisiana’s healthcare workforce shortage.

The ideal project will work within communities to implement comprehensive educational, recruitment and retention efforts to improve the local healthcare workforce. To accomplish this work, the ideal project will include each of the following components in its project design:

Comprehensive Analysis and a Proven Logic Model
While there is no required format for this analysis, they do ask applicants to identify and explain the thinking behind:
Who will be affected by grant activities and why
A thoughtful analysis of the barriers and challenges impacting the affected individuals
What resources are currently available
How the grant proposal addresses a critical need
A proposed scope of the project and how it will lead to the desired impact, with the healthcare workforce group (or groups) to be impacted clearly outlined and explained
Multiple Collaborators
They believe that any realistic attempt to close health outcome gaps related to workforce issues will involve multiple collaborators acting in concert to change policies, norms, practices and programs. The collective impact model is built on coalitions of actors effecting change across multiple sectors and levels of impact.
Participatory Design & Community Representation and Inclusion
Evidence closely ties participatory design to improved rates of success in improving outcomes in health and education, particularly where there are race-based and other disparities. Successful applications will include soliciting and incorporating input on project design and outcomes from the communities being directly impacted by grant activities, with the ultimate goal of empowering communities to have ownership of and a sustained positive improvement and innovation after grant activities end.
Potential Project
Components Project components should be tailored to an applicant community’s needs, driven by evidence and best practices. Applicants may want to consider:
Educational efforts that attempt to prepare future generations of Louisianans to meet the identified gap
Recruitment efforts that attempt to sustainably close the gap in healthcare workforce
Retention efforts that slow or stop the loss in healthcare workforce
Related efforts that aid in one of the above and/ or improve the healthcare workforce issue identified
Funding Information

Grants range from $250,000 to $1 million over three years (full awards will be made in one-third increments per each year of the project upon meeting annual performance benchmarks)
