The National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) is seeking applicants for the Disability Network Business Acumen Learning Collaborative.
The purpose of the Learning Collaborative is to bring together 8 - 10 state "teams" comprised of state agencies, community-based organizations (CBOs) serving persons with disabilities (physical, intellectual and/or developmental), integrated healthcare entities and other organizations to work together to develop and implement business-related strategies to state-specific challenges for integrating long term services and supports, and healthcare services. This work will focus on developing the business acumen of CBOs to help them prepare for working within a changing business environment.
Participants of the learning collaborative will receive intensive and ongoing technical assistance and support. No direct funding will be provided through this initiative; rather, this collaborative will receive targeted technical assistance customized to the goals and needs of the participating state teams. Additionally, state teams will work collaboratively with the Business Acumen Resource Center to continuously create summary materials and "lessons learned" available for the community through the Business Acumen website.
To learn more and apply, visit the Business Acumen Center.
Join an informational webinar about the learning collaborative on Friday, June 30, by registering here.
The learning collaborative is available as part of the Disability Business Acumen Grant provided by the Administration for Community Living to NASUAD in collaboration with nine national partner organizations.
