This Collaborative is intended to help DC EMA grantees accomplish the following objectives:
Between April 2011 and May 2012, participants took part in five face-to-face learning sessions, joined technical assistance conference calls, and maintained continual contact with each other and NQC faculty members through listserv discussions and emails. Participants have had an ongoing opportunity to collaborate with each other to share good ideas and best practices, as well as raise issues and lessons learned.
This Collaborative was initiated with a Vanguard Meeting on January 11, 2011. This meeting served to lay the groundwork for the Collaborative from the Vanguard meeting through the fifth learning session supported by NQC and HAB. Since May, 2012, the DC Cross Part Collaborative Response Team has continued to meet monthly and to provide periodic community-run Learning Sessions and Quality Summit training opportunities. NQC looks forward to continuing to work and grow with these dedicated grantees.
