Grant to fund participation in national forum

A $600,000 grant will fund a successful applicant’s participation in the National Forum for State and Territorial Chief Executives, the CNMI Office of Grant Management announced last week.

The national forum assists governors and key policy staff to develop and implement innovative solutions to governance and policy development in their jurisdictions.

It serves as a national health policy body for the territories and facilitates communication among policymakers on current and emerging strategies to address health issues within a certain territory.

Nonprofit, bipartisan or nonpartisan national organizations that represent governors and their staff of a broad cross-section of territories such as the Northern Marianas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are eligible to apply.

The grant is made available through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
