News from the CVH Leadership Team

Tara Trujillo, Chair

Dear Friends,
I appreciate that we are all working hard on NOFOs right now. These are some resources that Leadership Team members are finding helpful in their 1815 planning:
  1. CDC's list of frequently asked questions for 1815 NOFO
  2. State successes in NACDD's What's Working database
Please remember that the CVH Leadership Team is here for you and we want to support you in your efforts. "Off the Cuff" is a great way to submit questions for other states and share your resources and tips. Please contact me (Tara) or Kathy Foell , "Off the Cuff" Editor, if you would like to contribute to a future issue.
