  • 2016 Lifespan Risk Management Grant Award Program

  • The Risk Management Grant Award Program was created to support innovative efforts to reduce liability exposure through funding of specific education/research projects that can be shared system-wide.  The grant request under this program must be related to professional liability (malpractice), general liability issues, or Patient Safety efforts and there must be an identified loss prevention benefit resulting from the proposal.

    Risk Management Grant Awards are available for a total of $125,000 for all grants funded in Fiscal Year 2016.  Programs funded by this grant are usually short-term and relatively small in scope.  The average amount of an award is approximately $30,000.

    Preliminary proposals are to be submitted electronically no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2015.
