Required Grant Information Sessions
UWHC requires all applicants to attend one of two information sessions prior to submitting a Letter of Intent. This session will cover information beyond what is included in this Request for Proposals document.  

In determining who will represent your agency at the session, please consider a person/people with knowledge of the particular program you wish to propose, decision-making authority and direct involvement in the writing of the application. The dates, times and locations of the information sessions will be:

Session #1: Tuesday, January 9, 2018 from 9am to 11am
Session #2: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 from 2pm to 4pm

Both sessions will be held at Union Station, 125 Pleasant St, Northampton, MA 01060

To reserve your agency’s place at an Information Session, UWHC requests that agencies send an email to in advance. Please include the agency name, names of attendees, preferred email address for confirmation, phone number, and preferred session date. Up to three individuals may attend from each agency.

If a session needs to be cancelled for any reason, an email will be sent to all attendees with new scheduling information.
