Applying for JCC Project Funding

 
We are often asked by physicians and/or other groups:  How do I/we apply for funding support for projects through the Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs)?
 
The first thing to keep in mind is that a lot of the collaborative work through the JCCs is about building partnerships; it’s not all about funding. As part of these partnerships, some funding may be available for individuals or groups working on innovative and relevant projects designed to improve patient care and build a stronger health care system. 
 
The following provides a summary of some of the JCC project funding opportunities.  
  

Shared Care Committee

 
General partnership and/or funding guidelines are available here.
 
On that page you also find templates for those interested in applying for funding under the following streams of work:
  • Coordinating complex care for older adults
  • Partners in care/Transitions in Care
  • Spread Networks (maternity, chronic pain, adult mental health and substance use)

Specialist Services Committee 

 
Partnerships and/or funding from the Specialist Services Committee include
