The CoP-RCORP Consortia originally came together when Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) supported five Ohio Counties to submit two $200,000 grants from the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) in the U.S.
In Ohio, efforts to increase capacity and sustainability at the local level use a community of practice model. A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a craft or a profession.
Because the master consortium in Ohio uses a shared services and community of practice approach, it is important to detail how each of the five community leaders and local consortia interact and receive these shared services.
Our Community Leaders
Each of the five local consortia have a project director to help develop capacity within their local community.
Our TTAE TEAM
The COP-RCORP Training, Technical Assistance, and Evaluation Team (TTAE) is made up of evaluators and researchers from the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation and Ohio University’s Voinovich School.
Our workplan outlines the concrete steps and those responsible for achieving each of the core activities in HRSA’s planning grant program.
This section includes key documents related to master consortium meetings. Each includes a brief summary of what took place in the meeting, as well as downloadable agendas for each meeting including meeting minutes at the end of each agenda.
