NACCHO is pleased to announce that the 2020 MRC Operational Readiness Awards (ORAs) application period will open this month. The ORAs aim to build the operational readiness capabilities of Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers and units to meet the emergency preparedness and response needs of their local, regional, or statewide stakeholders. The awards are intended to be flexible to meet the needs of all MRC units, support efforts to build MRC capabilities, strengthen stakeholder awareness of MRC capabilities, and identify or sustain integration of the MRC into local, state, and/or regional emergency response plans.
- The MRC ORA is a competitive award open to MRC units that meet the eligibility requirements as outlined on the MRC website, as well as those listed in this Request for Applications (RFA) document under Section III: Eligibility Requirements.
- MRC units may apply between October 7-28, 2019 by submitting their application on NACCHO’s award website: https://application.naccho.org/Public/Awards/Apply
