Health authority reoffers grant

The Spokesman-Review
A publicly funded health sciences authority is reopening a $100,000 grant competition. The Health Sciences & Services Authority (HSSA) of Spokane County requests grant proposals from organizations that can improve the efficiency of delivering care in the county. After failing to find a program that met grant criteria earlier this year, the HSSA has modified criteria for this challenge grant. Applicants must provide a 50 percent match, which can include some in-kind resources. The HSSA already has awarded $225,000 to Project Access, which finds medical care for the poor. HSSA also has awarded a $675,000 grant to the Institute for Systems Medicine to bolster its bioscience research and the formation of a human tissue bank. For more information:
