NVHR awarded four $10,000 NVHR Hepatitis C Project Booster Mini Grants in 2018. These mini-grants are intended to enhance the capacity of NVHR member organizations to conduct hepatitis C (HCV) education, testing, and linkage to care in their local communities and then disseminate those best practices nationally. Our recipients are conducting one year projects from June 1, 2018 - May 31, 2019.
