Message from NICHE in Consideration of COVID-19 Situation

The Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) team recognizes that nursing home leaders and staff are experiencing an unprecedentedly difficult challenge with COVID-19. As such, we are delaying the start of our Washington State NICHE Civil Monetary Program (CMP) Grant. We are extending the deadline to apply to participate in the grant to Friday, April 24, 2020, and we will further adjust that deadline if needed, based on the COVID-19 situation. The application is available online, and a paper copy is attached to this email. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation with our colleagues at the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and plan program start dates accordingly in the coming weeks.


We are confident that nursing home teams are facing this challenge as they face others, by working together to ensure the health and safety of their residents and staff. We applaud all working in healthcare, including in long-term and post-acute care, during this ever-evolving and extremely challenging time.
