Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs) Overview

The WIPS cycle 1 deadlines have passed. The next WIPs cycle will be announced in late spring 2014.

The CDC has released the 2013 Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs). An electronic copy of your PHS Form 5161-1 grant application and application cover sheet (Word) should be submitted to your respective Association no later than 8:00 p.m. ET on July 23, 2013. All applications will be objectively reviewed. Applicants should carefully review the application review criteria, listed in the WIP project description, prior to preparing your submission.

The announcement of the 2013 WIPs is one method used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to solicit proposals from eligible applicants from member institutions in topic areas that are of interest to the CDC Centers, Institutes and Offices (CIOs). WIPs focus on workforce development in various areas of public health practice in domestic or international settings. While these opportunities do not have committed funding, CIOs have a genuine interest in pursuing these activities. Potential applicants are encouraged to have a clear understanding of the intent of the WIP before submitting their applications. When submitting an application, it is important to view the listing of current FAQs, as well as the WIP-specific questions.
