Scope of Work 

For the core phase of the AHRQ ECHO National Nursing Home COVID-19 Action Network, Training Centers will receive a payment of $120,000 per 16-week training cohort of 33-35 nursing homes launched. The $120,000 must include both direct and indirect costs. The first payment will be issued upon execution of the training center contract. For subsequent cohorts launched, you will receive $120,000 upon launch (you may invoice after the first teleECHO session is held). Should the AHRQ ECHO National Nursing Home COVID-19 Action Network period of performance be extended by the ECHO Institute, training centers will be required to extend their work with nursing homes beyond the initial 16-week training to a 36-week Community of Ongoing Learning and receive an additional $80,000 per cohort.
