Washington State Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) RFP

HCA has initiated a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from firms interested in participating on a project to prepare for and administer the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) and create and disseminate electronic HYS results. The HYS measures health-risk behaviors that contribute to morbidity, mortality, and social problems of youth. The HYS results serve as important needs assessment data and offer insight into the effectiveness of statewide prevention and health promotion initiatives. Please share this RFP announcement with firms who may be interested in applying.

The $750 planning stipends will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
