Requirements for the mini-grant:
Category A: Unaccredited/unrecognized DSME programs which receive a mini-grant through this funding will be required to prepare their program for accreditation (American Association of Diabetes Educators-AADE) or recognition (American Diabetes Association-ADA), undergo a site visit/mock audit by an experienced DSME program auditor, and make application to either the AADE or the ADA.
Category B: Accredited/recognized DSME programs which receive a mini-grant through this funding will be required to establish a satellite location in a county which does not have an existing accredited/recognized DSME program.
