@Sarah, does NPNA has a sense of how many first timers are in the mix from NPNAs membership?
Mireya Reith, Arkansas United
49:52
@Nicole, if helpful for your national conversations, Arkansas is NOT a NAC site, I feel there are probably other Southern or Midwest NPNA members may be in same boat
Nicole Melaku
54:22
Thanks Mireya.
Mireya Reith, Arkansas United
56:04
@Nicole, if you hear of any national group (even NPNA!) who would like to help fill "gaps"/ new capacity states like Arkansas, we could put time/ energy instead to a Regional Hub strategy instead of CINAS. Worried again about how us "first timers" would stack up for this grant on our own
