PTCB Partnership Funds Program

Organizations that participate in PTCB’s State Associate Program have an exclusive opportunity to request funds for projects aimed at promoting medication safety and advancing the roles of pharmacy technicians. PTCB offers two funding cycles during each calendar year. Each State Associate may submit one proposal per calendar year. 

Requirements

Applicants must be a current PTCB State Associate and agree to share project information (e.g. progress, success stories) with PTCB staff upon request and provide a summary of project activities to PTCB upon completion. This information may be used in PTCB communications and marketing materials to highlight successful and innovative projects.

Use of Funds

Funds may be used only for direct costs associated with the development and implementation of the project described in the proposal. Salaries and overhead expenses will not be funded. The maximum award for an individual proposal may not exceed $10,000. While there is no time limit on the use of the funds, it is PTCB’s expectation that funds will be used according to the timeline outlined in the project proposal. 

Application Process 

The application and project proposal must be submitted via email to stateassociates@ptcb.org by the deadline indicated below.

  • Description of the technician-related project

  • Project objectives
  • Project timetable
  • Budget (detailed, see below)
