The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is currently offering technical assistance support to local health departments to improve their capacity to develop or enhance health promotion programs for people living with disabilities through coordination of existing health department and community services.
Cortland County Health Department (NY) works with Access to Independence (ATI), the county's local experts on disability. The Cortland County Health Department and its community partners are conducting a project to promote the health and well-being of people with disabilities funded by NACCHO.
