2018-2019 Retail Program Standards Mentorship Program RFA

Sep 04, 2018 | Michelle Shapiro

NACCHO invites all retail food regulatory programs to submit applications to participate in a mentorship program with their peers to learn, share experiences, and acquire tools and resources related to the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (Retail Program Standards).

Program Objectives

The overall objective of the mentorship program, now in its eighth year, is to match retail food regulatory program practitioners experienced in applying the Retail Program Standards with retail food regulatory programs newly or currently enrolled in the Retail Program Standards that are looking for assistance, guidance, tools and resources, and recommendations for conducting a self-assessment, achieving a specific standard, or achieving multiple standards.

This opportunity will provide capacity building among retail food regulatory programs participating in the NACCHO Mentorship Program. Additionally, the program will help strengthen relationships between retail food regulatory programs and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This initiative is funded by a cooperative agreement between NACCHO and FDA.

Important Dates

  • Informational Webinars: NACCHO and FDA staff will host two optional webinars for interested applicants on Thursday, September 13 from 1:00-1:30 PM ET and Tuesday, October 2 from 1:00-1:30 PM ET. Access the webinars at http://naccho.adobeconnect.com/nacchomentorship/ and dial 866-740-1260; Passcode: 5074221. The purpose of the webinar is to answer questions about this RFA. Please note that no new information will be shared during the webinars; as such, applicants need not wait for these optional call-ins order to begin or submit applications.
  • Application Deadline: October 12, 2018, 8:00pm ET
