2018-2019 Technical Assistance Available to Support Disability Inclusion Efforts

Oct 23, 2018 | Michelle Shapiro

NACCHO’s Health and Disability Technical Assistance Program is now accepting applications through December 7, 2018. This initiative is designed to support local health departments seeking to increase inclusivity and accessibility for people with disabilities in their programs, products, and services, including emergency preparedness planning/response, health promotion, community health assessment and improvement planning, and staff training.

Click here to apply today!

Application Process:

  1. Local health department staff complete a brief application indicating the type of technical assistance they are interested in receiving. The application should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
  2. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Within three weeks of receiving each application, NACCHO will set up an initial consultation call to further discuss the application and any additional health department needs.

Components of the Technical Assistance Program:

  • NACCHO and health department staff will work collaboratively to identify action items and appropriate tools and resources addressing the health department’s individual needs.
  • Each program participant will receive a summary report of NACCHO’s findings and recommendations.
  • Technical assistance recipients are asked to complete an evaluation to provide feedback on their experience.
  • NACCHO offers several national recognition opportunities for local health department participants in this program, such as being highlighted in dedicated feature blogs and receiving opportunities to speak at NACCHO-sponsored events.

Interested local health departments are strongly encouraged to submit an application for technical assistance by December 7, 2018.

Please contact Sara Lyons, NACCHO Program Analyst for Health and Disability, with any additional questions or inquiries at [email protected]. Learn more about NACCHO’s Health and Disability program here.
