2021 Technical Assistance Available to Support Disability Inclusion Efforts

Dec 17, 2020 | Sara Lyons

NACCHO’s Health and Disability Program is currently accepting applications through February 19th, 2021 for its Health and Disability Technical Assistance Program. 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. NACCHO welcomes technical assistance requests about the inclusion of people with disabilities in all health department activities, with a focus on strategic plans, agency policies and procedures, community health assessment and improvement planning, and staff training.

To participate, local health department staff need to complete a brief application indicating the type of technical assistance they are interested in receiving. Upon receipt of each application, NACCHO will set up an initial consultation call, to further discuss the application and any additional health department related needs. After assessing each agency’s goals, NACCHO and health department staff will work collaboratively to identify action-items and appropriate tools and resources addressing the health department’s individual needs.

In addition to receiving direct NACCHO staff support, tools and resources, each program participant is provided with a summary report of NACCHO’s findings and recommendations. Technical assistance recipients are also asked to complete an evaluation to provide feedback on their experience.

Finally, 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 February 19th, 2021.

Applications take only up to 10 minutes to complete and are reviewed on a rolling basis. Technical assistance will begin in February 2020. Local health departments submitting an application will be contacted to arrange an initial consultation call. Click here to begin an application today!

Please contact Sara Lyons, NACCHO Program Analyst for Health and Disability, with any additional questions or inquiries at slyons@naccho.org. For more information on NACCHO’s Health and Disability program, click here to visit the dedicated webpage via the NACCHO website.
