NACCHO is now accepting applications for the Vector Control Collaborative (VCC) technical assistance program. NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have established the VCC to match local vector control programs with demonstrated expertise in the ten vector control capabilities with mosquito and/or tick control programs currently looking for guidance, tools, and resources, and recommendations to build program capability.
Participants in the VCC will be provided a mentor who will visit their program to provide on-site technical assistance in vector surveillance and control. Selected programs will also be awarded funds to visit their mentor’s site and shadow their program. NACCHO will award nine vector control programs with $1,400 to participate in the VCC and cover site visit expenses.
Programs that are eligible to apply for this round of funding must be located in one of the following states:
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
