Apply Now: Retail Program Standards Mentorship Program

Sep 04, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

NACCHO invites all state, local, tribal, and territorial 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).

The Retail Program Standards are designed to help retail food regulatory programs enhance the services they provide to the public and provide a means of recognition for programs that meet these standards.

Program Objectives

The overall objective of the mentorship program, now in its ninth 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).

Program Details

The program duration will be from December 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020. Ongoing technical assistance beyond the one-time funding will be available. Funding per mentee agency can reach up to $14,000. The amount awarded to each selected mentee will be contingent on the number of eligible applications received and the proposed project. Funding per mentor retail food regulatory program is anticipated to range from $14,000–$24,000. The amount awarded to each selected mentor will be based on the number of mentees supported and contingent on the number of eligible applications received. NACCHO plans to announce the selected agencies on the week of November 11, 2019. Funding estimates for the overall program and for individual projects may change.

This initiative is funded by a cooperative agreement between NACCHO and FDA.
