Apr 12, 2021 | Beth Hess

Now accepting applications!

The Preparedness Policy Advisory Group (PPAG) is NACCHO’s overarching preparedness workgroup that provides feedback and comments on a variety of federal public health preparedness policy issues and initiatives to strengthen the voice of local health departments (LHDs) on national policy issues related to the planning, response, and recovery from disasters and other emergencies. The main goals of this workgroup are to:

  • Enhance the capability LHDs to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other public health emergencies by providing feedback on preparedness practice and policy, as well as direction on oversight on NACCHO’s Preparedness advisory groups
  • Provide input to NACCHO’s Preparedness Committee to help inform the organization’s position on a variety of high-level initiatives
  • Improve LHD community preparedness and recovery capacity by promoting new and existing related resources, tools, and best practices.

Membership: Serving on PPAG is both a privilege and responsibility. Members consist of one LHD preparedness representative from each state and each of the four directly funded cities (Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and Washington DC). The chairs of each NACCHO preparedness workgroup are also automatically members of this work group. All representatives must have broad preparedness policies and initiatives knowledge. Currently, we are seeking a representative from each of the following states, cities, or districts: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Time Commitment: The workgroup will convene monthly via ZOOM for 1.5 hours. In addition, members are also expected to provide regular feedback to national policy and federal guidance and share key information with your peers and colleagues.
