Become Part of the Vector Control Collaborative Mentorship Program: 2023 Applications Now Open

Jan 17, 2023 | Anu Varma

Managed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO, with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Vector Control Collaborative (VCC) mentorship program has matched many local vector control programs with demonstrated expertise in the ten capabilities with vector control programs currently looking for guidance, tools and resources, and recommendations to build program capability.

To date, NACCHO has awarded 37 Vector Control Collaborative grants across 11 states to train program staff in key functions in mosquito and tick management, build jurisdictional partnerships, and expand program operations. Vector control programs that have completed the VCC also reported the following benefits:

  • Adopting best practices and building practical knowledge that increase operational efficiency.
  • Attending vector control and surveillance trainings and conferences.
  • Establishing physical upgrades to program space and equipment to support resistance testing, education, and control efforts.
  • Expanding partnerships with mentorship partner, academia, and other jurisdictional organizations.
  • Gaining opportunities to shadow and learn from more advanced programs.
  • Participants have been offered opportunities to visit mentor and mentee sites to shadow programs and provide on-site technical assistance in vector surveillance and control respectively.

See what the 2022 cohort completed as part of their project grant work.

This year, selected programs to the VCC will be awarded up to $10,000 in grant funding.
