Deadline Extended: NACCHO Disability Technical Assistance Program

Sep 11, 2017 | Sara Lyons

NACCHO’s Health and Disability Program is currently accepting applications through January 26, 2018 for its 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. Through this program, NACCHO staff provides assistance on a variety of topics related to health department activities including emergency preparedness planning and health promotion programming.

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 a post-assessment 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 January 26, 2018.

Applications take only up to 10 minutes to complete and are reviewed on a rolling basis. All candidates submitting an application within the above deadline will be contacted within three weeks 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.

This opportunity is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Cooperative Agreement #5NU38OT000172-05-00 and the Disability and Health program.
