Funding Opportunities for Harm Reduction Monitoring & Evaluation
With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in partnership with the University of Washington (UW), NACCHO is pleased to announce new funding opportunities to promote monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of syringe services programs (SSPs) and support the use of data for SSP program improvement. An overview of each funding opportunity is included below.
Open: Use of Learning Collaborative Model to Build Capacity of Syringe Services Programs to Conduct Point in Time Surveys
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to increase the capacity of SSPs to implement Point in Time surveys and support the use of collected data for SSP program improvement through participation in a Learning Collaborative. The funding opportunity will also seek to assess and demonstrate the effectiveness of a Learning Collaborative approach as a means of building SSP capacity for M&E, including Point in Time Surveys.
Through this Request for Applications (RFA), NACCHO will issue contracts of up to $50,000 to local health department (LHD)-operated or community-based SSPs. Funding will support participation in and evaluation of the Learning Collaborative for 7 months, including completion of deliverables related to the implementation of a Point in Time survey. Applications are due on January 6, 2022. For additional information or to access the RFA, visit here.
Open: Advancing Harm Reduction through Data Analysis & Evaluation
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support and build capacity for data analysis and evaluation at SSPs. The funding opportunity is also designed to support SSPs in using data for program and policy improvement and inform future technical assistance opportunities by identifying lessons learned and best practices for the field, and identifying models and best practices for data analysis at SSPs of varied capacity.
Through this Request for Applications (RFA), NACCHO will issue contracts of up to $90,000 to LHD-operated or community-based SSPs to implement data analysis or evaluation projects. Applications are due on January 13, 2022. For additional information or to access the RFA, visit here.
