Funding Opportunity for Skilled Consultants: Building Workforce Capacity of Rural and Frontier Local Health Departments to Respond to COVID-19

Feb 28, 2022 | Emily Boyle

NACCHO is pleased to offer a funding opportunity for skilled consultants to support the Building Workforce Capacity of Rural and Frontier Local Health Departments to Respond to COVID-19. With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO will be offering funding for consultants to help build Local Health Department (LHD) workforce capacity to respond to COVID-19 for Year 2 of this project.

Two different awards are available; one for a technical assistance consultant and the other for a training consultant. The Emergency and Administrative Planning Technical Assistance consultant will provide frequent, tailored, and in-depth one-on-one technical assistance throughout the grant period to LHD grant recipients – all designed to support LHD grant recipients in updating existing or developing new administrative preparedness plans and procedures and to begin to implement those plans, as feasible, during the project period. The training consultant will facilitate monthly interactive workshops to build the workforce capacity of LHD award recipients in the areas of public health communications; workforce resilience, mental health and well-being; and potential other areas that emerge during the period of performance.

Applicants may apply for funding awards of up to $450,000 (Technical Assistance Consultant) or $300,000 (Training Consultant) to support COVID-19 response and recovery activities related to: administrative preparedness, emergency preparedness and response, communications, workforce mental health and well-being, health equity, and emerging issues. Application deadline is Friday, March 25, 2022, 11:59 PM ET.

Questions about the RFP and application process can be directed to the project team, at [email protected].
