  • Develop an action plan that will provide goals, objectives, and activities to advance disability inclusion within the LHD jurisdiction;
  • Establish and maintain partnerships across public health and organizations that serve people with disabilities to address the health needs of disability communities;
  • Participate in one-on-one capacity building technical assistance calls with NACCHO staff to review progress of action plan and share lessons learned and practices;
  • Participate in evaluation-related activities to track and measure progress towards expressed outcomes; and
