With support from the National Center on Health, Physical Activity, and Disability (NCHPAD), NACCHO is pleased to announce an open funding opportunity for local health departments to include people with disabilities in their community health assessment (CHA) and/or community health improvement plan (CHIP) efforts using the Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework, and the MAPP Resource Guide for Disability Inclusion.
The purpose is to ensure that data is collected and used to inform strategic priorities and place-based programs and services that support the health of people with disabilities. NACCHO and NCHPAD will provide tools and resources, technical assistance, and subject matter expertise throughout the project period. NACCHO understands that many public health activities have been modified due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This project will support local health departments to complete the required activities virtually. NACCHO will provide assistance and guidance with virtual community engagement activities that are accessible to people with disabilities.
NACCHO will make up to two (2) awards available to local health departments with awards up to $10,000 each.
NACCHO hosted one (1) optional webinar for interested applicants on Monday, July 6, 2020. To listen to the webinar recording, click here. The purpose of the webinar was to discuss this funding opportunity and respond to any questions. You can download the raw transcript file here.
