NACCHO is Accepting Cohort 10 Applications for the Retail Program Standards Mentorship Program

Sep 02, 2020 | Anu Varma

*Applications for Cohort 10 are no longer being accepted*

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) invites all retail food regulatory programs to submit applications to participate in a mentorship program with their peers to learn, share experiences, and acquire tools and resources related to the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (Retail Program Standards).

The overall objective of the mentorship program, now in its tenth year, is to match retail food regulatory program practitioners experienced in applying the Retail Program Standards with retail food regulatory programs newly or currently enrolled in the Retail Program Standards that are looking for assistance, guidance, tools and resources, and recommendations for conducting a self-assessment, achieving a specific standard, or achieving multiple standards.

This opportunity will provide capacity building among retail food regulatory programs participating in the NACCHO Mentorship Program. Additionally, the program will help strengthen relationships between retail food regulatory programs and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This initiative is funded by a cooperative agreement between NACCHO and FDA.

Applications for Cohort 10 (2020-2021) closed October 13, 2020 at 11:59 PM ET. The applicants will be notified of their selection status on or around the week of November 9, 2020.
