NACCHO Offers Funding to Advance Climate and Health Activities in Local Health Departments

Sep 08, 2020

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) supports local efforts to track, prevent, and mitigate the health effects of climate change. According to the NACCHO Climate Change Policy Statement, these efforts include (1) the incorporation of adaptation planning into land use, housing, and transportation design; (2) preparing communities for extreme and unusual environmental events; and (3) coordinating with local governments on all-hazards disaster planning. NACCHO supports implementing existing policies and procedures (e.g., CDC BRACE framework) and integrating climate change into ongoing performance improvement measures (e.g., Public Health Accreditation).

NACCHO, with support from the Climate and Health Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), intends to award up to three entities with a range of $16,000 to $24,000 each. The purpose of this funding is to supplement ongoing climate change and health adaptation initiatives in local health departments.

Applicants must submit their PDF application by 11:59 p.m. ET, Thursday, October 22, 2020 to Amy Chang, NACCHO’s Senior Program Analyst at achang@naccho.org. Learn more and download the application.
