NACCHO is seeking a consultant to provide evaluation expertise for Resilience Catalysts in Public Health (RC), a national collaborative and network of 12 LHDs seeking to eliminate adversity, build resilience, and foster equity through policy, practice, and program change. Through RC, LHDs use the novel Community Resilience (CR) framework developed by Dr. Wendy Ellis as a Public Health 3.0 strategy. LHDs receive technical assistance to convene partners from multiple sectors to systematically identify, measure, and address the downstream effects of structural racism and the inequities that contribute to adverse childhood experiences and adverse community environments (i.e., the Pair of ACEs).
NACCHO will award up to $175,000 for a consultant, or consulting team, to design and implement an evaluation; submit a formal, written evaluation report; facilitate application of evaluation findings and lessons learned; and co-draft a peer-reviewed manuscript. The evaluation should include both a process and (to the extent possible) short-to-longer term outcome evaluation. There will be an additional $2,800 available for travel for two persons to attend a convening of sites (location and date are TBD).
Proposals are due October 24, 2022, by 5:00 PM EDT. View the request for proposals, and contact the following individuals for more information:
