NACCHO’s Project Public Health Ready Recognizes Three Agencies

Sep 06, 2022 | Beth Hess

NACCHO’s Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) is pleased to recognize three agencies from Florida for their ability to plan for, respond to, and recover from public health emergencies. These three agencies received PPHR re-recognition status.

PPHR is a criteria-based training and recognition program established by NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help local health departments (LHDs) develop core public health and emergency preparedness competencies. The PPHR program is an intensive 18-month process that provides LHDs the structure to build training and preparedness capacities using a continuous quality improvement model. Those who successfully complete the program are PPHR recognized for five years.

Congratulations to the following agencies who were recognized:

All recognized LHDs now have a written comprehensive all-hazards response plan that aligns with the highest national and federal standards. Through the process, LHDs had an opportunity to build partnerships with local, state, and federal leaders, community response partners, and other stakeholders; and facilitate collaboration and team building across the entire health department.

How to Get Involved in PPHR

Intent to Apply forms for re-recognition during the 2023 Review Cycle are available on the PPHR website and are due October 31, 2022.

Due to a high volume of anticipated re-recognition applications, NACCHO will not be accepting First-Time Recognition applications during the 2023 Review Cycle. First-Time Applications will be accepted during the 2024 Cycle.

More information about the PPHR program can be found on the website. Agencies with questions about the program contact PPHR staff at [email protected].
