NACCHO, with support from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP), is pleased to announce two new funding opportunities for health departments to partner with other healthcare entities to expand STI and HIV services, treatment, and care in their communities.
Leveraging Pharmacies for STI Services and Care
This funding is to explore the provision of expanded STI patient care via pharmacy settings.
- Two-to-five health department-pharmacy partnerships will be funded up to $75,000 (per partnership) to develop, design, and implement a collaborative partnership between pharmacies and health departments to expand STI services and care.
- Findings will be shared broadly with STD programs and pharmacies across the country.
- Applications are due on May 27, 2022. For additional information or to access the RFA, visit here.
Leveraging Retail Health Clinics for STI/HIV Services and Care for Underserved Minorities
This funding is to support integration of sexual health services for underserved and under-diagnosed racial/ethnic and sexual minorities, including young people, across RHCs, health department, primary care, and other healthcare settings.
- This funding is only available to partnerships in Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) priority jurisdictions.
- Up to three health department-retail health clinic teams will be funded up to $300,000 (per partnership) to develop, design, and implement a collaborative partnership to expand STI/HIV services and care.
- Applications are due on May 31, 2022. For additional information or to access the RFA, visit here.
If you are interested in applying for either of these opportunities but have questions, there will be informational webinars in April which are noted in the respective RFAs.
