New HIA Funding Opportunity Available

Aug 19, 2015 | Bridget Kerner

Through support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Healthy Community Design Initiative, NACCHO is pleased to offer two funding opportunities for up to six local health departments (LHDs). The funding opportunities are as follows:

Component A: Component A includes funding of up to $15,000 each for up to three LHDs to complete a Health Impact Assessment (HIA).

Component B: Component B includes funding of up to $5,000 each for up to three LHDs to conduct a HIA or HIA-like activity using at least one of three tools and provide an evaluation of the utility of the resource for conducting HIAs and HIA-like work. LHDs must use and evaluate one of the following three tools to be eligible for the funding: CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Network; the CDC/National Park Service Parks, Trails and Health Workbook and/or the CDC Healthy Community Design Checklist Toolkit. LHDs conducting or planning to conduct an HIA have the option of applying for both of these funding opportunities. An HIA-like activity is defined as: a limited desk-top examination of a proposed policy, plan or program which focuses on less than three health impacts.

Interested LHDs can find the full Request for Proposals here, and the application for both funding opportunities here.

NACCHO and CDC staff will host an optional teleconference call for interested applicants for both funding opportunities on Thursday, August 20, 2015 from 1-2 pm EDT. Register now for the call. The purpose of the call is to answer questions about this Request for Proposals and to provide a short overview of expectations. Please note that no new proposal information will be shared during the call; as such, applicants need not wait for this optional call in order to begin or submit proposals. The call will be recorded and posted to the NACCHO HIA website for those unable to participate. Completed applications are due Thursday, September 10, 2015.

If you have outstanding questions after reading the request for proposals in detail, please e-mail healthycommdesign@naccho.org.
