DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MARCH 10, 2023 AT 11:59 PM EST.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is excited to announce a new funding opportunity. This funding opportunity will build capacity of local health departments (LHDs) to effectively collaborate with Afghan refugee, immigrant, and migrant communities and community-based organizations for improved Afghan community public health.

This opportunity aims to build and sustain Afghan community engagement and community health planning structures, support Afghan community health assessment processes, focusing on community needs for sustainable approaches to address priority public health needs, including vaccine hesitancy, and health education, and support development of referral and linkage systems to Afghan friendly community health education, and health and social services.

This project also seeks to build capacity of LHDs to effectively collaborate with Afghan refugee, immigrant, and migrant communities and community-based organizations for improved Afghan community public health.

NACCHO will issue contracts of up to $140,000 to up to five sites Under Tier One that have existing collaborations between LHDs and RIM serving community-based organizations, including Afghan- refugee serving community- based organization(s) developed to address emerging infectious disease, including COVID-19, and up to $200,000 per site to up to four LHDs under Tier Two to implement activities to support jurisdictions with large or growing populations of Afghan refugees.  

Applications must be submitted by March 10, at 11:59 PM ET to [email protected]. All necessary information regarding the project and application process is outlined in the Request for Applications (RFA) attached below.
