The purpose of this funding opportunity is to identify one provider to design, establish, manage, and assess the efficacy of a national training and technical assistance (TTA) coordination center (CC) to support the sustainability capacity of approximately 15 grantee-coalitions/partnership who participated in the Year 1 Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) - Getting Further Faster (GFF) initiative. GFF is co-led by NACCHO and ASTHO in partnership with the CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP).
In Year 2 of this initiative, funded coalitions/partnerships will be expected to participate in a more focused evaluation effort that will build on the prior year’s work of building the evidence-base of promising practices for improving health outcomes and health equity by addressing five GFF SDOH domains: the built environment, clinical-community linkages, food and nutrition security, social connectedness, and tobacco-free policies. The Year 2 evaluation will take a deeper dive on topics such as the cost and sustainability of partnerships’ SDOH initiatives, collaboration with clinical delivery systems, and the role partnerships play in helping to build community resilience, including local and state health departments. It will also inform the utility and application of a set of SDOH measures developed by CDC as informed and/or adopted by selected coalitions/partnerships.
