Request for Applications: Addressing Needs of People with Disabilities in COVID-19 Local Preparedness Planning, Mitigation and Recovery Efforts – Part 2

Sep 20, 2022 | Sara Lyons

With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Human Development and Disability, NACCHO is pleased to offer a funding opportunity to address the needs of people with disabilities in emergency preparedness, including COVID-19 planning, mitigation, and recovery efforts. Approximately 12 awards and $75,000 per award are available.

The main activities of the project include (1) embedding disability specialists, who will serve as subject matter experts, in local public health emergency preparedness planning and response programs; (2) increasing partnerships between local health departments and local disability organizations and (3) updating local emergency response plans to better serve the needs of people with disabilities during outbreaks, pandemics, and other national emergencies.

Project Goals

Selected LHDs will be required to:

  • Support or hire a disability specialist to coordinate activities and ensure that issues impacting people with disabilities are included in planning and response efforts. NACCHO strongly encourages people with disabilities be hired as specialists;
  • Participate in project kick-off call, orientation/trainings, and close-out call with all grantees, CDC, and NACCHO;
  • Collaborate on improvement plans with disability specialist and local public health emergency preparedness program staff to ensure disability-inclusive planning and response efforts;
  • Establish and maintain partnerships across public health, emergency preparedness and organizations that serve people with disabilities to address the local needs of people with disabilities within emergency planning and response efforts;
  • Participate in community of practice and technical assistance to review progress of planned activities and share practices and lessons learned;
  • Participate in evaluation-related activities to track and measure progress towards expressed outcomes; and
  • Complete a final report detailing successes, challenges, and lessons learned.
