Request for Applications: Convening of Indian Country Congenital Syphilis Taskforce

Nov 01, 2023

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is the voice of the nearly 3,000 local health departments (LHDs) across the country. These city, county, metropolitan, district, and tribal departments work to protect and improve the health of all people and all communities. NACCHO provides capacity-building resources that support LHD leaders in developing and implementing public health policies and practices to ensure communities have access to the vital programs and services that protect them from disease and disaster. Additionally, NACCHO engages with federal policymakers on behalf of LHDs to ensure adequate resources, appropriate public health legislation, and sensible policies are in place to address the myriad of public health challenges facing communities.

In partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, NACCHO is pleased to offer a funding opportunity to support the convening of an Indian Country Congenital Syphilis Taskforce. This taskforce will bring together individuals from tribal, state, and local public health as well as national organizations to address the unique barriers and follow up to care and provide technical support and advocacy based on the input of its membership. Through this funding opportunity, NACCHO will provide up to $100,000 to one (1) organization to plan, convene, and support the taskforce.

Applications must be submitted by Friday, November 17th at 11:59 PM PT and selections will occur by Wednesday, November 23rd. See the Request for Applications for more details.
