Request for Applications: Healthcare-Associated Infections & Antibiotic Resistance Demonstration Site Project

Nov 05, 2020 | Christina Baum

NACCHO, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Division of Healthcare Quality and Promotion, is pleased to provide funding for a local health department (LHD) healthcare-associated infection (HAI) and antibiotic resistance (AR) demonstration site project. NACCHO will issue awards up to $25,000 each to five LHD demonstration sites for a project period of January 1, 2021 to July 31, 2021. The goal of this project is to support LHD capacity for HAI prevention and response; advance LHD engagement in AR initiatives and activities; enhance coordination with the state health department HAI/AR program; and develop and identify resources, lessons learned, and best practices for other LHDs.

NACCHO will issue awards for LHD demonstration sites proposing programs, initiatives, or activities that address one or more of the following focus areas:

  • Containment of novel or emerging multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs)
    • This can include exploring how prior regional containment activities have impacted infection prevention and control (IPC) practices during COVID-19 and/or how emerging MDROs have changed due to COVID-19
  • Strengthening coordination and collaboration with healthcare facilities and other local or regional partners to prevent and control HAIs, including but not limited to COVID-19
  • LHD and healthcare facility engagement in AR prevention and antibiotic stewardship initiatives

While the above list indicates specific areas of interest for NACCHO and its partners, NACCHO welcomes and will consider applications proposing other programs, initiatives, or activities that strengthen local public health capacity, expertise, and partnerships for prevention and control of HAIs and AR.

In addition to these focus areas, all demonstration sites will be expected to:

  • Participate in monthly calls with NACCHO to monitor progress, facilitate peer-exchange, and provide technical assistance. Technical assistance may include facilitating connections between demonstration sites and partners (e.g., state health departments, healthcare facilities, federal agencies, other national organizations), identifying subject matter experts, making available training opportunities to LHD staff, and providing activity planning and implementation support;
  • Partner with NACCHO to develop new and improve existing resources for LHDs on HAI and AR prevention and control. Activities may include sharing with NACCHO resources identified or developed during the project and providing input on NACCHO-developed resources; and
  • Communicate and coordinate activities with the state health department HAI/AR program
  • Submit an end-of-project report.

Interested?
The request for applications is now available.

  • Application submission deadline: December 4, 2020 by 11:59 pm EST.
  • Anticipated award notification: December 18, 2020.
