Request for Applications: Overdose Prevention and Response Mentorship Program

Nov 27, 2019 | Kim Rodgers

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is pleased to announce a funding opportunity to local health departments (LHDs) through a Request for Application (RFA) process. With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO is offering a funding opportunity to participate in a new mentorship program with peer local health departments (LHDs) to learn, share experience, and implement a program related to community overdose prevention and response activities through the Overdose Prevention and Response Mentorship Program. This mentorship program is designed to:

  • Pair LHDs that have experience in developing overdose prevention or response programs in key strategy areas (see below) with peer LHDs interested in receiving assistance, guidance, tools and resources to start planning or expanding their jurisdiction’s response.
  • Spread model and evidence-informed overdose prevention and response practices.
  • Establish a network of LHDs that can learn from each other and share tools and resources on overdose prevention and response activities.
  • Improve NACCHO and CDC’s understanding of challenges and facilitators in disseminating best practices in the field and identifying needs for planning new programs.

The project period of performance will be from contract execution, (approximately) January 2020 to July 31, 2020. Each selected mentee will receive funding of $50,000 to complete the program and associated deliverables. The amount awarded to each selected mentor will be contingent on the number of eligible applications received (mentoring one (1) mentee: $50,000; mentoring two (2) mentees: $100,000; mentoring three (3) mentees: $150,000). NACCHO plans to announce the selected agencies on the week of January 6, 2020. Funding estimates for the overall program and for individual projects may change.

There are separate mentee and mentor applications; requirements and full details of the project are available in the respective RFAs. Applications must be submitted to NACCHO’s Overdose Prevention Team at opioidepidemic@naccho.org by December 20th, 2019, at 8:00pm ET. Submissions after this deadline will not be considered.
