Request For Applications: Strengthening Capacity in Suicide, Overdose, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Prevention for Local Health Departments

Jan 20, 2022 | Andrea Grenadier

With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO is pleased to offer a new funding opportunity aimed at supporting local health departments (LHDs) build and sustain their capacity to address the intersection of suicide, overdose, and ACEs in their jurisdictions.

This funding opportunity provides awardees with one-on-one technical assistance to help LHDs translate their results from the newly developed SPACECAT into action guidance, improving internal capacity to address the intersection of suicide, overdose, and ACEs. The SPACECAT tool, developed with support from the CDC and in collaboration with the Association for State and Territorial Health Officials, assesses agency capacity across these three domains to help LHDs identify cross-cutting strengths, needs, and gaps in their prevention strategies.

NACCHO will select up to 10 local health departments, providing up to $20,000 each for this funding opportunity. NACCHO will consider geographic distribution, jurisdictional characteristics, and population size to ensure diversity in LHDs selected.

All interested applicants must complete the SPACECAT tool and include their assessment results as part of their application package. Applicants who did not complete the SPACECAT as part of the national fielding should contact NACCHO’s Injury and Violence Prevention Team at IVP@naccho.org to receive a unique hyperlink to complete the tool. Additional information about the tool and related resources can be found on NACCHO’s Intersection of Suicide, Overdose, and Adverse Childhood Experiences webpage.

Applications should be submitted using NACCHO’s online portal and are due Friday, February 18, 2022 by 5pm EST. Submissions after this deadline will not be considered. Please contact IVP@naccho.org with any questions.
