Request for Proposals: Climate and Health Adaptation in Local Health Departments

Nov 26, 2018 | Michelle Shapiro

NACCHO supports local efforts to track, prevent, and mitigate the health effects of climate change. These efforts include (1) incorporating adaptation planning into land use, housing, and transportation design; (2) preparing communities for extreme and unusual environmental events; and (3) coordinating with local governments on all-hazards disaster planning. NACCHO supports implementation of existing policies and procedures (e.g., CDC BRACE framework) and integration of climate change into ongoing performance improvement measures (e.g., Public Health Accreditation). Learn more in NACCHO’s Climate Change Policy Statement.

With support from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO intends to award up to two entities with a maximum of $15,000 each to supplement ongoing climate change and health adaptation initiatives in local health departments.

Applicants should be local government entities or other local organizations working in climate change and health. They should have experience working in local climate change and health initiatives and have current projects in climate and health that would benefit from supplemental funding. Priority will be given to applicants who have experience working with NACCHO on climate-related projects.

Applications are due on Friday, December 14th at 11:59pm ET. Awardees will be notified via email by January 2, 2019, and applicants not selected to receive an award will be notified via email by January 11, 2019.

Learn more and apply.
