NACCHO Funding Opportunity

Request for Proposals: Evaluating Essential Skills and Workforce Training Needs for Local Health Department Staff Engaged in Infection Prevention and Control Activities

Apr 21, 2022 | Erin Laird

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, and district health departments work to protect and improve the health of all people and all communities. NACCHO provides capacity-building resources to LHDs (e.g., trainings, webinars, access to subject matter experts, peer discussion) that support the development and implementation of public health policies and practices.

With support from CDC, NACCHO will award up to $100,000 for a consultant, or consulting firm, to assist NACCHO with the development, implementation, and analysis of an assessment to identify the essential (i.e. “soft”) skills training needs of LHD staff engaged in infection prevention and control (IPC) activities. The selected consultant will work collaboratively with NACCHO, developing assessment tools, collecting data, and synthesizing and analyzing data into a final report.

Proposal Due Date and Time: Monday May 23, 2022, by 5:00 PM ET

Selection Announcement Date: May 30, 2022
Maximum Funding Amount: $100,000
Estimated Period of Performance: The project period will begin upon contract execution (goal of June 15, 2022) and will end July 31, 2022. Contingent on CDC approving a no cost extension, the project may continue (with a contract modification) to end no later than September 30, 2022.
Point of Contact: infectiousdiseases@naccho.org
