NACCHO is the voice of close to 3,000 local health departments (LHDs) across the country. These city, county, metropolitan, district, and tribal departments work to protect and improve the health of all people and all communities. NACCHO provides resources to help LHD leaders develop public health policies and programs to ensure that communities have access to the vital programs and services people need to keep them protected from disease and disaster. Additionally, NACCHO advocates on behalf of LHDs with federal policymakers for adequate resources, appropriate public health legislation, and sensible policies to address the myriad of public health challenges facing communities.
LHDs and health centers are critical health safety-net providers whose roles integrating public health and healthcare are key to protecting and improving population health. NACCHO and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) are interested in better understanding the impact of COVID-19 on these partnerships and the adaptations made among LHD-health center partnerships for both COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, but also to other service delivery, including tuberculosis (TB) prevention and control.
With funding from HRSA, NACCHO will award up to $75,000 total for a consultant, or consulting firm, to identify key lessons learned, barriers, facilitators, innovations, and opportunities related to LHD-health center partnerships engaged in COVID-19 response, inclusive of impacts on TB prevention and control, and other services. The selected consultant will collect information through a mixed method approach (e.g., surveys, focus groups, key informant interviews), produce a summary report of findings and develop a series of a minimum of three (3) case studies to further strengthen LHD-health center partnerships and collaborations.
