Request For Proposals: Overdose Response Strategy Pilot Project Technical Assistance Meeting Facilitation

Jan 26, 2022 | Audrey Eisemann

NACCHO is pleased to offer a funding opportunity for a skilled facilitator to aid the six Overdose Response Strategy (ORS) sites in strategic planning related to (1) developing and expanding public health and public safety partnerships and effectively engaging people with lived experience, and (2) project implementation and sustainability through both in-person and virtual meetings. One award of up to $75,000 is available.

The ORS [https://www.hidtaprogram.org/ors.php] is a public health and public safety collaboration between CDC and the Office of National Drug Control Policy’s (ONDCP) High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program, supporting joint efforts to reduce overdose deaths at the local, state, and regional level. These six (6) pilot projects represent sites that are in different stages of their response to the overdose epidemic. These projects use a variety of strategies that address drug overdose prevention strategies that engage both local public health and public safety organizations. The major deliverables of this RFP are:

Facilitate In-Person Meetings

Facilitate meetings in-person unless the decision is made by CDC, NACCHO, and the consultant to hold these meetings virtually based on COVID -19 health and safety considerations. If the meetings are virtual, the consultant will be expected to adapt all meeting materials to best fit a virtual environment;

  • The first meeting (April 2022) will focus on developing and expanding cross-sector public health and public safety partnerships and effectively engaging people with lived experience throughout the lifecycle (planning, implementation, expansion, evaluation, etc.) of a program.
  • The second meeting (July 2022) will focus on project implementation and sustainability.

Facilitate Individual Virtual Check-Ins with ORS Sites

  • The virtual check-ins will be held between the two in-person meetings in April 2022 (focus on public health-public safety partnerships and engaging people with lived experience) and July 2022 (focus on project implementation and sustainability) and should be used to identify the strengths and needs of the ORS sites to inform the July 2022 in-person meeting.

Sustainability Resource for Overdose Response and Prevention Pilot Programs

  • In conjunction with NACCHO and CDC, the consultant will develop a resource to support the pilot sites in long-term sustainability planning. This will be informed by the meetings with the ORS sites, as well as existing resources in the field to avoid duplication.

View the Request for Proposals for full details about this project. Applications must be submitted no later than 11:59 PM Eastern, February 11, 2022. Applicants may pose individual questions to NACCHO at any point during the application process by e-mailing Audrey Eisemann (aeisemann@naacho.org).
