With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is pleased to offer a training funding opportunity for local health departments (LHDs) and their partnering child welfare and justice-related organizations to integrate the Strengthening Families (SF) and Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences (HOPE) frameworks into their work with families and children. Approximately five awards of up to $65,000 each will be awarded. LHDs who have established relationships with child welfare and/or justice-involved partners are encouraged to apply. Project proposals must include letters of commitment from at least one eligible partner (examples can be found in the RFP).
The SSIF training project will assist organizations in shifting their work with families impacted by substance use disorder from a deficit- to an asset-based model to improve provider-family relationships, reduce biases, and improve family outcomes. As part of this program, the selected participants will receive training on the HOPE and SF frameworks and individualized technical assistance (TA).
Full details of the project goals and application requirements can be found in the Request for Proposals. Applications must be submitted using NACCHO’s online application portal, no later than Monday, October 16th, 2023, at 5:00PM EST. Submissions after this deadline will not be considered. This will be a fixed-price, deliverables-based contract. Applicants may pose individual questions to NACCHO at any point during the application process by emailing the Injury Violence and Prevention Team at [email protected].
NACCHO invites interested applicants to participate in an informational webinar on Wednesday September 27th (10:00 - 11:00 AM ET). Register here. Participants are encouraged to come with any questions they may have regarding this opportunity. The webinar recording and an accompanying FAQ document covering all questions received to date will be posted on NACCHO’s OIVP webpage.
