Request for Proposals to Develop Training Tools and Resources to Support Understanding of Environmental Justice in Local Health Departments

Feb 29, 2024 | Andrea Grenadier

NACCHO is offering a funding opportunity for a consultant(s) to provide expert training and technical assistance (TTA) to build the health equity capacity of local health departments and their community partners, as a part of the CDC’s National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities Department of Health and Human Services (CDC-RFA-OT21-2103), hereafter referred to as the COVID Health Equity Initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to address COVID-19-related health inequities and advance health equity by expanding state, local, U.S. territorial, and freely associated state health department capacity and services.

The intended outcomes of the 2103 grant are to reduce COVID-19-related health disparities, improve and increase testing and contact tracing among populations at higher risk and that are underserved, including racial and ethnic minority groups and people living in rural communities, and improve state, local, U.S. territorial and freely associated state health department capacity and services to prevent and control COVID-19 infection (or transmission) among populations at higher risk and that are underserved, including racial and ethnic minority groups and people living in rural communities.

The focus of this RFP is to support OT21-2103 grant recipients by creating tools that facilitate their engagement and services to Environmental Justice communities in their area. NACCHO seeks qualified consultants that can identify successful outreach and engagement strategies that have worked in practice at the LHD level and develop practical tools (training, micro-learnings, key guides, etc.) for their use by LHDs. Additionally, the use of innovative and emerging learning methodologies and templates are encouraged, including video, audio (must be 508 compliant), and other interactive methods for demonstrating the use of the tool(s) designed for the LHDs. The tools should be practical in use and able to reach a wide variety of adult learners working in, or alongside, local health departments. Additionally, consultants who apply to this RFP should have knowledge of the intersectionality of Environmental Justice with Health Equity.

Applications are due on Friday, March 15, 2024, at 11:59pm ET. For more information and to apply, click here.
