With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO is pleased to offer a funding opportunity to provide support for rural local health departments across the country by evaluating the current public health emergency preparedness (PHEP) capabilities and developing rural specific PHEP capabilities. The purpose of this project is to increase the preparedness and response capacity of LHDs that serve rural and frontier jurisdictions to effectively respond to, recover from, and build community resiliency related to the COVID pandemic and future public health emergencies.
Through this RFP, the consultant will assess the capacity of rural local health departments to meet a foundational set of capabilities for public health preparedness, assist with three workgroup meetings and five regional listening sessions, and assist with reviewing all data collected to develop rural specific PHEP capabilities. This consultant will also participate and coordinate their efforts with NACCHO and other project providers through regular check-in meetings.
