DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MARCH 10, 2023 AT 11:59 PM EST
The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is excited to announce a new funding opportunity. To ensure the success of COVID-19 prevention and mitigation strategies and to address inequities in COVID-19 morbidity and mortality experienced by RIM communities, local health departments (LHDs) need strong and sustained community partnerships, experienced human resources, cross-program infrastructure to support logistics for testing and vaccine delivery at scale, and planning, evaluation, and financial management capacity. This funding opportunity will support LHDs to strengthen partnerships with RIM communities in their jurisdictions and to collaboratively design, implement, and evaluate innovative and sustainable approaches to prevention of COVID 19 and other vaccine preventable diseases.
The goals of this project are to improve COVID-19 prevention, contact tracing and mitigation among RIM populations, reduce inequities in COVID-19 morbidity and mortality in funded jurisdictions, implement and disseminate models and best practices for prevention and mitigation of COVID-19 that are sustainable and have potential to address other communicable diseases among RIM populations in the future, and implement sustainable approaches for community engagement and strengthening partnerships between LHDs and RIM populations and adapting public health strategies for RIM populations.
NACCHO will issue contracts of up to $140,000 to 18 LHD and CBO sites that have existing collaborations between LHDs and RIM serving organizations developed to address COVID 19.
Applications must be submitted by March 10, 2023, at 11:59 PM ET to [email protected], and selections will occur on or around February 3, 2023. The project period will last 12 months upon execution of the contract. All necessary information regarding the project and application process is outlined in the Request for Applications (RFA) attached below.
