Model Practices

​NACCHO strives to recognize the best local public health practices in the country. This is why we created the Model Practices Awards.


NACCHO’s Model Practices Program nationally honors and recognizes outstanding local public health practice and shares the outstanding practices through the Model Practices Database. By submitting a practice, LHDs contribute to the overall improvement of public health through effective evidence-based practice methods.

All Model Practices winners will be recognized at the NACCHO Annual 2019 (Orlando, July 9-11) Grand Awards Ceremony. If your local health department would like to apply for a Model Practice Award, or if you want to learn more about NACCHO’s past Model Practice Awardees, you’ve come to the right place!

You can find a full listing of past Model Practice Awardees in our Model Practices Database.
