Public Health Infrastructure and Systems

Every tool and resource it takes to keep your local health department running.


Local public health infrastructure includes the systems, competencies, frameworks, relationships, and resources that enable public health agencies to perform their core functions and essential services. Infrastructure categories encompass human, organizational, informational, legal, policy, and fiscal resources.

NACCHO's infrastructure and systems programs create tools to build local health department infrastructure and systems; collect, analyze, and disseminate knowledge and insights from demonstration and pilot sites; lead trainings, informatics, and MAPP; and conduct research to strengthen local health department infrastructure by informing public policy and identifying needs.

With support from the Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC CSTLTS), NACCHO is offering an opportunity for statewide public health associations to provide customized training and technical assistance to local public health departments (LHDs) for performance improvement or community health improvement work.

The Request for Applications (RFA) will be released on Monday, October 3, 2022, and all requests must be submitted no later than Monday, November 7, 2022, at 5 PM EST. Please note that requests will NOT be accepted on a rolling basis, and all requests must be submitted by this date.

Applicants are able to request a consultation and guidance session with CDC CSTLTS and NACCHO to provide input and feedback on proposed ideas and to learn more about the request and the type of support that best fits the applicant and the needs of their target audience.

CDC CSTLTS and NACCHO will host an informational webinar on Thursday, October 6 at 3:004:00pm EDT, where interested applicants will have the opportunity to learn more about the opportunity, including changes to the request process and timeline, and ask questions. Webinar attendees will also have an opportunity to hear from previous recipients.
