Once accredited, a public health department remains accredited for five years. In order to maintain national accreditation, the health department must apply for and achieve reaccreditation. The requirements and process to become reaccredited are different from those for initial accreditation. Below are some resources to help you understand what is involved in reaccreditation.


Accreditation coordinators from local health departments that have applied to PHAB are invited to join NACCHO’s Accreditation Coordinators Learning Community. This group provides a space for accreditation coordinators to network with peers, share effective practices and lessons learned, and find answers to their questions.
