Apply Now: Strong Systems, Stronger Communities – TA for Performance Improvement

NACCHO, with support from CDC’s Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (CSTLTS), is offering a new technical assistance opportunity, “Strong Systems, Stronger Communities” (SSSC) TA Cohorts. SSSC will support local health departments (LHDs) in completing public health performance improvement projects through a tailored training and TA program. While no monetary awards will be given, SSSC will provide training and technical assistance to up to eight LHDs, including an in-person training in Washington, DC. Through the SSSC TA cohorts, NACCHO aims to help LHDs and communities use performance improvement methods and tools to improve population health and address the SDoH across the local public health system. SSSC TA Cohorts will focus on two categories of work:

  • Quality improvement (QI) activities to improve population health
  • Addressing the social determinants of health (SDoH) through the community health improvement planning (CHIP)

NACCHO and CDC will host an optional webinar on Tuesday, December 11th from 3:00-4pm ET to provide an overview of the request for proposals (RFP) and application. No new information will be shared during the call; as such, applicants need not wait for this optional call to begin or submit applications. Please register if you plan to attend the webinar. A recording will be posted online two days following the event. For the full RFP and application, please visit NACCHO’s Performance Improvement Technical Assistance.webpage.

    Good morning,

    I am inquiring as to whether the announcement has been made as to the recipients of the SSSC TA cohort. I applied on behalf of my LHD, and our administrative staff would like to know the results.

    Thank you,

    Tara Tucker
