Apply Now for the 2020 Vector Control Collaborative Technical Assistance Program

NACCHO is now accepting applications for the Vector Control Collaborative (VCC) technical assistance program. NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have established the VCC to match local vector control programs with demonstrated expertise in the ten vector control capabilities with mosquito and/or tick control programs currently looking for guidance, tools, and resources, and recommendations to build program capability.

Participants in the VCC will be provided a mentor who will visit their program to provide on-site technical assistance in vector surveillance and control. Selected programs will also be awarded funds to visit their mentor’s site and shadow their program. NACCHO will award nine vector control programs with $1,400 to participate in the VCC and cover site visit expenses.

    Hi Michelle,

    Is this program going to focus solely on mosquito control and mosquito-borne diseases? While Massachusetts experienced (and going to experience again in 2020) an extensive EEE outbreak this year, we are on top of it in terms of mosquito control. What we need is support on tick control and tickborne diseases.

    Thanks.

    Sam.
