New Funding Opportunity: Lessons in INfection Control Initiative

Through support from CDC, NACCHO is pleased to offer the LINC (Lessons in INfection Control) Initiative funding opportunity for local health departments (LHDs). NACCHO will award at least 10 LHDs up to $25,000 each to improve both healthcare and community infection control and enhance coordination for preparing and responding to Ebola, healthcare-associated infections, and other emerging infectious diseases through strengthened local public health organizational and administrative capacity, expertise, and partnerships with key stakeholders. NACCHO challenges LHDs to bolster existing and/or test new or different approaches to address these areas and advance local public health’s prevention, preparedness, readiness, and response efforts for infections that spread across healthcare and community settings. Applications must be submitted by February 5, 2016 at 5:00PM PST; view the Request for Applications (RFA) to learn more.

NACCHO hosted an informational webinar for potential applicants on January 8. Listen to the audio from the webinar.
