New Funding Opportunity for Local Health Department Accreditation Preparation Support

NACCHO is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for local health departments. With funding from the CDC’s Office for State, Tribal, Local, & Territorial Support (OSTLTS), NACCHO will be offering a sixth year of Accreditation Support Initiative (ASI) awards. These awards are intended to stimulate quality improvement and promote the readiness of health departments to seek voluntary national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). In addition to monetary support, selected sites will also receive technical assistance from NACCHO and connections to peers in the field.

Application requirements and full details about the ASI opportunity are provided in the Request for Proposals (RFP) and the Application Document. Access the RFP and Application Document at: www.naccho.org/fees. Applications, via the online submission form, are due by 5pm ET on Wednesday, 8/31/16. Questions about this opportunity can be directed to asi@naccho.org. Questions emailed to this address will be responded to promptly.
