NACCHO is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for local health departments (LHDs). With support from CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH), NACCHO will be offering funding and technical assistance to up to four LHDs to increase their capacity to work in partnership with the local education agency (LEA) and other key community stakeholders in their jurisdiction to prevent adolescent HIV/STD infections through the implementation of DASH school-based approaches. The project will result in the joint development of action plans that the LHDs and LEAs will implement while participating in learning and engagement opportunities with the other selected recipients. This project is an exciting opportunity to develop and expand adolescent HIV/STD prevention activities and strengthen partnerships with key collaborators.
NACCHO hosted an informational webinar for potential applicants on May 15, 2017. If you were unable to attend, the webinar recording and the presentation slides are now available for viewing, along with FAQs. Application requirements and full details of the project are available in the Request for Applications (RFA). Applications are due by 11:59pm PST on June 9, 2017. Questions about the RFA and application process can be directed to Kat Kelley, Program Analyst, HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-507-4223.
