Apply for NACCHO’s 2018 Model Practices Awards!

Are you ready to share your best and brightest work with your health department colleagues? NACCHO’s 2018 Model & Promising Practices program honors and recognizes outstanding local health initiatives from across the nation, and shares and promotes these practices among local health departments via the Model Practice Database. Model and Promising Practices cut across all areas of local public health, including community health, environmental health, public health infrastructure and systems, and public health preparedness.

A Model Practice meets the following criteria: LHD role, collaboration, innovation, responsiveness, and evaluation. A Promising Practice exhibits the potential to become a Model Practice, and meets the same criteria of a Model Practice, with some qualitative and quantitative evidence that the practice has potential to improve health outcomes.

Submissions can be made online only at A webinar with general information on applying for the awards will be held at 12pm Eastern on Friday, November 17. Learn how to register for the webinar here.
