NACCHO 2017–2018 Accreditation Support Initiative (ASI) RFP Released

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) has again released a Request for Proposals for the Accreditation Support Initiative (ASI) grants they have provided the past six fiscal years (starting in 2011/12). These grants, up to $15,000, are designed to assist local health departments with stimulating quality improvement and promoting health department readiness to seek national accreditation through PHAB. Project activities include efforts to meet identified PHAB application requirements, the achievement of PHAB standards and measures, and offsetting accreditation fees (up to 50 percent of the total fee).

Information on the RFP can be found on NACCHO’s website here, and applications for the ASI must be submitted by August 30, 2017. NACCHO and the CDC are hosting a teleconference on Thursday, August 17, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm PST, to walk through the RFP and application process.
