NACCHO, CDC Announce Technical Assistance Opportunity for LHDs

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), with support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has announced a continuation of a technical assistance opportunity, “Strong Systems, Stronger Communities,” to local health departments. NACCHO will support LHDs in moving upstream to address social determinants of health and health equity by improving the implementation of the community health improvement plan. Each team will hold an Equity Action Lab with their communities in which they will identify a meaningful goal and design rapid-cycle improvement tests to achieve gains within a short period of time.

Applications are now open through October 25. NACCHO and CDC will host an optional webinar on October 8 from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm to provide details around the RFP process. Applications and additional information are available here.
