NACCHO Solicits Applications for 2022 Model and Innovative Practice Awards

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) recently announced it has begun accepting applications for its 2022 Model and Innovative Practice Awards. Every year, NACCHO’s Model Practices Program nationally honors and recognizes outstanding local public health practice and shares them through the Model Practices Database. Model Practices are awarded to local health departments across the country for implementing programs that demonstrate exemplary and replicable outcomes in response to an identified public health need.

This year, NACCHO is continuing to recognize local public health innovation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic with the Innovative Practice Award. The 2022 Innovative Practice Award will focus on practices that were developed in response to emerging and exacerbated health inequities due to COVID-19 and demonstrate effective community partnerships and collaboration, adaptability and quality improvement, and remarkable innovation.

Applications for both awards are due December 31, 2021. Additional information from NACCHO is available here.
