NACCHO Funding Opportunity: Improving HIV Outcomes through Collaboration
Funds are available from NACCHO for up to three local health departments to improve HIV outcomes through collaboration with Community Health Centers.
September 14, 2017
With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP), NACCHO will be offering funding to up to three local health departments (LHDs) to increase LHD and community health center (CHC) capacity to establish meaningful, collaborative, and sustainable partnerships to improve HIV outcomes and reduce health-related disparities. With support and technical assistance from NACCHO, funded LHDs will be responsible for exploring and planning innovative and collaborative approaches with CHCs to improve HIV outcomes within their communities.
Project activities will focus on:
Building local capacity to establish new or enhance existing partnerships between LHDs and CHCs,
Engaging community members in a collaborative action planning process,
Identifying collaborative strategies to improve local HIV outcomes, and
Developing action plans for the implementation of identified strategies.
Application requirements and full details of the project are available in the Request for Applications (RFA). Applications are due by 5:00 pm PST on October 5, 2017. Questions about the RFA and application process can be directed to Mardrequs Harris, Senior Program Analyst, HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis, at email@example.com or 202-783-1418.
