Saturday, May 08, 2021

The HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis team is excited to share a new funding opportunity for LHDs. I’ve included two blurbs below, which vary in size, depending on how much space you have in your respective newsletters or other dissemination channels. Please disseminate through any appropriate channels, including the Membership Newsletter (Dominic/Scout/John), the various COVID channels (Tori), any Programs team newsletters (IDI, Prep team) relevant to infectious diseases, health equity, or any other relevant topics, and any upcoming NACCHO-wide newsletters (Marcomm). Please let me know if you need any additional information from us to disseminate.

Funding Opportunity: COVID-19 Prevention & Mitigation Among Refugee, Immigrant, & Migrant Communities

NACCHO is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for local health departments (LHDs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) to partner to rapidly to scale up innovative COVID-19 education, testing, contact tracing, vaccination, and other prevention and mitigation strategies with refugee, immigrant, and migrant (RIM) communities. With support from CDC, NACCHO will provide funding and technical assistance to LHDs and their RIM community partners to implement at least one primary prevention strategy (for up to $175,000) with the option of implementing a secondary primary or secondary prevention activity (for up to $250,000).

 

Potential applicants are encouraged to reach out to RIM-serving organizations or leaders in their communities or the LHD in their jurisdiction to partner to submit an application. LHDs and CBOs/RIM communities applying for this funding opportunity do not need to have a history of partnership, but must demonstrate the intent to partner (i.e., through a Memorandum of Understanding or Letter of Support).

 

Applications are due June 11, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT. Access the Request for Applications here. Register for an optional webinar, to be held on Monday, May 17 at 1 PM ET, here.

 

Best,
Kat
