NACCHO HIA Mentorship Project
The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO is partnering once again with the Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, to increase the use of Health Impact Assessments (HIAs) among local health departments (LHDs). LHDs supported under the projects will receive peer-to-peer assistance and intensive technical support, thereby advancing the practice of HIA among LHD-based practitioners and increasing the number of HIAs completed in the United States. NACCHO is seeking applicants for both HIA mentors experienced in conducting HIAs and mentees new to the HIA process, interested in receiving assistance and technical support, and involved in a coalition planning to conduct a HIA. Mentors and mentees will be paired according to technical assistance needs. All interested and eligible LHDs and individuals are encouraged to apply.
