Funding Opportunities- September 4th, 2015

New Health Impact Assessment Funding Opportunity
Through support from the CDC, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is pleased to offer two funding opportunities for up to six Local Health Departments (LHDs).  The funding opportunities are as follows:

Component A: Component A includes funding of up to $15,000 each for up to three LHDs to complete a Health Impact Assessment (HIA).

Component B: Component B includes funding of up to $5,000 each for up to three LHDs to conduct a HIA or HIA-like activity using at least one of three tools and provide an evaluation of the utility of the resource for conducting HIAs and HIA-like work.  LHDs must use and evaluate one of the following three tools to be eligible for the funding: CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Network; the CDC/National Park Service Parks, Trails and Health Workbook and/or the CDC Healthy Community Design Checklist Toolkit.

LHDs conducting or planning to conduct an HIA have the option of applying for both of these funding opportunities. An HIA-like activity is defined as: a limited desk-top examination of a proposed policy, plan or program which focuses on less than three health impacts. Interested LHDs can find the full Request for Proposals here, and the application for both funding opportunities here.

NACCHO and CDC staff held an optional teleconference call for interested applicants for both funding opportunities on Thursday, August 20, 2015 but has indicated that the call will be recorded and posted to the NACCHO HIA website for those unable to participate.

Completed applications are due Thursday, September 10, 2015. If you have outstanding questions after reading the RFP in detail, e-mail healthycommdesign@naccho.org or email the funding contact:
