The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have announced the second year of funding for Strong Systems, Stronger Communities (SSSC) for local health departments (LHDs) - applications due October 25, 2019.
Through the 2019-2020 SSSC TA Cohorts, NACCHO will support LHDs in moving upstream to address social determinants of health and health equity by accelerating progress on the implementation of a community health improvement plan (CHIP) using principles of quality improvement. This training and TA opportunity will support a cohort of up to seven LHDs, providing virtual and an in-person training, individual technical assistance from NACCHO, and peer networking. Each team will hold an Equity Action Lab with their communities, during which they will identify a meaningful goal and design rapid-cycle improvement tests to achieve gains within a short period of time.
Please email NACCHO staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
