NACCHO, with support from the Center for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is pleased to offer Year 2 of a technical assistance (TA) opportunity, Strong Systems, Stronger Communities (SSSC) TA Cohorts for local health departments (LHDs). The SSSC initiative provides support to health departments in completing projects to improve their performance, meet national accreditation standards, and promote interconnection across the public health system to improve population health.

Through the 2019-2020 SSSC TA Cohorts, NACCHO will support LHDs in moving upstream to address social determinants of health and health equity by improving the implementation of the community health improvement plan (CHIP), using principles of quality improvement. Each team will hold an Equity Action Lab with their communities, in which they will identify a meaningful goal and design rapid-cycle improvement tests to achieve gains within a short period of time. This training and TA opportunity will include travel to a workshop in Washington, D.C., along with virtual training and TA throughout the project period.

Applications are now open through 5 PM ET on Friday, October 25. For the full RFP and application, please visit the NACCHO Performance Improvement webpage
