New HiAP Funding Opportunity Coming in November
In November, NCHH, in collaboration with the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), the National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO), and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), will offer a new funding opportunity for local governmental agencies housing their jurisdiction’s childhood lead poisoning programs (i.e., local health departments, local environmental health agencies). The funding will support their agency to implement a Health in All Policies strategy as part of their lead prevention implementation program and activities. Examples of sponsored activities can include building or enhancing a lead coalition and setting up joint meetings with partners to increase screening and case management. Up to three entities will be awarded a maximum funding amount of $20,000 each, as well as technical assistance from these national partners along the way. For more information about the application, sign up for the funding announcement listserv here.
As of November 6, this funding opportunity is now open. Read the full announcement.
