Accreditation Support Initiative for Local Public Health Departments
The Accreditation Support Initiative offers funding to local public health departments to support accreditation preparation activities. Funds should be used to increase readiness to achieve Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation.
Applicants will select no more than two categories of work, and one or more deliverables within each category, based on an identified area of need around accreditation readiness.
Categories of work include:
- Participate in or lead a collaborative process resulting in a comprehensive community health assessment
- Develop and implement an agency strategic plan
- Activities leading to a competent workforce, such as the assessment of staff competencies, training and professional development, and the provision of a supportive work environment
- Developing and implementing quality improvement processes
- Progress toward completing other accreditation readiness activities
A sub-cohort of small and rural LHDs will be provided tailored technical assistance and peer networking opportunities intended to support accreditation readiness.
All governmental Local Health Departments (LHDs) that are eligible to apply to PHAB may apply for these funds.
LHDs that have submitted an application to PHAB on or before October 2, 2017 or LHDs that previously received funding under this initiative are ineligible.
Up to $15,000.
