The Achieving SDOH Population Improvement in Rural Environments (ASPIRE) Award program provides monetary awards for local health departments that recognize excellence in rural communities that are committed to addressing the social determinants of health.

NACCHO asks applicants to consider a single practice, strategy, policy, program, or initiative that is part of the larger community health improvement plan to submit for consideration. The practice should be clearly defined by goals and objectives and should include short and long-term outcome measures.


All local health departments who serve a predominantly rural jurisdiction are eligible to apply.
