NACDD 2012 Achieve Funding/Technical Assistance Requests Application Period Open

The 2012 Action Communities for Innovation and Environmental Change (ACHIEVE) Request for Funding and Technical Assistance applications has been released by the National Association of Chronic Disease DirectorsThere are two different types of Requests for Funding Assistance awards and one Request for Technical Assistance award.

The 2012 ACHIEVE Community Request for Funding Assistance seeks applications from local community coalitions or other local or regionally-based organizations. The five selected communities will collaborate with the State Health Department's (SHD) Chronic Disease Program, as well as NACDD, an assigned community mentor, and other national partners.

The 2012 State Request for Technical Assistance will award technical assistance and travel stipends to states that collaborate with the newly funded 2012 NACDD ACHIEVE communities to provide state-based technical assistance and support to these teams throughout the duration of the two-year project period. A state application is a required component of the 2012 ACHIEVE Community application.

New this year is the 2012 ACHIEVE Mentor Request for Funding Assistance. Up to five current NACDD ACHIEVE communities from cohort years 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 are eligible to apply for this sustainability funding award. NACDD has approximately $200,000 available to fund up to 5 ACHIEVE mentor communities at $40,000 each to designate one lead mentor coach and one partner mentor coach to provide applied technical assistance and support to newly funded NACDD 2012 ACHIEVE Communities.
