Funding available for Health Impact Assessments by Local Health Departments

With support from CDC’s Healthy Community Design Initiative, the National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) will release in July a competitive funding opportunity for Health Impact Assessments spearheaded by local health departments (LHDs). Applications will be due Aug. 22. Approximately three awards of $15,000 each will be awarded to LHDs to engage in activities that will lead to the completion of an HIA during the project period, approximately September 2014 - May 2015. HIAs should focus on transportation, land use, parks and recreation, community design, or energy. An Informational call about the RFA will be held Tuesday, Aug. 5, from 11 a.m. to Noon. 

Register for the call at https://cc.readytalk.com/cc/s/registrations/new?cid=xxgdyk7gjx1h. Please contact healthycommdesign@naccho.org with any questions.
