Deadline Passed 12/14/2018. Deadline Unknown for 2019. The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) supports local efforts to track, prevent, and mitigate the health effects of climate change. According to the NACCHO Climate Change Policy Statement, these efforts include (1) the incorporation of adaptation planning into land use, housing, and transportation design; (2) preparing communities for extreme and unusual environmental events; and (3) coordinating with local governments on all-hazards disaster planning. NACCHO supports implementing existing policies and procedures (e.g., CDC BRACE framework) and integrating climate change into ongoing performance improvement measures (e.g., Public Health Accreditation). NACCHO, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), intends to award up to two entities with a maximum of $15,000 each. The purpose of this funding is to supplement ongoing climate change and health adaptation initiatives in local health departments.
