The overall objective of the mentorship program is to match LHD practitioners experienced in applying the Program Standards with LHDs currently or newly enrolled in the Program Standards and looking for guidance, tools, resources, and recommendations for achieving a standard or standards. This opportunity will provide capacity building and networking opportunities among the LHDs participating in the mentorship program.


The anticipated amount awarded to each selected mentor LHD will range from $8,000-18,000, depending on the number of mentees that will be taken on by the mentor. The application deadline is on November 9, 2012 at 8:00 PM EST.


This initiative is funded by a cooperative agreement between NACCHO and the Food and Drug Administration.
