Objective and Background
The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) seeks to partner with up to four (4) organizations to support Best/Promising Practices for COVID-19 Health Equity with the review of evidence-based practices and/or best or promising practices collected through an environmental scan to aid/inform OT21-2103 grant recipient selection of interventions and strategies that take a systems approach or address upstream social and structural determinants of health related to COVID-19.
CDC has recently awarded $2.25 billion in awards to state, local, and US territorial and freely associated public health departments through OT21-2103, National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities. OT21-2103 represents CDC’s largest investment to date focusing specifically on reducing health disparities related to COVID-19. NNPHI will engage the health strategist workforce and national partners to support over one hundred OT21-2103 grant recipients in the assessment, translation, and dissemination of evidence-based practices (EBPs), and/or best or promising practices to address COVID-19 related disparities associated with at-risk and underserved populations, including racial/ethnic minorities and rural communities.
Collaborating with CDC, ASTHO and NACCHO, NNPHI will provide technical assistance to OT21-2103 grantees across the four OT21-2103 grant strategies.
