TOOLKIT: Recommendations and Resources for Public Health Departments Contracting with Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and Community Health Worker Networks

May 20, 2024

This toolkit was developed by the National Association of Community Health Workers (NACHW) as a resource to support Public Health Departments to equitably build relationships and contract with community-based organizations and Community Health Worker Networks.

Those interested are also invited to view the recorded NACHW presentation about this toolkit (below). During this presentation, attendees were provided with a level set and resources on who Community Health Workers (CHWs) are, the importance and value of equitable funding CBOs to support CHW programs, and practical recommendations and resources for health departments looking to begin or strengthen their contracts and partnerships with community-based organizations.

This work is supported by funds made available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Center for STLT Public Health Infrastructure and Workforce, through OE22-2203: Strengthening U.S. Public Health Infrastructure, Workforce, and Data Systems grant.
