    RFA Opportunity: Seeking Mentors for Health Equity and Overdose Prevention Mentorship Program 

    NACCHO, with support from the CDC, is continuing to accept applications to participate in our Health Equity and Overdose Prevention Mentorship Program (details available on our webpage). At this time, we’re actively recruiting for mentors only. Our mentors are really the backbone of our program, and we want to make sure that we have enough to support our mentees. As such, we are extending the mentor application submission deadline to Friday, October 7, 2022. In addition, we’ve increased the amount of funding from up to $20,000 per mentee to up to $50,000 per mentee. The new project period of performance will be from contract execution, (approximately) November 2022 to July 2023. 


    The RFA can be accessed here. Please view our webpage for the recording of our August Info Session and FAQs. Final applications are due via email to by Friday, October 7, 2022, at 8:00pm ET.
