Technical Assistance for Health Departments
CDC recognizes that health departments already face tough choices about how to make the best use of limited funds. We believe that this new approach will increase the impact of prevention efforts on the national HIV epidemic, and are committed to helping our partners develop and implement the most effective HIV prevention strategies and navigate any changes introduced by this funding opportunity.
Health departments will have access to technical support through multiple channels, including a series of technical briefings; ongoing counsel from CDC project officers, Prevention Training Centers, and CDC-supported capacity-building providers on infrastructure, financial management, and implementation; and peer-to-peer support facilitated by NASTAD, UCHAPS, and other CDC partners. For health departments that see a decrease in funding based on the new approach, CDC will offer post-award site visits and more in-depth assistance to help them achieve the greatest impact from available funds.
