The Healthcare Georgia Foundation has announced two funding opportunities for a Georgia Public Health District Accreditation Pilot Program.
The first Request for Proposal (RFP) is to enhance the accreditation process for public health districts. The RFP states:
The purposes of this funding opportunity are to improve the quality and performance of the public health system in Georgia, to assist public health districts in evaluating and restructuring their infrastructure and to align resources with performance. To accomplish this, the Foundation will provide support to facilitate the successful submission of public health district accreditation applications.
The second RFP would provide technical assistance in these accreditation efforts. The RFP states:
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to identify a technical assistance provider to guide and facilitate the efforts of the recipients of the Foundation’s district public health grant awards. The technical assistance provider will develop a plan to assist public health districts in Georgia to conduct the prerequisites required by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) and will provide direct support and assistance to the Foundation’s grantees in their accreditation efforts.
Applications are due July 20, 2012.
