PPHF 2013 OSTLTS Partnerships Building Capacity of the Public Health System to Improve Population Health through National, Nonprofit Organizations Financed in Part by 2013 Prevention and Public Health Funds

Grant Amounts: Approximate Total Project Period Funding: Category A: $180 million; Category B: $75 million; Category C: $45 million.

This FOA provides funding for CBA work with target populations under three headings: Category A: Governmental Public Health Departments, Category B: Workforce Segments across Governmental Public Health Departments, and Category C: Nongovernmental Public Health Components. Organizations may submit no more than two stand-alone applications total. If two applications are submitted, they can address two distinct target populations within a single category or two distinct target populations across two different categories.

The purpose of this program is to ensure the provision of CBA for governmental and nongovernmental components of the public health system to optimize the quality and performance of public health systems, the public health workforce, public health data and information systems, public health practice and services, public health partnerships, and public health resources.

The applicant’s CBA program is expected to demonstrate measurable progress among governmental and nongovernmental components of the public health system toward two or more of the following outcomes: (1) increased adoption of new or proven business improvements that lead to management and administrative efficiencies or cost savings; (2) increased availability and accessibility of continuing education and training focused on public health competencies and new skills, including the use of experience-based internships and fellowships; (3) increased incorporation of core public health competencies into employee position descriptions and performance evaluations; (4) increased integration of state-of-the-art technology into data collection and information systems; (5) Increased implementation of evidence-based public health programs, policies, and services; (6) improved capacity to meet nationally established standards, such as those for health department accreditation; (7) establishment and maintenance of diverse public health partnerships for meaningful cooperation and achievement of evidence-based public health strategies and interventions, such as the CDC Winnable Battles; and (8) improved quality, availability, and accessibility of public health education, training, and evaluation tools and resources.
