Description: This announcement solicits applications for the Public Health Capacity track of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) National Organizations for State and Local Officials (NOSLO) Program. The NOSLO cooperative agreement has three application tracks: 1. Health Legislation and Governance (HRSA-20-092), 2. Health Care Payment and Financing (HRSA-20-093), and 3. Public Health Capacity (HRSA-20-084) The purpose of the NOSLO program is to support capacity-building activities that expand and strengthen the health care safety net system, with the goal of improving delivery of essential health care services, particularly where they are most needed and for underserved populations. The term capacity building is used here to reflect actions that build, strengthen, and maintain the necessary competencies and resources needed to sustain or improve system, organizational, or community processes resulting in health service delivery. Such activities can also include the essential assistance, guidance, and support of others who are acting more directly to improve the delivery of essential health care services to populations at need – so long as these more indirect means of support result in measureable outcomes. Capacity building activities supported through NOSLO include technical assistance, training, information sharing, technology transfer, materials development, funding, or other agreed-to actions that enable HRSA’s stakeholder organizations to operate in a comprehensive, responsive, coordinated, and effective manner. The goal of the NOSLO program is to fund national organizations that have a history of successful capacity-building activities, a national reach, and expertise and resources relevant to supporting HRSA’s mission and goals, and capacity for achieving demonstrable outcomes. The main focus areas for work HRSA aims to achieve through the NOSLO program include: · health systems-related leadership and workforce; · data and information exchange; · communication and information technology; · partnerships; · laws and policies;, and · programs and services. The Public Health Capacity track will target public health officials and organizations, supporting integrated systems of care, promoting community partnerships, and strengthening the health care workforce to improve the health of vulnerable and underserved populations.
