Description: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 funds for Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO) PS20-2003: STD/HIV Disease Intervention Training Centers (DITC). Purpose: The purpose of this NOFO is to strengthen capacity of local and state health departments to conduct STD/HIV intervention services. The intent is to transform Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS) training through expanded training content, consistent with the DIS Certification Job Task Analysis (JTA) core competencies, and enhanced knowledge to support the changing role of DIS and National DIS Certification. Training will standardize skill sets to facilitate cross-jurisdictional response, achieve staff proficiency to implement effective public health interventions, and contribute to the reduction of STD and HIV incidence. Program Strategies: Recipients will constitute a network of curriculum development and training centers, charged with collaborative implementation of a nationally standardized training program, for local and state health jurisdictions, throughout the United States. Available funding is categorized in three areas of focus: 1) national online knowledge-based curriculum development; 2) national instructor-led skills-based curriculum development; and 3) regional instructor-led skills-based training. Outcomes: Recipients’ performance will be measured by: increased CDC-approved trainings available in eLearning, in-person, or blended learning formats; increased knowledge and skills of DIS and supervisors; and increased capacity of health departments to conduct effective client-level STD/HIV disease intervention tasks performed by DIS.
