Building Local Health Department Capacity to Support HCV Screening and Linkage to Care

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is pleased to offer a funding opportunity for a consultant to assist in supporting and promoting the local health department role in hepatitis C virus (HCV) screening and linkage to care.

The consultant will serve as a subject matter expert for a NACCHO project aimed at increasing local health department awareness and knowledge of HCV screening and linkage to care strategies, practices, and policies.

Approximately $15,000 is available for this opportunity. Proposals must be submitted by June 15, 2015 at 11:59 PM EST. A selection will be made by June 30.
