NACCHO is excited to announce that profiles of MRC Challenge Award Winners are now live on mrcnaccho.org. Visit the site to learn more about the 29 Challenge Award winners’ unit composition and project goals. Challenge Award winners have posted blog, photo, and video updates and will continue to provide more summaries and resources as their projects progress.
The Challenge Award is a competitive funding opportunity that supports MRC units to develop new projects and programs that can be replicated on a national level. Nearly 200 MRC units from across the United States applied for the award and the top 29 most promising applicants were selected to receive the award in late 2013.
NACCHO has also posted video interviews featuring eight Challenge Awardees filmed during the 2014 Preparedness Summit. View the playlist on NACCHO’s YouTube page to learn more about the projects Challenge Awardees are implementing in their communities.
