During the month of November, PPHR applicants responded to reviewer requests for additional evidence for certain PPHR criteria elements. Reviewers then reassessed their scores for these elements based on the new materials provided, with NACCHO staff providing technical assistance. Reviewers will reconcile their adjusted scores with those of their teammates during conference calls with NACCHO staff in December.
NACCHO is also working with 2014 PPHR applicants, providing technical assistance to LHDs from Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Tennessee, and Virginia. NACCHO continues to work to engage prospective applicants for future review cycles.
