PPHR reviewers began reviewing fall 2014 applications on September 2. NACCHO staff have been providing guidance and technical assistance to the review teams as they score and comment on their assigned applications. NACCHO staff have also spent this month planning for the PPHR national review meeting, to take place October 15-16 in New Orleans. An in-person meeting for PPHR state leads is also being planned for October 16-17.
NACCHO also released Version 7.1 of the PPHR Criteria and Version 2.1 of the PPHR Re-Recognition Criteria, available at: http://www.naccho.org/topics/emergency/PPHR/Criteria.cfm. Related materials have also been updated based on the new criteria, including criteria comparison documents (comparing the new criteria to previous versions) to previous criteria versions, the crosswalk of the PPHR criteria and CDC public health preparedness capabilities, and various technical assistance documents.
