The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of funds to support immunization program managers through CDC-RFA-IP17-1703, National Organization to Strengthen and Support a Network of Immunization Program Managers.
This five year project, with approximately $400,000
available for each 12-month budget period, aids immunization program managers with achieving the goals of CDC-RFA-IP13-1301, Immunization and Vaccines for Children Program, and long-term goals of high immunization coverage rates and low incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases.
There are four strategies associated with this funding that focus on training and resource development around select topics, education about and dissemination of practices associated with program improvement, mentoring and leadership development activities, and facilitating communication and information sharing among key partners.
As a result of this award, it is expected that immunization program managers will have increases in knowledge, capacity, and access to tools/resources to improve program performance, and strengthened ability to manage a federally funded immunization program.
