Additional Information

Eligibility: As the main worksite, tribal LHDs are the priority eligible organization to serve as a Strategist host. If an interested tribal LHD does not have the capacity to administer the project but can serve as the primary worksite, a partnering nonprofit hospital/hospital system may serve as the fiscal agent and/or administrative host organization for the benefit of both organizations. Applicants must designate a specific senior or mid-career employee with public health knowledge to actively and fully participate in the Road Map Strategist initiative.
