We are hopeful that the 2022 Training Course in MCH Epidemiology can return to a full, in-person course this summer. CityMatCH, MCHB, and CDC are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, trends, and are taking in to account all current guidance and protocols. In the event the course must be moved to a virtual delivery format, accepted applicants will be notified of the change immediately. We encourage submitting an application regardless of current ability to travel.

The purpose of the NOFO is to strengthen the public health infrastructure and capacity of 1) Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) and 2) the tribes and Urban Indian Organizations (UIO) they support to meet national public health accreditation standards and deliver the 10 Essential Public Health Services. This work will support efforts to effectively identify and address underlying social determinants of health, reduce persistent health disparities, and improve the overall health and wellbeing of American Indian and Alaska Native populations.
