LHJ Funding Opportunity

Award Announcement

This summer, the Washington State Department of Health’s Healthcare-Associated Infections / Antimicrobial Resistance (HAI & AR) program launched a request for applications for additional funding to support local health jurisdictions’ (LHJ) HAI & AR programs and COVID-19 prevention and response activities. There were three funding opportunities for HAI & AR and COVID-specific projects available through Strengthening HAIAR Program Capacity and Nursing Home & Long-term Care Facilities Strike Teams. The funding supports LHJs in their development and implementation of HAIAR programs, if not already established, or helps increase capacity to fund more community projects and collaborations in jurisdictions with existing HAI & AR programs.

We are happy to announce the following awards by funding source:
