NO LONGER SEEKING COHORT 1 APPLICATIONS – COHORT 2 FORTHCOMING
The CDC Foundation will release a Workforce Acceleration Initiative RFA for Cohort 2 the first week of June 2024.

The goal of WAI is to strengthen public health agencies’ (PHA) capacity to deliver information system improvements that are of top priority to each PHA by adding technology and data experts to their teams. The WAI’s support of diverse PHAs in improving their information systems is anticipated to also accelerate progress toward CDC’s Public Health Data Strategy (PHDS) goals. This initiative aims to increase the ability of PHAs serving state, tribal, local or territorial jurisdictions to leverage modern technology and interoperable data for public health action.
