Request for Proposals: Planning for Program Evaluations at the Intersection of ACEs, Substance Use, and Overdose
The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is seeking a consultant(s) to conduct activities that will assist in better understanding the current landscape, including barriers and facilitators, of evaluation for programming that simultaneously and intentionally prevents adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), substance use, and overdose. This work will culminate in guidance for the future development of program evaluations at this intersection. For this project, the consultant(s) will:
- Facilitate focus groups and/or key informant interviews with programs who are currently working at the intersection of ACEs, substance use, and overdose to better understand their challenges and facilitators related to evaluating current programs that are addressing the intersection;
- Conduct a review of existing evaluation data for programs addressing the intersection; and
- Develop a report that summarizes the key findings and recommendations that will inform next steps for the evaluation of programs that intentionally and simultaneously address ACEs, substance use, and overdose prevention.
