Public Health Corps is now accepting applications for local organizations delivering public health servics to be host sites for Public Health Project Coordinators! Public Health Corps harnesses the power of AmeriCorps to help meet the emerging public health needs and grow the public health workforce. Each host site will be matched with at least one (1) full-time Public Health Corps member (40 hours/week for 11 months per member) and will benefit from activities that support community engagement, data collection, project coordination, and sustained COVID-19 response and recovery. In addition to enhancing local capacity, Public Health Corps is also working to build a pathway for developing future public health workers. Host sites must be public or non-profit organizations, have a focus in public health initiatives that support standard public health operations or those related to acute need, and commit to hosting the member(s) in a full-time capacity (40 hours/week) beginning in August, October, or January.
