PHAP Host Site Application Form - 2024


PHAP places early-career public health professionals in state, tribal, local, and territorial public health agencies, and nongovernmental organizations—such as community-based organizations, public health institutes and associations, and academic institutions—to gain broad experience in public health program operations and increase host site agency capacity.

While PHAP offers tremendous benefits to associates through training and support, the host site also receives numerous benefits, including—

  • CDC-funded associates who are well-rounded, energetic, flexible, career-minded individuals bringing valuable skills to host agencies
  • A unique partnership with CDC to develop the nation’s next generation of public health professionals
  • Online learning opportunities for host site supervisors and access to CDC resources and subject matter expertise. 
  • Resources to fill gaps in agencies affected by budget cuts and staffing shortages.
