Activities to Support State, Tribal, Local and Territorial (STLT) Health Department Response to Public Health or Healthcare Crises

CDC will strengthen the U.S.

public health system?s response to public health or healthcare crises by providing specialized support to State, Tribal, Local and Territorial health departments (STLTs) when engaged in a response.

Because STLTs vary widely in capacity and expertise - as well
as in the demographics and disease burdens of the populations they serve - an emergency in any location is likely to reveal areas in which they need assistance to launch and sustain effective response activities.

The purpose of this NOFO is (1) to establish a pool of organizations capable of rapidly providing essential expertise to governmental public health entities involved in a response, and (2) to fund select awardees to provide that support, when required, based on CDC?s determination of need.

The role of the awardee will be to function as a rapid provider of information and/or resources, as well as a coordinator of the project management components involved.

Awardees will primarily support public health departments, but may be engaged to support CDC programs also involved in the response.

This NOFO is designed to collect responsive proposals from eligible applicants and retain them as ?approved but unfunded? (ABU) until a crisis occurs. The NOFO will only be funded upon occurrence of a particular public health or healthcare crisis. At that time, depending on the nature of the scenario, specific applicants and specific components of their applications will be selected for funding. These funding decisions will take into account various relevant factors such as geographic location, expectations of spread (e.g., with infectious disease-related emergencies), applicant?s capabilities, national priorities, impact of the emergency on an eligible jurisdiction, and target populations, etc. Method of awarding/releasing assistance: lump sum.
