Uses and Use Restrictions

Part A - Health Care System Preparedness for Ebola Through Part A, HHS will provide funding to all 62 Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) awardees to support state- or jurisdiction-designated Ebola treatment centers, assessment hospitals, and health care coalitions for overall health care system preparedness.

Jurisdictions may use a portion of the funding to: compensate health care facilities for Ebola preparedness activities undertaken since July 2014, build additional capabilities to ensure the nation?s health care system and health care workers are ready to safely and successfully identify, isolate, assess, transport, and treat patients under investigation with Ebola or confirmed to have Ebola, and be well prepared for a future Ebola-like event. Applicants should review the individual funding opportunity announcement document for specific information about the use of funds for this program.

Part B - Development of a Regional Network for Ebola Patient Care HHS will award funding through Part B of the FOA to up to 10 Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) awardees (although the decision has been made for Region 4 and Region 7 facilities) to develop a regional network for Ebola patient care, including the establishment of approximately ten regional Ebola and other special pathogen treatment centers with significantly enhanced Ebola and other infectious disease capabilities that will accept a confirmed Ebola patient from their region, across the U.S., or medically evacuated from West Africa, as necessary. All HPP jurisdictions are eligible to apply for Part B funding.

HPP will award a maximum of 10 awards through Part B (two sole source awards for [1] the Georgia Department of Public Health to support the Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, GA to serve as the Region 4 regional Ebola and other special pathogen treatment center and [2] the Nebraska State Department of Health and Human Services to support the Nebraska Medicine - Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE to serve as the Region 7 regional Ebola and other special pathogen treatment center) and up to eight additional competitive awards for the remaining HHS regions.
