Regional Centers for Public Health Preparedness and Response

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to establish up to 10 centers (maximum one in each U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) region) for public health preparedness and response (PHPR). Our goal is to increase the use of evidence-based strategies and interventions (EBSIs) to improve PHPR in line with the needs of the communities involved.

This announcement has one required component (A or B depending on your HHS region) and three optional components (C, D, and E) for which you may apply. Funding for strategies within components C, D, and E are subject to availability of funds. Only those organizations funded for components A and B will be eligible to receive funds through optional components C, D, and E.
