To support governmental public health emergency response to COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has activated CDC-RFA-TP18-1802 Cooperative Agreement for Emergency Response: Public Health Crisis Response. CDC has awarded nearly $730 million in funding under Components A and B of the cooperative agreement to the 65 eligible jurisdictions that are on the approved but unfunded (ABU) list for CDC-RFA-TP18-1802 to provide resources to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. This funding is intended for state, local, territorial, and tribal health departments to carry out surveillance, epidemiology, laboratory capacity, infection control, mitigation, communications, and other preparedness and response activities.
HOWEVER Note: FEMA is requiring a written statement from the Applicant for each project funded by FEMA stating that other Federal funds will not be accepted for that particular project. FEMA recommends Recipients flag health departments applying for PA funding and work with State Health Departments to ensure the health department has exhausted the CDC funding and there is no duplication of benefits.
