Agency: CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION, HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, DEPARTMENT OF
Assistance Type: COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS
Popular Name: CDC Partner Crisis Response NOFO
CFDA Number
93.391

Objectives: 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.
