CDC Announces Public Health Crisis Response Cooperative Agreement Opportunity

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced a cooperative agreement opportunity to establish a roster of public health departments that would be pre-identified and pre-approved for rapid funding by CDC for public health emergencies of such magnitude, complexity, or significance that it would have an overwhelming impact upon, and exceed resources available to, the jurisdiction. Funding tied to the recent announcement will be made available once CDC has determined a public health emergency exists or is considered imminent. The notice of opportunity is available here; more information is also available here.
