State or Federal?
State, local, tribal, and territorial public health systems must continue to sustain emergency preparedness and response capability and demonstrate operational readiness to respond to public health threats and emergencies. This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) supports strengthening the capability of public health systems to effectively prepare for and respond to public health threats and emergencies. This announcement provides expectations and priorities for funded recipients to enhance their readiness to save lives during emergency incidents that exceed the day-to-day capacity and capability of public health response agencies. It serves as a roadmap to ensure that PHEP recipients develop strategies and activities that will increase their ability to be operationally ready to execute plans, respond to, and recover from public health threats and emergencies. PHEP funding will ensure PHEP recipients continue to develop and sustain effective public health emergency management and response capability according to standards described in the Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Capabilities:
National Standards for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Public Health. These standards provide a framework to ensure that PHEP recipients, based on the PHEP logic model, apply findings from their jurisdictional risk assessments, capability self-assessments, and after-action reports to inform their strategic priorities and direct jurisdictional preparedness investments.
