HHS Announces Disaster Response Funding Opportunity

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) today announced a funding opportunity for demonstration projects that improve disaster readiness and response.

The Partnership for Disaster Health Response Cooperative Agreement is the first of ASPR’s efforts to create a Regional Disaster Health Response System that expands existing programs, such as the Hospital Preparedness Program and National Disaster Medical System, to integrate disaster readiness into everyday care.

ASPR offers $6 million for two partnerships conducting projects that tackle health care preparedness challenges, create best practices for improving disaster readiness, and demonstrate the effectiveness of a Regional Disaster Health Response System.

Eligible applicants are partnerships of:

  • one or more hospitals, one of which must be a designated trauma center;
  • one or more local health care facilities; and
  • a combination of one or more political subdivisions and/or states.

Applications are due Aug. 15. Contact support@grants.gov or 1.800.518.4726 with technical questions.
