On August 1, CDC reopened the 2022 Public Health Crisis Response notice of funding opportunity (NOFO), TP22-2201, on Grants.gov. The NOFO will remain open through October 10, 2022, to allow for applications from local health departments or tribes that meet eligibility requirements due to population changes. Jurisdictions that were eligible when the NOFO first opened in January 2022 and did not apply may also submit applications at this time. CDC encourages all applicants that meet the NOFO requirements to apply so they may be eligible to receive rapid funding in the event a public health emergency occurs and funding is made available through this NOFO.
In April 2022, CDC issued approved but unfunded (ABU) notices to 88 eligible jurisdictions who applied for the Public Health Crisis Response Cooperative Agreement. The 88 jurisdictions, including all 62 PHEP recipients, that applied and were granted ABU status will remain on the ABU roster until January 31, 2027. Those 88 jurisdictions need not apply again at this time. Click here for the current ABU roster, which includes the 50 states, eight territories and freely associated states, and 30 localities. No tribal organizations submitted applications.
Potential applicants should note that Grants.gov will be unavailable from 12:01 a.m. EDT on Friday, September 23, to 11:59 p.m. EDT on Thursday, September 29, to migrate the system to a new hosting environment. CDC encourages applicants to submit their applications prior to the transition, if possible.
Also, click here for the list of entities that are now eligible to apply for funding. This list includes previously eligible entities that did not apply when the NOFO was first released earlier this year, as well as newly eligible entities based on the 2021 U.S. Census data. CDC encourages PHEP directors to notify eligible entities in their states regarding this funding opportunity.
CDC plans to reopen the funding announcement annually during the NOFO’s five-year performance period to ensure CDC maintains a current roster of eligible jurisdictions for public health emergency response funding.
