HHS ASPR Releases Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): Partnership for Disaster Health Response Cooperative Agreement


The Health & Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is pleased to announce the release of a new funding opportunity announcement (FOA), the Partnership for Disaster Health Response Cooperative Agreement. Under this FOA, ASPR invites applicants to develop demonstration projects that address healthcare preparedness challenges, establish best practices for improving disaster readiness across the healthcare delivery system, and show the potential effectiveness and viability of a Regional Disaster Health Response System.


This FOA is among the first steps in ASPR’s broader efforts to develop a Regional Disaster Health Response System that leverages and enhances existing programs – such as the Hospital Preparedness Program and the National Disaster Medical System – to create a more coherent, comprehensive, and capable healthcare system integrated into daily care delivery.


For details on this opportunity, please see the Partnership for Disaster Health Response Cooperative Agreement Funding Opportunity Announcement.
