Partnership for Disaster Health Response Cooperative Agreement Funding Opportunity Announcement

Full Application Deadline: August 15, 2018

ASPR is working to develop a regional disaster health response system (RDHRS) 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. The RDHRS will be a tiered system that emphasizes the use of local healthcare coalitions and trauma centers that integrate their medical response capabilities with federal facilities and local emergency medical services. This system will expand this public-private partnerships, adding trauma centers, burn centers, pediatric hospitals, public health labs, outpatient services, and federal facilities like Veterans Affairs clinics to better meet the health care needs of the public in a disaster.

ASPR has released a new funding opportunity announcement (FOA) inviting 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 RDHRS.
