Funding and Grant Opportunities

The Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) provides leadership and funding through grants and cooperative agreements to states, territories, and eligible municipalities to improve the capacity of the health care system to plan for and respond to medical surge events. HPP supports regional collaboration on health care preparedness and response by encouraging the development and sustainment of health care coalitions, which are groups of health care and response organizations that collaborate together to plan for disasters and emergencies.

“Health care preparedness begins with hospitals and coalitions being able to perform the competencies described in the recent HPP guidance,” said Dr. Robert Kadlec, HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. “Part of my responsibility is to find ways to maximize the use of the available funds and to identify how to use them most effectively.”

HPP’s 2017–2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities and 2017–2022 Hospital Preparedness Program Performance Measures Implementation Guidance provide health care coalitions with resources and guidelines for strengthening their ability to prepare for and respond to emergencies, crises, and natural disasters. “At their core, health care coalitions are response entities,” said Dr. Kadlec. “The whole point of planning, training, and preparing together is to respond as a coalition.”
