Flexibility for HPP Ebola Cooperative Agreement Recipients

Due to the significant workload related to the current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) response, ASPR is implementing the following flexibilities for HPP cooperative agreement recipients:

Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) Ebola Part A and Part B Cooperative Agreements

  1. Upon written request, HPP Ebola Part A and Part B funds may, on a limited, case-by-case basis, be used to support response efforts if the activities fall within those authorized by Title VI of Division G of the Consolidated and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 and section 311 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended, the HPP Ebola Preparedness and Response Activities FOA, and the terms and conditions of the HPP notice of award. The activities must support progress toward (2) improving health care system preparedness for Ebola and (2) developing a regional hospital network for Ebola patient care. Please see the Use of HPP Ebola Preparedness and Response Activities Funds for COVID-19 for more information.
  1. COVID-19 activities may meet the annual Ebola Part A or Ebola Part B annual exercise requirements, as applicable. To receive credit, recipients must respond to the annual Ebola performance measures.
  1. HPP Ebola Part A and Ebola Part B recipients may request a no-cost extension up to 12 months beyond the end of the project period; May 17, 2020 and June 14, 2020, respectively. Please submit the no cost extension request to the assigned ASPR grants management specialist and HPP field project officer (FPO). Please see the No Cost Extension (NCE) Request Instructions document for more information.
