The Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program (PHEP) is comprised of a base program, the Cities Readiness Initiative program and the Chemical Laboratory program. Funding for the programs comes from the PHEP Cooperative Agreement and the primary guidance is the Public Health Preparedness Capabilities: National Standards for State and Local Planning. The programs hit the ground through State and local health departments, which work in concert with healthcare coalitions to fulfill the Emergency Support Function #8 Mission.
