phep: funding 4.0 is on the way

Forgive us for being quiet lately, we've been bit busy. Within weeks we will take 4.0 live, and it's more than just a pretty new face. Sure, it will be packed with much needed features, but the real power is under the hood. We invested much to the  technology that will power the bParati healthcare coalition network, which will allow us to stream our content, fully formatted, to healthcare coalition websites in real time. When we publish a new resource, you get it on your coalition website– delivering excellent value to your members.  Stay tuned.

By the end of the project period, PHEP awardees should build or maintain the necessary elements identified in the Public Health Preparedness Capabilities: National Standards for State and Local Planning to achieve substantial, measurable progress in each of the funded public health preparedness capabilities across the six domains.

To achieve this goal, the Strategies and Activities section of the logic model focuses on 1) areas for which improvement has been identified in drills, exercises, and incident responses across each of the public health preparedness capabilities and medical countermeasure (MCM) technical assistance action plans and 2) program requirements for the project period, both of which are described in more detail in the Strategies and Activities section.

PHEP awardee strategies, activities, and related outputs indicated in the logic model will lead to progress in the development and maintenance of established (CDC's expected level of effectiveness) state, local, and territorial public health emergency management and response programs during the project period. Ultimately, CDC expects awardees to achieve the following response and program outcomes:

  • Timely assessment and sharing of essential elements of information,
  • Earliest possible identification and investigation of an incident with public health impact,
  • Timely implementation of intervention and control measures,
  • Timely communication of situational awareness and risk information,
  • Continuity of emergency operations management throughout the surge of an emergency or incident,
  • Timely coordination and support of response activities with partners, and
  • Continuous learning and improvements are systematic.
Important!  Remember, the cooperative agreement is a contract between the CDC and the Awardee, not between the Awardee and the local health department . PHEP cooperative agreement requirements and recommendations only enforceable on the sub grantee – the local health department (LHD) – if they are specifically stated in the LHD's sub grant.

But, if the term "the LHD Must" is stated within the cooperative agreement, the Awardee Must include the requirement within the coalition's sub grant.

Important!  Remember, the cooperative agreement is a contract between ASPR and the Awardee, not between the Awardee and the healthcare coalition. These funding restrictions and conditions only apply to the sub grantee – the healthcare coalition – if they are specifically stated in the coalition's sub grant.
