HHS administers two major grant programs that support State and local capacities, as well as capabilities to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies. Over the next 5 years, these programs will shift dramatically, from a focus on capacity building to improving targeted capabilities.
ASPR administers the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program, which, through States, enhances the ability of the health care system, including hospitals, to prepare for and respond to bioterrorism and other public health emergencies. Program priority areas over the next 5 years include improving bed and personnel surge capacity, decontamination capabilities, isolation capacity, and pharmaceutical supplies, as well as supporting training, education, drills, and exercises.
CDC administers the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Cooperative Agreement Program, which provides funds to States and localities for State and community-level preparedness. Over the next 5 years, HHS will place increased emphasis on achieving benchmarks and standards for preparedness by recipients of both funding streams as required by PAHPA.
