In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Congress appropriated emergency supplemental funding to support the urgent preparedness and response needs of hospitals, health systems, and health care workers on the front lines of this pandemic. As part of this emergency supplemental funding, ASPR has provided additional funding as part of the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) cooperative agreement. This funding should support health care coalitions (HCCs), emergency medical services (EMS) and other health care entities to prepare them to identify, isolate, assess, transport, and treat patients with COVID-19 or persons under investigation (PUIs) for COVID-19, and to prepare those entities for future special pathogen disease outbreaks. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response (CDPHE-OEPR) has been provided additional funding to the NERHCC to be dispersed based on proposed projects and community need. *Projects that do not meet this intent and the purchasing guidelines outlined below will not be considered for funding.
