    The funds available under the HPP/PHEP program are for the continued purpose of strengthening and enhancing the capabilities of state, local, and territorial public health and health care systems to respond effectively (mitigate the loss of life and reduce the threats to the communitys health and safety) to evolving threats and other emergencies within the United States and territories and freely associated states.

    This program supports efforts to strengthen and enhance the readiness of the public health and the health care delivery system to save lives during emergencies that exceed the day-to-day capacity and capability of the public health and medical emergency response systems. Applicants shall focus on activities that advance progress toward meeting the goals of the 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities. Applicants shall also document progress in establishing or maintaining ready health care systems through strong HCCs and to ensure that PHEP awardees continue to advance development of effective public health emergency management and response programs as outlined in the Public Health Preparedness Capabilities: National Standards for State and Local Planning.

    Awardees must develop strategies and activities based on the HPP-PHEP Logic Model and use findings from their jurisdictional risk assessments, capability self-assessments, National Health Security Preparedness Index, and incident after-action reports to inform their strategic priorities and preparedness investments.

    Awardees must also increase or maintain their levels of effectiveness across six key preparedness domains: (1) Community resilience, (2) incident management, (3) information management, (4) countermeasures and mitigation, (5) surge management, and (6) biosurveillance. These domains build on the efforts to strengthen the public health and health care capabilities from the previous project period. Addressing these domains allows awardees and local and tribal public health and health care subawardees to focus efforts on strengthening their preparedness capabilities and preventing or reducing morbidity and mortality from public health incidents whose scale, rapid onset, or unpredictability stresses the public health and health care systems.
