    • Description:
      In October 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released CDC-RFA-TP18-1802: Cooperative Agreement for Emergency Response: Public Health Crisis Response notice of funding opportunity (NOFO). Eligible applicants included the 50 states; eight U.S. territories and freely associated states; six localities: Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles County, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.; and federally recognized tribal governments that met the NOFO requirements and serve, through their own public health infrastructures, at least 50,000 people. This NOFO seeks to enhance the nation’s ability to rapidly mobilize, surge, and respond to public health emergencies identified by CDC. The NOFO establishes a roster of public health departments that are be pre-identified and pre-approved for rapid funding by CDC for public health emergencies of such magnitude, complexity, or significance that they would have an overwhelming impact upon, and exceed resources available to, the jurisdictions.

      On March 23, 2018, Congress approved and the President signed into law the FY 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act, which appropriated an increase in funding to CDC to “advance the understanding of the opioid overdose epidemic and scale up prevention activities across all 50 States and Washington, D.C.” On June 22, 2018, CDC activated its public health crisis response funding mechanism to award a portion of this increase in appropriations. For this funding, the Office of Management and Budget determined that the eligible applicants were the 50 states, Washington D.C., and eight U.S. territories and freely associated states and that the remaining localities would not be eligible to apply. Funding will remain available until August 31, 2019.

      CDC released June 20, 2018, the 2018 Opioid Overdose Crisis Cooperative Agreement Supplemental Guidance. The guidance included information related to eligibility, use of funds, permissible activities, reimbursement, and funding timeframes.

      This document provides answers to frequently asked questions to help jurisdictions and others interested in the 2018 Opioid Overdose Crisis Cooperative Agreement funding to understand the intent of the cooperative agreement and how best to effectively employ it to provide funds in response to the opioid overdose national crisis.
