Who is eligible?

CDC does not make awards to individuals. The funding opportunity solicits competition among those organizations that have the capability to meet the program goals. CDC offers programs to universities, states and local governments, professional health organizations, tribal organizations, community and faith-based organizations.

Can my organization still apply if I did not submit an LOI? Is the LOI requested or required?

Your organization may still apply if the LOI was simply requested. If, however, the LOI is required and one is not submitted, your organization will not be considered under the application process.

Does the Principal Investigator (PI) for a project have to be American to be eligible to apply for a grant?

The PI must meet the criteria set forth by the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) – unless nationality is specifically cited as a qualifying criteria, there is no pre-requisite to be American, particularly in the case of internationally focused announcements.
