Funding and Guidance for State and Local Health Departments

CDC plays a pivotal role in ensuring that state and local public health systems are prepared for public health emergencies because of its unique abilities to respond to infectious, occupational, or environmental incidents that affect the public's health. CDC's Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response funds preparedness activities to state and local public health systems through the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) cooperative agreement and other funding. Through these resources, CDC helps public health departments improve their ability to respond to a range of public health incidents and build better prepared communities.
