On June 4, 2020, HHS announced guidance on laboratory data reporting as required under section 18115 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (P.L. 116-136). The guidance specifies requirements for data submission from laboratories and from state and local public health departments using existing reporting channels. Consistent with the terms and conditions of grants and cooperative agreements awarding coronavirus supplemental funding, recipients must comply with this guidance, as applicable. For more information, see the HHS Frequently Asked Questions about laboratory data reporting.

Additionally, the directives below apply to all CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program enrolled providers and all awardees and recipients of HHS (which includes CDC) grant and cooperative agreement funds, including grants to states and U.S. territories that have been awarded to support, implement, and expand COVID-19 vaccination programs nationwide.

In 2019, CDC provided expanded authority for carryover to some awards, allowing recipients to spend unobligated funds in a following budget period for any approved cost that falls within the scope and objectives of a project.  For more information about expanded authority, please refer to the Expanded Authority for Carryover Fact Sheet. To determine if expanded authority for carryover has been granted for an award, refer to your NoA document for the special terms and conditions .
