ELC Recipients and Project Officer Information
ELC recipients representing 64 jurisdictions serve as the foundation for our national public health infrastructure and are integral to the nation’s ability to tackle infectious disease threats. State, local, and territorial public health agencies each have unique needs and priorities because of the diverse infectious disease challenges they face, their organizational capacity, geography, and populations. Often, there are unanticipated events that may require the diversion of resources to a specific emerging or re-emerging disease.
To better meet essential needs and reduce delays in responsiveness, ELC resources are allocated to address expected and unanticipated infectious disease threats. Another essential resource, ELC Project Officers, are assigned for each of ELC’s jurisdictions. ELC Project Officers:
- Provide technical assistance and advice to maximize each jurisdiction’s use of their cooperative agreement.
- Strategize on how to mitigate recipient-specific challenges to ensure program goals and objectives are met in a resource-limited environment.
- Serve as Program Advisors responsible for overseeing the activities in ELC’s Cross-cutting Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity Program.
