Emergency Preparedness

The Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) cooperative agreement provides assistance to public health departments across the nation to build and strengthen their abilities to effectively respond to a range of public health threats, including infectious diseases, natural disasters, and biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological events. Preparedness activities funded by the PHEP cooperative agreement specifically target the development of emergency-ready public health departments that are flexible and adaptable.
