    Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) is a cooperative agreement program that, through its support for health care coalitions (HCCs), prepares the health care delivery system to save lives during emergencies that exceed the day-to-day capacity of health care and emergency response systems. HPP is the primary source of federal funding for health care delivery system preparedness and response. HPP enables the formation of public-private partnerships among multiple types of health care, public health, and emergency management organizations, empowering health care entities across the nation to save lives during disasters and emergencies. ASPR requires HPP recipients to invest in HCCs, providing a foundation for health care readiness. An HCC is a network of individual public and private health care and response organizations in a defined geographic location that partner to conduct preparedness activities and collaborate to ensure that each member has what it needs to respond to disasters and emergencies. 


    HPP is a whole-of-community endeavor that connects health care entities at the local, state, regional, and national levels to plan for and respond to emergencies and disasters by:

    • Addressing community needs. HPP helps health care entities meet the needs of their communities in times of emergency.
    • Building connectivity. HPP integrates and coordinates recipient public health agencies, HCCs, and coalition members to ensure all people have equitable access to care.
    • Saving lives. HPP enables the health care delivery system to continue to provide care during 

    Over the past five years, you and your HCC(s) strengthened collective preparedness and response planning across jurisdictions. For fiscal year (FY) 2024-2028, we, as ASPR, are building on previous years' progress and prioritizing:

    • Outcomes. We designed this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to advance the outcomes of this cooperative agreement and to support you and your HCC(s) in performing core functions that support health care readiness. 
    • Coordination and connectivity. We understand the importance of coordination and connectivity between you and your HCC(s). We note any specific activities where you or your HCC(s) must take on complementary roles, but we expect that you will work together to develop, update, and carry out health care readiness activities. 
    • Flexibility. As much as possible, we provided high level guidance on what you and your HCC(s) must do as part of this cooperative agreement. How you and your HCC(s) carry out these activities may vary depending on the needs of your jurisdiction, HCC membership, and community.
