Description:The purpose of this funding opportunity is to continue to build the capabilities of MRC units across the Nation to respond to and meet their communities’ public health and medical needs in emergencies. It is not sufficient to just build capabilities; those capabilities should also be called upon during times of need, so the awardees should also identify barriers to the use of MRC units and volunteers during emergencies and plan to address those barriers. This multi-year cooperative agreement is also intended to enable awardees and sub-awardees, especially the MRC units, to develop a sustainability plan to continue to maintain and even build response capabilities after the end of the period of performance. This funding opportunity is divided into two projects. Under Project A, one award will be made to a single entity (eligibility is described below) which will provide support to MRC units across the country. Under Project B, multiple awards will be made to states/territories to support state-/territory-wide MRC programming for the MRC units within that state/territory. This state-/territory-wide programming can include incorporating the local and tribal MRC units within their jurisdiction into state-wide preparedness planning and response.
