    The purpose of this notice is to announce the availability of emergency supplemental funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-19 emergency response for the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribal nations with populations over 40,000 and AI/AN regional tribally designated organizations that were previously awarded funding under Strategy 1 of CDC-RFA-OT18-1803: Tribal Public Health Capacity-Building and Quality Improvement Umbrella Cooperative Agreement. Funding associated with this announcement is awarded under Strategy 2 of CDC-RFA-OT18-1803.

    Funding Strategy 2 is subject to the availability of appropriated funds and agency priorities.

There are two COVID-19 Emergency Response Project Plans project plans attached to this announcement:
