As of March 18, 2022, OPHP is asking LPHAs to complete an initial budget for the CDC Workforce funding. After the initial budget is received and approved, we will begin to fund LPHAs.
About the Workforce Funding:
The CDC Supplemental Workforce Funding aims to establish, expand, train and sustain the state, tribal, local and territorial (STLT) public health workforce to support jurisdictional COVID-19 prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery initiatives. Public health agencies shall use available funding to recruit, hire, and train personnel to address projected jurisdictional COVID-19 response needs over the performance period, including hiring personnel (see Allowable Costs section in the Roadmap) to build capacity to address local public health priorities deriving from COVID-19.
