The grant will provide up to $15,000 to six Tribes and/or Tribal health organizations. Each awarded entity must use a community-tailored approach to create and facilitate peer learning communities to scale up and strengthen local preparedness for infectious disease outbreaks. This grant aims to assist with professional development and capacity building of the existing public health workforce to respond to emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. In addition to increasing capacity, awardees may use funds to implement training activities that improve overall community health and healthcare professionals’ ability to prevent and control outbreaks.
