+/-  Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) Grant
Funds from the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) will be used to maintain, refine, and to the extent achievable, enhance the capacities and capabilities of their healthcare systems, and for exercising and improving preparedness plans for all-hazards including pandemic influenza. In addition, building medical surge capability through associated planning, personnel, equipment, training and exercise capabilities at the State and local levels remains a high priority. Developing medical surge capability is a complicated process that includes many different aspects, referred to in this guidance as "sub-capabilities." The HPP will continue to support capabilities based-planning by setting priorities that must be met by the end of the grant cycle (June 30, 2012).
