HRSA's Award Process for Zika Response and Preparedness Funds

The Zika Response and Preparedness Appropriations Act, 2016 (P.L. 114-223, Division B, September 29, 2016), provided to HRSA $66 million in funding to remain available until September 30, 2017. The funding was to be directed at efforts in Puerto Rico and other territories to (1) expand the delivery of primary health care services; (2) support public health departments and entities, with the goal of ensuring access to recommended services for pregnant women, infants, and children; and (3) make loan repayment awards to National Health Service Corps members providing primary health services. We will determine whether HRSA awarded these funds during fiscal year 2017 in compliance with Federal regulations and HHS grant policies.
