The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of fiscal year (FY) 2001 funds for a cooperative agreement for the development of state-level surveillance systems, enhancement of epidemiologic practice, and the development of epidemiologic training programs for state health agencies.
Assistance will be provided only to the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). No other applications are solicited. Because of the professional appointments and technical expertise with tribal, state, territorial and local health agencies, through its membership, CSTE is uniquely capable of applying epidemiologic principles to disease, environmental, and injury problems at the national, state, and local levels, and when states are directly affected. No other organization has the scientific and technical expertise to carry out this project.
Approximately $3,000,000 is available in FY 2001 to fund this award. Funds will be allocated to individually described and budgeted projects or activities which will comprise the overall cooperative agreement. Individual projects are expected to range from $100,000 to $625,000. It is expected that the award will be made on or about September 30, 2001, and will be made for a 12 month budget period within a project period of up to five years.
