Project Funding

The Alliance does not maintain caches of equipment, supplies, or pharmaceuticals, but rather the annual budget includes funding for regional projects intended to address identified gaps or deficiencies in the healthcare delivery system.

Using a competitive application process, Alliance members may request funding for equipment and training projects that will fill gaps identified in the regional HVA and will increase the capabilities of the regional healthcare system.

  • Annual funding for projects is available beginning in July.
  • All projects are on a reimbursement basis.
  • Requesting agency must be a current member and located in one of the eighteen member counties of the Alliance:
    • Coalition for Health and Medical Preparedness (CHAMP) – Marion
    • Northeast Florida Healthcare Coalition (NEFLHCC) – Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, and St. Johns
    • North Central Healthcare Coalition (NCFHCC) – Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Putnam, Suwannee, and Union
  • Project must demonstrate relevance to the Coalition Alliance’s mission: Three coalitions working together to increase healthcare resiliency in North Florida.
  • Projects must address an identified healthcare delivery deficiency, gap or resource shortage.
  • Projects must align with and support one of the following ASPR’s Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities:
    1. Foundation for Health Care and Medical Readiness,
    2. Health Care and Medical Response Coordination,
    3. Continuity of Health Care Service Delivery, or
    4. Medical Surge.
  • Projects that align with the specialty surge areas for pediatrics, burns, infectious diseases, radiation and chemical trauma events may receive higher priority.
  • Projects must benefit the region.
  • Projects will not be considered if they supplant normal business expenses and/or core mission requirements of the applicant’s agency or organization.
  • Projects will not be considered if they violate any of the ASPR funding restrictions.
  • Decisions made on funding requests are at the sole discretion of the Region 3 Healthcare Coalition Alliance’s Board of Directors. The Alliance reserves the right to offer partial funding for a request.
  • Florida Department of Health Bureau of Preparedness will review and approve all project awards prior to notification of award. County Health Departments are not eligible to be a requesting agency.
  • The Healthcare Coalition’s Fiscal Year begins July 1, and ends June 30.
  • While the application process may begin earlier, project award decisions may not be finalized until July of each year.
