States were notified of the funding opportunity announcement Wednesday, October 19, 2016. All ELC applicants can request funds. The distribution of funds will be determined based on factors such as Zika disease burden, current laboratory and mosquito surveillance and control capacity, the presence of the Zika virus vector (Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes), and local Zika virus transmission. CDC continues to work with states and territories to provide emergency resources for critical needs while the agency completes the necessary reviews and approvals of all applications.
The deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m. ET on Nov. 20. For more information on CDC's ELC Cooperative Agreement, visit the ELC webpage: http://www.cdc.gov/ncezid/dpei/epidemiology-laboratory-capacity.html.
