Overview

The American Rescue Plan provides one-time funding for a 2-year period of performance to National Training and Technical Assistance Partners (NTTAPs). Funding will be used to provide national training and technical assistance to health centers to respond to and mitigate the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and enhance health care services and infrastructure.

HRSA awarded approximately $5.5 million to current NTTAPs. Each NTTAP’s award amount is equivalent to 25 percent of its FY 2020 NTTAP cooperative agreement (U30) award. The American Rescue Plan award notifications include a cooperative agreement award number beginning with U3F that is unique to this funding and separate from the U30 award.
