The Affordable Care Act recently created The Prevention and Public Health Fund. According to Healthcare.gov, the goal of this bill is “to assist state and community efforts to prevent illness and promote health, so that all Americans can lead longer, more productive lives.” A Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Capacity Building Assistance to Strengthen Public Health Immunization Infrastructure and Performance” has been released through the Prevention and Public Health Fund. This FOA has proven both exciting and complex for state immunization programs across the country.
This grant addresses six specific areas within current immunization programs. STC, the nation’s premier public health information exchange firm, has been working closely with its current state IIS clients to help navigate through this opportunity to maximize the potential benefit to each client’s respective system.

Outlined below are the six program areas and the corresponding STC solutions that will augment each grant request:
