The purpose of this supplement is to provide State Health Departments with resources to maintain previous projections in sample size, enhance and expand the utility of BRFSS, and support ongoing state-based public health surveillance infrastructure.
Resources are needed specifically to collect
BRFSS data to assess the prevalence of Influenza Like Illness (ILI) at state and local levels to support Pandemic Influenza response and preparedness activities as well as to support optional modules of public health significance at the state level (Components IA, IB, and IC).
Financial support will be provided for activities related to data collection for the evaluation of interventions and assessment of the effectiveness of activities funded with Affordable Care Act through the Communities Putting Prevention to Work (ACA CPPW) (Component II).
Those states eligible to apply for Component II will be notified individually.
The amount of funding for individual states will be determined through a competitive evaluation.
