State efforts toward health care outcomes and health care-related emergency preparedness have received $6 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Hawaii's Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) will receive $1,900,815, and Hawaii's part of the Public Health Emergency Preparedness cooperative agreement (PHEP) will receive $4,918,135.

HPP funding supports preparedness for health care systems, health care coalitions and health care organizations; while PHEP funding supports the preparedness of state, local, and territorial public health systems.

Overall the federal department is granting $971 million to each state, eight U.S. territories and four of the nation's largest metropolitan areas.
