Excerpts from the RFA: 

Purpose

The purpose of this RFA is to provide guidance for current contractors to submit continuation applications to the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to renew service provisions as described by and within the project period established by the RFP 58821002. Services covered by this application include strengthening and enhancing the acute care medical surge capacity through the maintenance and growth of strong healthcare coalitions.

This project supports health equity by ensuring that systems are developed to protect population safety, particularly among the most vulnerable. Systems should address the opportunities and challenges facing all people in the community, including older adults, young children, those without access to transportation, and those living in rural areas. Systems to coordinate and advance emergency preparedness in the identified service area must work to ensure equitable outcomes by creating organizational infrastructure that makes the healthy and safe choice easy and possible for all members of the community.
