CDPH HAI Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) Honor Roll Upgrade Applications


The Honor Roll Upgrade Application is available for facilities that would like to apply for a higher designation after they have received their original designation.  
  • Facilities are eligible to submit an upgrade application within one year of their original designation. For example, if a facility applied at the March 1, 2023 deadline and received their designation in May 2023, they may apply for an upgrade at the September 1, 2023 deadline or the March 1, 2024 deadline.  
  • Because documentation requirements changed for the September 1, 2023 deadline, application documentation requirements for upgrade will be different based on when the initial application was completed.
