Managing Your Enhanced Prevention and Control Award

Requirements for the use of these funds are listed in Part 1 of the FY 2023–​2024 Tuberculosis Control Local Assistance Funds Standards and Procedures Manual, available at Resources for Local Health Departments. Reimbursement of your expenditures is contingent upon compliance with these standards and procedures.
Enhanced Prevention and Control funds are meant to enhance the capabilities of local health jurisdictions by increasing the ability to conduct additional TB prevention and control activities and cannot replace existing funding or support ongoing activities.

Funds can be used for travel and TB-related trainings, program supplies, subcontracts, equipment, and food, shelter, incentives and enablers (FSIE). Funds may also support new personnel activities. These Enhanced Prevention and Control Federal funds cannot be used for medication.

CDPH TBCB Enhanced Prevention and Control funds may not be used to supplant existing federal, state, or local health department funds. The use of TB local assistance funds is intended to enhance local health jurisdiction capacity in addressing TB control needs, not to displace funds that have been locally appropriated for the same purposes.

 If local health jurisdictions received federal, state, or local funding for TB control activities, electing to save federal, state, or local funding by substituting CDPH TBCB local assistance augmentation funds for those TB control activities is considered supplanting and is not allowed by the federal government.​

For more information on allowable expenditures, please refer to page 10 of the FY 2023–2024 Tuberculosis Control Local Assistance Fund Standards and Procedures Manual.
