Funding Opportunity

Apply for MISSION ZERO Trauma Grant by August 31

August 2, 2022

The US Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is accepting applications for the Military Civilian Partnership for the Trauma Readiness Grant (MISSION ZERO) program via the grants.gov website. Eligible entities must apply by Wednesday, August 31.

The goal of the grant is to support and build military-civilian partnerships that will improve the nation's response to public health and medical emergencies while exposing combat casualty care providers to severely injured trauma patients when not deployed. The grant will defray the administrative costs that civilian trauma centers incur and may be used to train and integrate military trauma care providers into these facilities.

Note: An additional requirement is that an applying trauma center must have in place an existing agreement with the Secretary of Defense to enable military teams/providers to work at their facility.”

The MISSION ZERO grant program was funded at $2 million for the first time in 2021, thanks in part to the direct advocacy efforts of the ACS, its Committee on Trauma (COT), and the continued support of and collaboration with the Military Health System Strategic Partnership ACS.

Details about the grant and eligibility can be found in the Funding Opportunity Announcement. Access it by navigating to the “Related Documents” tab on the grant web page.

ASPR will hold a conference call for potential grant applicants to answer questions regarding the grant or the application process:
