Thirty-three awardees in states and jurisdictions across the country have just received a total of $50 million under the
MRC State, Territory and Tribal Nations, Representative Organizations for Next Generation (MRC-STTRONG) grant
program. Funding for the first-ever MRC-STTRONG is from the American Rescue Plan.
States and jurisdictions will use these funds to strengthen the MRC network – focusing on emergency preparedness, response, and health equity needs.
