COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS

Cooperative Agreements are administered by the Office of Minority Health (OMH). Cooperative agreements support research, demonstration and evaluations, test new and innovative models, increase knowledge and understanding of health risk factors, and develop mechanisms that support better information dissemination, education, prevention, and service delivered to individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

There are two types of cooperative agreements administered in OMH, standard and umbrella. The standard cooperative agreement has a single scope of work similar to a grant. The umbrella cooperative agreement provides a broad programmatic framework in which specific projects can be supported by various government agencies during the project period.
