CDC solicitations are usually limited to one application per institution, however I do not find that language in this NOFO.  If you do find language in this NOFO that limits the number of applications per institution or organization, please refer to this link on the UIowa Limited Submissions process

This announcement is only for non-research activities supported by CDC.
This Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO) is to announce the availability of funding for a three-year cooperative agreement help CDC reach a larger proportion of clinical laboratory professionals and bridge, train, and sustain the laboratory community to support rapid, large-scale responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health emergencies.
This NOFO aims to support the following three categories of strategies to help build the laboratory-preparedness competency of clinical laboratory professionals:
Bridge - strengthen essential links between clinical and public health laboratory training professionals and CDC;
Train - develop and evaluate education and training resources for clinical laboratory professionals to be ready, respond, and lead others; and
Sustain - expand the reach of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC's) training and workforce development resources among the clinical laboratory community, including those who perform point-of-care testing, and promote awareness of the laboratory profession to broader audiences.
