  • Cooperative Agreement True
  • Guidance Availablility Yes
  • Purpose The Division of Child, Adolescent, and Family Health (DCAFH) and the Division of Healthy Start and Perinatal Services (DHSPS), both parts of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are accepting applications for the National Fetal, Infant, and Child Death Review Center (FICDRC or Center).  Please read the entire FOA carefully before completing the application. The ultimate goal of fetal, infant and child death reviews is to prevent deaths of children through the use of information gained from systematic reviews that identify factors at the individual, environmental, clinical or systems levels that can be mitigated. Ideally by having this comprehensive review, factors associated with preventable deaths can be addressed.  CDR and FIMR programs provide valuable information regarding fetal, infant and child deaths and provide insight into gaps in services, systems and modifiable risk factors not obtained from administrative surveillance systems.  Information from these reviews can be used at the local, state and Federal levels to focus planning and policy development, quality improvement and health systems development, and to enhance efforts to develop and maintain risk reduction and prevention programs.   This initiative will provide funds for a FICDRC to improve and strengthen state and local capacity to perform complete and accurate fetal and child death reviews including an estimated 1,200 CDR and 159 FIMR programs.  Specifically, the Center will support the use of standardized data collection protocols and data elements to design prevention-oriented recommendations, and translate those recommendations into local, state and national program and policy development and quality improvement efforts. Through the delivery of data, training and technical support, the Center will assist State and community programs in understanding how CDR and FIMR can be used to address issues related to adverse maternal, infant, child, and adolescent outcomes; monitor progress toward improving maternal and child health systems; improve the quality and effectiveness of the CDR and FIMR processes; increase the availability and use of data to measure performance and inform prevention efforts; and disseminate the results nationally.

  • Purpose This announcement solicits new and competing continuation applications for fiscal year (FY) 2015 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part C Early Intervention Services (EIS).  Funds will support outpatient HIV primary care services targeted to low-income, vulnerable, medically underserved people living with HIV/AIDS including women, infants, children and youth. The purpose of the RWHAP Part C EIS Program is to provide HIV primary care in the outpatient setting.  Applicants must propose to provide a comprehensive continuum of outpatient HIV primary care services in the designated service area including: 1) targeted HIV counseling, testing, and referral; 2) medical evaluation and clinical care; 3) other primary care services; and 4) referrals to other health services.  Primary care for persons with HIV disease should start as early in the course of the infection as possible.  However, entry into a RWHAP Part C EIS program may take place at any point in the spectrum of the disease or the patient’s lifespan. This competition is open to existing and new organizations proposing to provide RWHAP Part C funded services in the service areas described in Appendix B.  Applicants must define their proposed service area, which may be a portion of or the entire published service area.  Applicants proposing to serve less than all of the service area as listed in Appendix B must demonstrate the availability of comprehensive care and services to the entire service area through partners or other RWHAP providers.  Applicants that have overlapping geographic service areas must propose to provide additional services, or target specific vulnerable populations, and/or provide services that enhance the existing services in the area.  New organizations must demonstrate that they will serve the existing patients and populations, and provide at least the same scope of services of the current grantee.  As established in section 2651 of the PHS Act, and according to the terms and conditions of these awards, a RWHAP Part C program grantee must expend grant funds to provide HIV primary medical care in a proposed service area.  These services must be reflected in the budget.  Staff positions such as nurses, medical assistants and dental hygienists can be included in the budget when the position proportionately complements HIV primary medical care providers, such as physicians, dentists, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners for the RWHAP Part C program.  Accordingly, a RWHAP Part C budget must reflect a medical model of care in which providers can assess, treat and refer, as applicable.  Providers must be authorized, via credentialing and licensure, to prescribe medications, order medically indicated tests/exams, interpret symptoms, treat, and meet Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) HIV/AIDS medical practice guidelines.  Applicants are expected to focus RWHAP Part C supported services on those populations of persons living with HIV (PLWH) who are the hardest to reach, have the greatest unmet need, and/or the greatest gaps in HIV primary care services as documented by local epidemiologic and needs assessment data.  These populations include (but are not limited to) minorities, youth, women, pregnant women, post-incarcerated persons, and homeless persons. Applicants will be expected to have the financial capabilities to execute the fiduciary responsibilities that come with acceptance of a federal award.  Applicants must demonstrate that they are fiscally able to perform the duties and services outlined in this grant. RWHAP Part C programs should comply with federally-approved guidelines for HIV Prevention and Treatment (see http://www.aidsinfo.nih.gov/ as a reliable source for current guidelines).  More information can also be found at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/onap/.  The HHS, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) are committed to meeting the national goals and principles described below.  As applicants complete their RWHAP Part C proposal, they should consider how their program supports and helps to implement these goals and principles.

  • Cooperative Agreement True
  • Guidance Availablility Yes
  • Purpose This announcement solicits applications for the Rural Health Value Program.  The purpose of the Rural Health Value Program is to inform rural health care providers , and stakeholders such as HHS, Congress, states, and for-profit and nonprofit entities that set policies impacting rural health care providers, about the impacts of changes in the health care delivery system, and to provide technical assistance to rural providers in identifying potential new approaches to health care delivery in their communities. The health care delivery system is undergoing dramatic change, with an emphasis on finding new approaches and organizational frameworks to improve health outcomes, control costs, and improve population health.  Financial incentives are moving from volume-based services to value-based services, with a focus on measuring and accounting for quality of care in all settings and improving transitions of care as patients move between care settings.  New approaches to organizing care delivery are occurring quickly; however, most early adopters have been large, urban-based integrated delivery systems.  Early demonstrations and initiatives supported by private foundations or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) focused largely on providers paid under traditional administered pricing systems and for whom quality indicators are well established.  Because rural health care providers are often paid outside of the traditional prospective payment systems and fee schedules, there is less known about how new and emerging models might function in rural communities.  As a result, rural health care providers and other stakeholders need to better understand the implications of these models, particularly for low-volume rural providers and those that receive special payment designations.  Rural providers need access to information and technical assistance to effectively take part in new and emerging demonstrations and initiatives. Under its statutory authority, the FORHP funds community health organizations to test innovative approaches to improving the delivery of care in their communities.  Projects focus on a wide range of activities, including direct health care delivery, formation of networks to gain economies of scale and shared knowledge, implementation of quality of improvement strategies, and expansion of health care service delivery via telehealth.  Evaluation of these awards documents outcomes and leads to the development of evidence-based practices that may be replicated in other communities.  These best practices are shared with the broader rural health community primarily via the Rural Community Health Gateway.  ORHP also funds technical assistance providers to work with grantees to implement best practices in their projects.  There are numerous opportunities to learn from and highlight the innovations of these grantees, and to share information with the technical assistance providers who support them. Specifically, the Rural Health Value Program awardee will: 1)      Review the work performed under the current Rural Health System Analysis and Technical Assistance (RHSATA) Cooperative Agreement program and identify ways to build on that work; 2)      Analyze recent national, regional, State and local demonstrations and initiatives for lessons learned that are relevant to rural health care providers, including barriers and policy challenges; translate findings for rural health care providers so that they might meaningfully participate; and disseminate the findings broadly to policy makers and rural health stakeholders; 3)      Conduct modeling of payment and quality proposals to inform rural health care delivery systems and other stakeholders and to assess alternative ways of delivering services in rural communities; 4)      Provide technical assistance to rural health care providers, including ORHP grantees, who seek to participate in a variety of demonstrations and initiatives that can help improve patient outcomes, lower health care costs, and/or improve population health; and 5)      Coordinate with ORHP grantees and other community-based programs in rural communities to facilitate maximum exposure and dissemination of program information, resources, and profiles of innovative rural health entities.
