  • Purpose This notice announces the opportunity to apply for fiscal year 2021 (FY21) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Program funding for the initiative Using Innovative Intervention Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes among People with HIV – Evaluation Center. The purpose of this initiative is to use an implementation science framework1 to evaluate the pilot testing of innovative intervention strategies in four (4) focus areas at implementation sites subawarded through the companion cooperative agreement Using Innovative Intervention Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes among People with HIV – Coordinating Center (2iS CCTA; HRSA-21-076), and to disseminate the evaluation findings. HRSA will provide funding in the form of a cooperative agreement to support one (1) organization for up to four (4) years to serve as the Innovative Intervention Strategies Evaluation Center (2iS EC). The 2iS EC will develop and carry out a multi-site evaluation that includes a customized site-specific evaluation for each of the up to twenty (20) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP)-funded recipients/subrecipients (approximately five sites per focus area) to serve as implementation sites where one intervention strategy per site will be piloted. In addition to the site-specific components, the evaluation will include cross-site components (e.g., costing, organizational assessments) that are consistent across all subawardee sites. Throughout this initiative, the 2iS EC will work closely with the 2iS CCTA, which will provide technical assistance to the subawardees. Ultimately, the 2iS EC’s evaluation findings will determine dissemination plans for the replication tools developed by the 2iS CCTA. Please review the companion funding opportunity announcement for more information on the role of the 2iS CCTA (HRSA-21-076). You may also review the previous initiative for which this is a competing continuation (HRSA-17-044; HRSA-17-049). 2iS Focus Areas This recipient will evaluate the implementation and associated health outcomes of three (3) priority populations and one (1) area of opportunity to improve service delivery for people with HIV. Combined, these four (4) focus areas are: 1) Improving HIV health outcomes for people with substance use disorder 2) Improving HIV health outcomes for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ+) youth 3) Improving HIV health outcomes for people who are or have been incarcerated 4) Improving HIV health outcomes by using telehealth services 1 Psihopaidas D, Cohen SM, West T, et al.

  • Guidance Availablility Yes
  • Purpose The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high risk rural communities. This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under RCORP-Implementation. This funding opportunity, RCORP Implementation, will advance RCORP’s overall goal by strengthening and expanding SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services to enhance rural residents’ ability to access treatment and move towards recovery. In 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a five-point Strategy to Combat Opioid Abuse, Misuse, and Overdose, which outlines concrete steps local communities can take to address the opioid epidemic. In alignment with the HHS Five-Point Strategy, and as part of the RCORP initiative, RCORP-Implementation award recipients will implement a set of core SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery activities, as outlined in Program-Specific Instructions. These activities incorporate evidence-based, promising, and innovative approaches proven to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with opioid use disorder including overdose, such as naloxone distribution and other harm reduction services, and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Given the complex and multifaceted nature of SUD/OUD, as well as the need to secure community buy-in and generate adequate patient volume to sustain services, HRSA requires that applicants be part of broad, multi-sectoral consortia. For the purposes of RCORP-Implementation, a consortium is an organizational arrangement among four or more separately owned domestic public or private entities, including the applicant organization, with established working relationships. The entities, including the applicant organization, must all have different Employment Identification Numbers (EINs).1 Consortia should be able to operationalize their proposed work plans immediately upon receipt of award. The target population for the award is: 1) individuals who are at risk for, have been diagnosed with, and/or are in treatment and/or recovery for OUD; 2) their families and/or caregivers; and 3) other community members2 who reside in HRSA-designated rural areas, as defined by the Rural Health Grants Eligibility Analyzer Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities, as compared to the rest of the target population, when addressing SUD in the proposed service area. For 1 Tribal entities may be exempt from this requirement. Please reference Eligible Applicants for more information. 2 Applicants are encouraged to include individuals in the community who are involved in improving health care in rural areas. example, a recent study found that more rural racial/ethnic minorities reported their health as fair or poor, that they were unable to see a physician in the past 12 months because of cost, and that they did not have a personal health care provider compared to their non-Hispanic white counterparts.3 Examples of these populations include, but are not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, people/persons experiencing homelessness, pregnant women, youth and adolescents, etc. The primary focus of the RCORP-Implementation award program is OUD. However, recognizing that many individuals with OUD are polysubstance users, or have other co-occurring conditions, consortia may also use RCORP-Implementation support to help address other SUD-related needs of the target population of individuals and families affected by OUD. Applicants should link any additional activities they propose to the needs of their target population and service area. Please note that no competitive advantage, funding priority, or preference is associated with proposing activities beyond the core/required activities outlined in Section IV.2. HRSA expects that consortia funded by RCORP-Implementation will sustain the strengthened and/or expanded level of SUD/OUD-related services in rural areas made possible by this funding opportunity both during and beyond the period of performance. Over the course of the three-year period of performance, RCORP-Implementation award recipients will complete detailed plans for sustaining their consortia and SUD/OUD services beyond the RCORP-Implementation period of performance. Finally, RCORP-Implementation award recipients are expected to work closely with a HRSA-funded technical assistance (TA) provider throughout the three-year period of performance. Targeted TA is provided to each award recipient at no additional cost, and is intended to help recipients achieve desired project outcomes, sustain services, align their performance reporting/evaluative activities, implement quality improvement efforts, and overcome challenges to project implementation. HRSA will provide more information about TA support upon receipt of award.

  • Cooperative Agreement True
  • Guidance Availablility Yes
  • Purpose This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems: Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three Program (ECCS). The purpose of this program is to build integrated maternal and early childhood systems1 of care that are equitable, sustainable, comprehensive, and inclusive of the health system, and that promote early developmental health and family well-being and increase family-centered access to care and engagement of the prenatal-to-3 (P–3) population. The goals for the ECCS program are to: 1) Increase state2-level infrastructure and capacity to develop and/or strengthen statewide maternal and early childhood systems of care; 2) Increase coordination and alignment between maternal and child health (MCH) and other statewide systems that impact young children and families to advance a common vision for early developmental health and family well-being; 3) Increase the capacity of health systems to deliver and effectively connect families to a continuum of services that promote early developmental health and family well-being, beginning prenatally; 4) Identify and implement policy and financing strategies that support the funding and sustainability of multigenerational, preventive services and systems for the P–3 population; and 5) Increase state-level capacity to advance equitable and improved access to services for underserved P–3 populations. To advance these goals, recipients will pursue the following core objectives: 1) Increase the number of family and professional leaders engaged in state-level maternal and early childhood initiatives; 2) Develop (or strengthen) and implement a cross-sector state-level maternal and early childhood strategic plan that integrates health with other P–3 systems and programs; 3) Increase the participation of health providers (including obstetricians and pediatricians) in coordinated intake and referral systems (CIRS) or other centralized intake and data coordination efforts for the maternal and P–3 population; 4) Demonstrate progress toward critical policy and financing changes, as identified in state maternal and early childhood strategic plans; and 5) Set specific and measurable P–3 health equity goals in the statewide early childhood strategic plan. ECCS goals and objectives aim to increase statewide access to integrated, effective, culturally appropriate, evidence-based early developmental health and family well-being promotion, prevention, and early intervention practices and services during the prenatal and early childhood period. Earlier family engagement in high-quality comprehensive services supports long-term family protective factors, reductions in risks to health and development, and improvements in indicators of health and well-being.3 See Appendix B for the ECCS program logic model and core assumptions underlying the program. For a detailed description of program expectations, see Section IV.

  • Purpose This notice announces the opportunity for current Health Center Program award recipients to apply for FY 2021 Health Center Program Service Expansion – School-Based Service Sites (SBSS) supplemental funding. The purpose of SBSS is to expand access to health center services by increasing the number of patients who access comprehensive primary health care through Health Center Program award recipients’ service delivery sites located at schools. Health centers will accomplish this by adding new Health Center Program service delivery sites at schools or expanding required and additional health care services at existing Health Center Program service delivery sites located at schools. Such sites (Health Center Program service delivery sites located at a school or on the grounds of a school) are hereafter referred to as school-based service sites. For purposes of this funding opportunity, service expansion is defined as new or expanded general primary medical care, mental health, substance use disorder, oral health, vision, and/or enabling services provided face-to-face or virtually to health center patients at school-based service sites. Health centers may not use SBSS funding to support services provided on behalf of third party entities, including schools and/or school districts. Health centers must ensure compliance with all Health Center Program requirements, including those described in the Health Center Compliance Manual as well as those relating to scope of project, in operating new or expanded school-based service sites.

  • Purpose This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Evidence Based Telehealth Network Program (EB THNP). The two-fold purpose of this award is (1) to demonstrate how health networks can increase access to health care services utilizing telehealth technologies and (2) to conduct evaluations of those efforts to establish an evidence base for assessing the effectiveness of telehealth care for patients, providers, and payers. The implementation of telehealth technology is rapidly expanding into health systems.1 HRSA defines telehealth as the use of electronic information and telecommunication technologies to support and promote long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Telehealth modalities that support clinical treatment may include video conferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications. Rising evidence supports that many health conditions can be addressed with a virtual in home visit from a doctor to his or her patient.2 In 2015, the American College of Physicians declared their position and support for Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) considering the patient has an established relationship with the providers, and the care meets in person standards of quality.3 For this NOFO, applicants must propose to provide DTC telehealth services to patients within established telehealth networks. This can be accomplished, in part, by identifying and partnering with local established health care facilities (especially primary care facilities) within the target service area, elevating the trusted patient-provider relationship, access, and quality of care directly to the patient via telehealth. Also, this service will allow for the expansion of access to care in Medically Underserved Areas (MUA) and primary care or mental health defined Health Professional Shortage areas (HPSA). The EB THNP program presents the opportunity for network sites that are currently or have previously utilized telehealth as defined above to efficiently and effectively pilot and/or expand DTC telehealth care. Applicants for this EB THNP Program must utilize synchronous (real-time virtual visits) audio-visual technology and may include remote patient monitoring (RPM) to provide DTC telehealth care to patients (see Appendix). This EB THNP program will expand access to health services in three clinical primary focus areas: (1) Primary Care, (2) Acute Care, and (3) Behavioral Health Care (see Appendix). In addition, applicants have the option to address one of the following secondary focus areas: Maternal Care, Substance Use Disorder, or Chronic Care Management. Changes to reimbursement policies related to in-home telehealth services and RPM in recent years, particularly in the Medicare program, have laid the framework to enable providers to feasibly integrate these technologies into their practices. For example, even prior to COVID-19, Medicare began to allow beneficiaries to receive telehealth services at home for a limited set of services/conditions including home dialysis and the treatment of a substance use disorder or a co-occurring mental health disorder.4 Home health is also an example of how the Medicare program has expanded the ability of home health agencies (HHAs) to use RPM technologies to augment the health care of the patients they serve. Recently, Medicare explicitly allowed HHAs to provide RPM services to their patients to help foster the adoption of emerging technologies by HHAs and result in more effective care planning.5,6 Such approaches, to the extent that they strengthen rather than supplant existing patterns and systems of care, reinforce the objectives of this funding opportunity. Namely, a key objective of this program is to demonstrate how providers can use DTC telehealth services in a way that enhances the existing health care infrastructure, as opposed to incentivizing care delivery that circumvents and disadvantages providers in local communities, including rural areas. Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities, as compared to the rest of the rural population, when addressing health care needs via telehealth. Examples of these populations include, but are not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, person/persons experiencing homelessness, pregnant women, disabled individuals, youth and adolescents, etc.

  • Purpose This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Emerging Issues in Maternal and Child Health Program. The purpose of this program is to strengthen the capacities of state- and/or local-level organizations to respond to emerging public health issues affecting maternal and child health (MCH) populations. This funding opportunity is a mechanism to support capacity-strengthening activities that will improve state- and/or local-level organizations’ abilities to address emerging issues that threaten the health and well-being of MCH populations in an effective, timely manner. For the purposes of this NOFO, MCH populations include the following groups: women, children (birth to 21), children with special health care needs (CSHCN), adolescents, and families. Recipients will implement a set of activities under at least one of the three capacity-strengthening areas below (See Section IV.2 for details) and through these activities address an emerging issue specific to their state or local community. Capacity Areas: 1) Data and Informational Systems 2) Workforce Development 3) Strategic Partnerships “Emerging issues” refers to issues that affect MCH populations at an increased rate, for which there is new knowledge or an increased level of awareness of, or there are new approaches to solving the issue. The challenge is that these issues are difficult to anticipate and thus difficult for which to have funds set aside. Through this program, the HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) aims to increase the ability of states and local communities to anticipate, prepare, and execute timely responses to emerging issues to reduce their negative impact on MCH populations. You will select an emerging issue specific to the needs of your state or local community. Examples of emerging issues include, but are not limited to, increasing rates of opioid and other substance use disorders, emergent environmental health threats, persistent or increasing disparities in maternal mortality, inadequate availability of and access to behavioral health services, disparities in access to health services for CSHCN, and declining immunization coverage. Successful projects will address an emerging issue that affects MCH populations and has reliable, current data to support it. In November 2020, MCHB released summaries of Title V state needs assessments. Every 5 years states complete a comprehensive needs assessment to assess their progress, identify emerging issues and needs, and set priorities going forward. Regardless of the geographic scope of your project, you are encouraged to utilize your state’s needs assessment report at the Title V Information System (TVIS) to inform the selection of an appropriate emerging issue. See Appendix B for guidance on the TVIS and Section IV.2 for a list of all suggested data sources.

  • Purpose This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Autism Secondary Data Analysis Research (SDAR) Program. This program supports applied Maternal and Child Health (MCH) research that exclusively utilizes the secondary analysis of existing national databases and/or administrative records to determine the evidence-based practices for interventions to improve the physical and behavioral health of children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other Developmental Disabilities (DD), Programs should address ASD/DD across the lifespan, with a focus on addressing the needs of underserved populations for whom there is limited evidence of the effectiveness of interventions, and limited access to screening, diagnosis, and treatment for ASD/DD.2 HRSA supports programs to improve the quality of care for those diagnosed with ASD/DD through education, early detection, and intervention. More specifically, the Autism SDAR program accelerates the pace of research by providing researchers with the opportunity to pose new research questions, test hypotheses, challenge existing paradigms or clinical practices, and explore the feasibility of interventions using existing data sets. The use of existing data sets helps researchers obtain results more efficiently, at a lower cost. Innovative methods (e.g., meta-analyses) and secondary analysis of existing national databases and/or administrative records are encouraged (e.g., National Survey of Children’s Health (HRSA), National Database for Autism Research (National Institutes of Health (NIH)), Medicaid (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), National Health Interview Survey (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)) and Mental Health Research Network Database (NIH)). The Autism SDAR program’s goals and objectives are to: • Generate new evidence to address the needs of underserved ASD/DD populations3 for whom there is limited evidence of the effectiveness of interventions, and limited access to screening, diagnosis, and treatment for ASD/DD; • Contribute to a broad public health impact by improving patient engagement and care delivery through studies that are generalizable and replicable across underserved ASD/DD populations; • Develop and implement a plan to disseminate applied and/or translational research through at least two peer-reviewed research articles related to the project (e.g., findings on research planning, participant recruitment, methods, implementation and/or research challenges, preliminary or unexpected research findings, in addition to final research findings) and to scientific, professional, lay audiences, and federal partners.

  • Purpose The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high risk rural communities. This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under RCORP-Psychostimulant Support (RCORP-PS). RCORP-PS will advance RCORP’s overall goal by strengthening and expanding prevention, treatment, and recovery services for rural individuals who misuse psychostimulants to enhance their ability to access treatment and move towards recovery. Over the course of a three-year period of performance, RCORP-PS award recipients will implement a set of core psychostimulant use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery activities, as outlined in Section IV.2. For the purposes of this funding opportunity, psychostimulants include methamphetamine and other illegal drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy, as well as prescription stimulants for conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or depression.1 Applicants should detail in the "Project Abstract" and “Needs Assessment” sections of the Project Narrative which psychostimulants they propose to target with the funding. Given the complex and multifaceted nature of psychostimulant use disorders, as well as the need to secure community buy-in, HRSA requires that applicants be part of broad, multi-sectoral consortia consisting of four or more separately-owned (i.e., different Employment Identification Numbers (EINs)) entities, including the applicant organization.2 A majority, or at least 50 percent, of separately owned consortium members must be physically located in HRSA-designated rural areas, as defined by the Rural Health Grants Eligibility Analyzer. The target population for this award are 1) individuals who are at risk for, have been diagnosed with, and/or are in treatment and/or recovery for psychostimulant use disorders; 2) their families and/or caregivers; and 3) other community members3 who reside in HRSA-designated rural areas. Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities, as compared to the rest of the target population, when addressing SUD in the proposed service area. For example, a recent study found that more rural racial/ethnic minorities reported their health as fair or poor, that they were unable to see a physician in the past 12 months because of cost, and that they did not have a personal health care provider compared to their non-Hispanic white counterparts.4 Examples of these populations include, but are not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, people/persons experiencing homelessness, pregnant women, youth and adolescents, etc. The primary focus of this award is psychostimulant misuse and use disorders. However, recognizing that many individuals who misuse psychostimulants are polysubstance users, or have other co-occurring conditions, consortia may also use RCORP-PS funding to help address other SUD-related needs of the target population of individuals, families, and other community members affected by psychostimulant use disorders. Applicants should link any additional activities they propose to the needs of their target population and service area. Please note that no competitive advantage, funding priority, or preference is associated with proposing activities beyond the core/required activities outlined in Section IV.2. Finally, RCORP-PS award recipients are expected to work closely with a HRSA-funded technical assistance (TA) provider throughout the three-year period of performance. Targeted TA will be provided to each award recipient at no additional cost, and is intended to help recipients achieve desired project outcomes, sustain services, align their performance reporting/evaluative activities, implement quality improvement efforts, and overcome challenges to project implementation. HRSA will provide more information about TA support upon receipt of award.

  • Purpose Bureau (MCHB)’s Office of Epidemiology and Research is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2021 Autism Field-Initiated Innovative Research Studies (Autism-FIRST) Program. The purpose of this program is to support empirical research that advances the evidence base on interventions designed to improve the health of children, adolescents, and young adults with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities (ASD/DD) across the lifespan. Because racial and ethnic disparities exist in the early screening and diagnosis of ASD/DD, the Autism-FIRST Program has a special focus on addressing the needs of underserved populations, such as low-income, racial/ethnic minorities, individuals living in rural areas and, in the case of ASD/DD populations, girls and young women, who are often under identified with regard to ASD, particularly at the higher functioning end.1 The Autism-FIRST program supports research studies that address critical issues surrounding the health and well-being of underserved children, adolescents, and young adults with ASD/DD up to the age of 26, and their families, recognizing that the first 25 years of life help lay the foundation for health and well-being across the lifespan. A focus on underserved populations is consistent with HRSA’s mission as an agency that promotes access to equitable and coordinated health and health care delivery services. A focus on children, adolescents, and young adults up to the age of 26 is consistent with the mission of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the populations it serves. The Autism-FIRST’s program’s goals and objectives are to: • Generate new evidence to address the needs of underserved ASD/DD populations for whom there is limited evidence of the effectiveness of interventions, and limited access to screening, diagnosis, and treatment for ASD/DD; • Contribute to the broad public health impact to improve health and service delivery services through studies that are generalizable and replicable for underserved ASD/DD populations; and • Conduct and disseminate findings from applied and/or translational research on critical and emerging ASD/DD issues using a research design focused on collection of primary data among underserved populations, with a special focus on underserved populations and children, adolescents, and young adults up to the age of 26. Examples of autism intervention research topics of interest to HRSA’s MCHB include, but are not limited to, developing and testing ways to: o Improve access to supports and services among underserved populations of children, adolescents, and young adults with ASD/DD and their families; o Effectively tailor services, supports, and interventions to individual and family strengths, needs, and challenges, recognizing the heterogeneity with which ASD/DD manifests itself across children, adolescents, and young adults with ASD/DD and their families; o Facilitate the transition into adulthood, including continuity in health care and other supports and services associated with optimal transitions and laying the foundation for improved health and well-being across the lifespan; o Improve the coordination of care across different aspects of the medical home, and/or across multiple sectors (e.g., health, school) that affect the lives of children, adolescents, and young adults with ASD/DD and their families; and o Identify services and supports that mediate or moderate relations between family stresses and outcomes for children, adolescents, and young adults with ASD/DD.
