Funds for Teenage Pregnancy Prevention: Research and Demonstration Programs
Deadline: Apr. 24
The purpose of this announcement is to work with three to five communities with high teen pregnancy rates to develop innovative strategies for preventing teen pregnancy in populations/areas with demonstrated need. These could include high-risk, vulnerable, and culturally under-represented youth populations, and/or youth residing in areas with high birth or teen pregnancy rates. The successful applicant is expected to bring together a team in each selected community made up of representatives from various sectors to develop a strategy or prevention framework to address teen pregnancy prevention in their individual community.

Newborn Screening Data Repository and Technical Assistance Center
Deadline: May 5
This announcement solicits applications for the Newborn Screening Data Repository and Technical Assistance Center. The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to enable the awardee to: enhance, improve, or expand the ability of State and local public health agencies to provide screening, counseling, or health care services to newborns and children having or at risk for heritable disorders; assist in providing health care professionals and newborn screening laboratory personnel with education in newborn screening and training in relevant and new technologies in newborn screening and congenital, genetic, and metabolic disorders; develop and deliver educational programs (at appropriate literacy levels) about newborn screening counseling, testing, follow-up, treatment, and specialty services to parents, families, and patient advocacy and support groups; and establish, maintain, and operate a system to assess and coordinate treatment relating to congenital, genetic, and metabolic disorders.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Practice and Implementation Centers
Deadline: May 13
The purpose of this program announcement is to expand previous efforts from FASD training programs and shift the perspective of this work from individual training for practicing health care professionals to one that capitalizes on prevention opportunities and the ability to impact health care practice at the systems level. Significant research in recent years has enabled the development of programs that are effective and targeted to specific populations for reducing the risk of an alcohol-exposed pregnancy, in turn preventing FASDs. Thus, while prevention, identification, and treatment of FASDs continue to be at the core of this work, an increased emphasis on training practicing health care professionals and primary prevention of alcohol-exposed pregnancies is also a highlight. To reflect this change in focus, these programs are hereby referred to as FASD Practice and Implementation Centers (PICs). This announcement reflects the need for stronger linkages with medical societies and national professional and partner organizations and an increased emphasis on demonstrable practice change that will be sustained beyond CDC funding.

Improving FASD Prevention and Practice through National Partnerships
Deadline: May 13
This is a new program with an overall goal of strengthening strategic partnerships with key national medical societies, professional organizations and constituent groups. It is designed to support two crucial components of a multifaceted approach to enhance FASD training, provider education and practice change and complements CDC-RFA-DD14-1402, which will fund FASD PICs.

Interventions for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Native American Populations
Deadline: May 15
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to develop, adapt, and test the effectiveness of health promotion and disease prevention interventions in Native American (NA) populations. NA populations are exposed to considerable risk factors that significantly increase their likelihood of chronic disease, substance abuse, mental illness, and HIV-infection. The intervention program should be culturally appropriate and promote the adoption of healthy lifestyles, improve behaviors and social conditions and/or improve environmental conditions related to chronic disease, the consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, mental illness or HIV-infection. The intervention program should be designed so that it could be sustained within the entire community within existing resources, and, if successful, disseminated in other Native American communities. The long-term goal of this FOA is to reduce mortality and morbidity in NA communities. For more information, click here.

State Implementation Grants for Enhancing the System of Services for CYSHCN through Systems Integration
Deadline: Jun. 13
This announcement solicits applications for the 2014 State Implementation Grants for Enhancing the System of Services for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs through Systems Integration. The purpose of this initiative is to increase the number of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) who receive a patient/family-centered medical/health home approach to comprehensive, coordinated services and supports. Through a national technical assistance center and a cross-state learning community, states will increase their capacity to coordinate policy, program development/analysis, and collaborative partnerships across agencies, organizations and programs at the state and local levels.
