MCH Field-Initiated Innovative Research Studies
Deadline: Aug. 19, 2016
The Health Resources and Services Administration is accepting applications for MCH Field-Initiated Innovative Research Studies (FIRST). The program supports innovative, translational and applied research on critical issues affecting maternal and child health, including services for children with special health care needs. The program is designed to promote innovation in the field by supporting the exploration of new ideas and interventions. Research should advance the current knowledge pool and, when implemented in states and communities, should result in health services improvement. Findings from the research supported by the MCH FIRST program are expected to help explore and develop new ideas and interventions that strengthen and expand topics addressed by the MCH Block Grant National Performance Domains and the populations they serve.
