The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Maternal and Child Health Bureau is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 for the Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network on School-Based Health Services (CoIIN-SBHS). The purpose of this program is to improve children’s and adolescents’ access to high quality, comprehensive health care through the expanded use of evidence-based models of school-based health (SBH) services that improve the quality, sustainability, and growth of SBH centers and comprehensive school mental health systems (CSMHSs). The intent of the CoIIN-SBHS is to improve the quality of SBH centers and CSMHSs, and to enhance the sustainability and growth of these models of SBH services across the nation and in urban, suburban, and rural settings. 

Multiple applications from an organization are not allowable.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible applicants include any domestic public or private entity, including any Indian tribe or tribal organization (as those terms are defined at 25 U.S.C. 450b). See 42 CFR § 51a.3(a). Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations also are eligible to apply.



Amount Description

HRSA estimates approximately $850,000 to be available annually to fund one recipient. You may apply for a ceiling amount of up to $850,000 total cost (includes both direct and indirect, facilities and administrative costs) per year. The actual amount available will not be determined until enactment of the final FY 2018 federal appropriation. This program notice is subject to the appropriation of funds, and is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, HRSA can process applications and award funds in a timely manner. The project period is September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2023 (5 years). Funding beyond the first year is dependent on the availability of appropriated funds for the CoIIN-SBHS Program in subsequent fiscal years, satisfactory recipient performance, and a decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the Federal Government.
