FY17 Announcement of Anticipated Availability of Funds for Embryo Donation and/or Adoption Grant
The Office of Population Affairs (OPA) announces the anticipated availability of funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 grant awards under the authority of Division H, Title II of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law No. 114-113), subsequent Continuing Resolutions for FY 2017 (Public Law Nos. 114-223 and 114-254), and Section 1704 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 300u-3). This notice solicits applications for projects which 1) increase public awareness of embryo donation and/or adoption, or 2) provide to individuals adopting embryos…medical and administrative services deemed necessary” for embryo donation/adoption. For the purposes of this announcement, counseling is considered a “medical service.” “Administrative services” are those that help an embryo donation/adoption patient (or couple) to negotiate the process of embryo donation/adoption. OPA anticipates approximately $700,000 will be available to support 3-6 new grants. Funding for each grant will range between $100,000 and $300,000 per year. Grants under this program will be awarded to organizations rather than to individuals.
