Eligibility Requirements

Only domestic public or non-profit institutions of higher learning and public or private non-profit agencies engaged in research or in programs relating to maternal and child health and/or services for children with special health care needs are eligible to apply (See 42 CFR § 51a.3(b)). Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply, if they otherwise meet these eligibility criteria.

NOTE: Multiple applications from an organization with the same DUNS number are allowable if the applications propose separate and distinct projects. For example, different investigators (or research teams) from the same institution can apply for the same NOFO.



Amount Description

HRSA estimates approximately $500,000 to be available annually to fund five recipients. The actual amount available will not be determined until enactment of the final FY 2020 federal appropriation. You may apply for a ceiling amount of up to $100,000 total cost (includes both direct and indirect, facilities and administrative costs) per year. The FY 2020 President’s Budget does not request funding for this program. 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 period of performance is July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 (1 year).
