Health Resources & Services Administration
HRSA is pleased to provide this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for the Targeted Issues Demonstration Projects. Support is available from the Division of Child, Adolescent, and Family Health (DCAFH), part of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Please read the entire FOA carefully before completing the application.
The Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program works to ensure that critically ill and injured children receive optimal pediatric emergency care.
This FOA for the Targeted Issues grants is intended to invite applications that will improve the care provided by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers for critically ill and injured children. Applicants should address specific needs in the field of prehospital pediatric emergency care that transcend State boundaries. Examples of prior Targeted Issue grants can be found at http://www.childrensnational.org/emsc. Note that funding priorities and focus areas differed in prior years. Read this FOA carefully for the current focus area.
There will be two categories of grants (see details below). Category I projects will demonstrate the establishment of an infrastructure for pediatric Prehospital research. Category II projects will improve pediatric Prehospital research. Typically, the projects result in a new product/resource or the demonstration of the effectiveness of a model system component or service of value to the nation. Objectives must meet a demonstrable need in the prehospital care of children, and methodologies and strategies for achieving the objectives must be realistic, appropriate and scientifically sound.
Evaluation and dissemination are important components of Targeted Issues grants. Rigorous evaluation identifies successful projects and permits demonstration of successful projects for development and implementation in other places in the nation. Dissemination plans should go beyond peer review publication to broader publication through alternative means to reach the target audience.
For the current fiscal year, the following focus areas have been identified:
