NON-NIH Funding Opportunity Announcements:

 

ACF: Street Outreach Program

Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2015-ACF-ACYF-YO-0956

The purpose of the Street Outreach Program (SOP) is to fund the provision of street-based services to runaway, homeless, and street youth who have been subjected to, or are at risk of being subjected to, sexual abuse, prostitution, or sexual exploitation. In communities across the country, young people are living on the streets after running from or being asked to leave homes characterized by abuse, neglect, or parental drug and alcohol abuse. Once on the streets, such youth are at risk of being sexually exploited or abused by adults for pleasure or profit. In addition, youth may engage in shoplifting, survival sex, or drug dealing in order to provide for their basic needs. These services, which are provided in areas where street youth congregate, are designed to assist such youth in making healthy choices regarding where they live and how they behave. This funding opportunity was announced on February 9, 2015. The application deadline is April 10, 2015. For more information, please visit ACF's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

ACF: Basic Center Program

Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2015-ACF-ACYF-CY-0957

The purpose of the Basic Center Program (BCP) is to provide an alternative for runaway and homeless youth who might otherwise end up with law enforcement or in the child welfare, mental health, or juvenile justice systems. The BCP works to establish or strengthen community-based programs that meet the immediate needs of runaway and homeless youth and their families. The BCP provides youth up to age 18 years with emergency shelter, food, clothing, counseling and referrals for health care. Most basic centers can provide 21 days of shelter for up to 20 youth at a time. There are exceptions for jurisdictions that have different standards for licensing. Basic Centers seek to reunite young people with their families, whenever possible, or to locate appropriate alternative placements. Services will include (1) street-based services, (2) home-based services for families with youth at risk of separation from the family, (3) drug abuse education and prevention services, and (4) at the request of runaway and homeless youth, testing for sexually transmitted infections. This funding opportunity was announced on February 9, 2015. The application deadline is April 10, 2015. For more information, please visit ACF's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

 

ACL: Senior Medicare Patrol Projects - Empowering Seniors to Prevent Health Care Fraud

Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2015-ACL-CCASD-MP-0091

The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program has made great progress in recruiting and training volunteers to empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education. SMP projects actively work to disseminate SMP fraud prevention and identification information through the media, outreach campaigns, community events and also working with beneficiaries who present with complex cases such as compromised Medicare numbers. Through these efforts, beneficiaries contact the projects with inquiries and complaints regarding Medicare, Medicaid and other health care or related consumer issues.

AHRQ: Making Health Care Safer in Ambulatory Care Settings and Long Term Care Facilities

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-HS-15-002

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research projects focused on understanding the epidemiology of patient safety in ambulatory settings and resident safety in long term care settings, gather evidence on strategies that improve patient and resident safety in these settings, and develop evidence-based tools to facilitate implementation of these strategies. To date, the most significant research efforts have focused on the inpatient setting where a patient stays for one or more nights in a hospital for treatment. A body of research dedicated to patient safety in other settings, including ambulatory and long term care settings, has also emerged, but research and initiatives to improve safety in these settings is more limited  than the inpatient setting. As such, a need exists for more information about the characteristics of patient safety in these settings and the actions that are needed to realize improvements. Ambulatory care takes place in any non-inpatient setting and includes, but is not limited to physicians' and practitioners' offices and clinics. Long term care facilities include nursing homes, assisted living and residential care homes. Ambulatory care sites and long term care facilities are settings with high patient/resident volume and high potential for harm. It is vital to leverage and build on the knowledge gained from the inpatient arena while also recognizing the unique challenges and barriers for ensuring patient safety in these settings. Knowledge gained from these projects will support the development of strategies and tools to deliver quality care that is safe in the ambulatory and long term care settings. This funding opportunity was announced on February 13, 2015. The application deadline is April 27, 2015. For more information, please visit AHRQ's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.
