CDC: Improving Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Prevention and Practice through National Partnerships

Program Summary

this FOA focuses on linking the work of the newly designed FASD Practice and Implementation Centers (PICs) to two types of organizations. The first type (Component 1) includes organizations that are national in scope with state and local chapters whose primary purpose is to help practicing professionals (e.g., pediatricians, obstetricians and gynecologists, nurses, family practitioners, internists, social workers, etc.) stay current in their fields. The second type of organization (Component 2) includes organizations who have a primary mission or focus on FASDs and who have national reach through an existing network of member organizations focusing on FASDs at the state and/or local levels. 
Institutions may only submit one application under this FOA, for either Component 1 or Component 2.
Component 1: Applicants must further identify the professional specialty (e.g., pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, nursing, family practice, internal medicine, social work, etc.) that their organization has within its mission the capacity to cover on a national basis. To achieve solid national coverage, the organization should have regional or state offices or chapters and demonstrate how these chapters work together to reach members across the nation.  Documentation of the organization’s mission statement, structure and its processes for ensuring that local, state and national members’ needs are addressed should be provided in the organization’s proposal. 
Component 2: Organizations who are applying under Component 2 must provide a copy of their mission statement reflecting that their work and priorities focus on FASDs. This information should be provided in the organization’s proposal.
