Additional Information on Eligibility
These competitions are open to new applicants and existing competing continuation* Healthy Start projects. Applicants for funding in these competitions under the Healthy Start Program must be public or non profit entities, including faith-based and community-based organizations, Indian tribes, or tribal organizations (the latter two as defined at 25 U.S.C. 450b). An eligible applicant must have both direct fiduciary and administrative responsibility over the project. A project area is defined as a geographic community in which the proposed services are to be implemented. A project area must represent a reasonable and logical catchment area, but the defined areas do not have to be contiguous. Communities are broadly defined so that multi-county projects serving racial/ethnic or other disparate groups (e.g., Hmongs, Native Americans, etc.) are eligible. Border communities are those communities located within 62 miles of the U.S./Mexican border.
