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.
Under this program, grants will be awarded to address significant disparities in perinatal health indicators in communities within 62 miles of the U.S. Mexico border or in Alaska and Hawaii. Communities must provide a scope of project services that will cover pregnancy and interconceptional phases for women and infants residing in the proposed project area. Services are to be given to both mother and infant for two years following delivery to promote longer interconceptional periods and prevent relapses of unhealthy risk behaviors.
