Hospital-Based Adoption Support Services: The Children's Bureau announces the availability of competitive grant funds authorized by the Adoption Opportunities program. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to award one 18-month discretionary grant to improve hospital-based adoption support services for pregnant and expectant mothers through training of hospital-based adoption support service providers, doctors, and staff who provide pregnancy or adoption information and referrals, using an existing infant adoption awareness training curriculum. The funded project will train these designated staff in accordance with best practice guidelines specific to infant adoption awareness training in providing adoption information and referrals to pregnant women on an equal basis with all other courses of action included in nondirective counseling. Such activities will help ensure that mothers who wish to make an adoption have access to appropriately trained staff and comprehensive supports throughout the adoption process.
