Additional Information on Eligibility
As cited in 42 CFR Part 51a.3 (a), any public or private entity, including an Indian tribe or tribal organization, faith based and community based organization (as those terms are defined at 25 U.S.C. 450b), is eligible to apply for federal funding. Public health programs serving medically underserved areas and populations, national and state voluntary autism spectrum disorder organizations, and entities with significant experience and expertise with autism spectrum disorder programs are encouraged to apply. States that have previously received grants under the Program, State Autism Implementation Grants for Improving Services for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders are not eligible to apply.
The purpose of this opportunity is to support the planning process for developing an autism spectrum disorders (ASD) state plan and advisory panel that will improve the system of services for children and youth with special health care needs who have ASD and other developmental disabilities as defined by the following components: partnerships between professionals and families of children and youth with ASD, access to a culturally competent family-centered medical home which coordinates care with pediatric subspecialties and community-based services, access to adequate health insurance and financing of services, early and continuous screening for ASD and other developmental disabilities, community services organized for easy use by families, and transition to adult health care. The organizations applying for this planning grant must demonstrate capacity to develop effective coalition/partnerships between the State Title V Program for Children with Special Health Care Needs, Primary Care Providers including the State Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, pediatric specialists, family leaders and parent organizations such as Family Voices and local autism support groups, state and community agencies, state legislatures, public and private payers, and schools. In addition, this planning grant must describe how the proposed activities will enhance its capacity to successfully compete for the State Implementation Grants for Improving Services for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other Developmental Disabilities Grant Opportunity in the future.
