Centers for Birth Defects Research and Prevention (CBDRPs) (U01): The purpose of the program is to support: 1) the continuance and expansion of the epidemiological research capability of the state Centers for Birth Defects and Research Prevention (CBDRP) through participation of the state CBDRP in the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS); and 2) the utilization, implementation, and evaluation of the surveillance data for local and collaborative studies into birth defects research including environmental exposures, genetic factors, gene-gene interactions, and gene-environment interactions. The CBDRP is a collaborative effort between CDCs NCBDDD and the funded sites. The primary collaborative activity of this project is the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS), a population-based, case-control study of environmental and genetic risk factors for major birth defects.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible Institutions Only states, or a bona fide agent of a state (agency/organization identified by the state), operating established Centers for Birth Defects Research and Prevention (CBDRPs) under PA 02081 and are currently contributing data to the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS) are eligible to submit an application under this FOA. These eligible states or bona fide agents include: 1. University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; Little Rock, Arkansas 2. California March of Dimes; Oakland, California 3. University of Iowa; Iowa City, Iowa 4. Massachusetts Department of Public Health; Boston, Massachusetts 5. New York State Department of Health; Albany, New York 6. University of North Carolina School of Public Health; Chapel Hill, North Carolina 7. Texas Department of State Health Services; Austin, Texas 8. Utah Department of Health; Salt Lake City, Utah In 1996, Congress appropriated funds to initiate activities described in the Birth Defects Prevention Act of 1997, including the establishment of the CBDRPs. In FY 1996, five year cooperative agreements were awarded to California, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York, and Texas, and in FY 1997 Arkansas and New Jersey were funded to establish centers in these states and support their collaboration in activities aimed at the prevention of birth defects. In FY 2002, PA 02081 was issued and an open competition was held for the next five year funding cycle of the CBDRPs. The seven selected sites included five previous grantees (Arkansas, California, Iowa, Massachusetts, and Texas) and two new sites (North Carolina and Utah). Additional funds were appropriated in FY 2003 to fund an additional site (New York). The CDC participates as the ninth site, with cases with cases drawn from the CDCs Metropolitan Atlanta Congenital Defects Program. The five state departments of health and the three bona fide agents of a state funded under PA 02081 are uniquely qualified to conduct the activities supported through this FOA because they are the only organizational units that currently perform or have access to the states birth defects surveillance data. They also have the public health authority and/or legislative mandate to conduct birth defects activities which gives them unique and specific access to datasets from multiple data sources that are required to implement the activities outlined in this announcement. The eight grantees funded under PA 02081 have built extensive infrastructure and have developed significant expertise in birth defects.
