Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) State Partnership Grant Program: This announcement solicits applications for the Emergency Medical Services for Children State Partnership Grant Program in one of three categories, Planning, Implementation and Partnership. The overall mission of the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program is to reduce the prevalence of pediatric morbidity and mortality that may occur as a result of acute illness and severe injury. To accomplish this mission, the EMSC Program works to institutionalize pediatric-centered healthcare programs within States, and promotes the value and importance of Integration. Integrating the pediatric population's emergency healthcare needs and resources will improve the process, access, and delivery of the emergency medical services system to respond, provide intervention, and transport to the most appropriate healthcare facility; and the pediatric-readiness of health institutions to medically manage and adequately treat children in emergency situations all across the country. The purpose of the EMSC State Partnership Program is to assist States in expanding and improving their capacity to reduce and ameliorate pediatric emergencies, taking special care to include children with special health needs, culturally distinct populations and historically underrepresented groups, including the U.S. Territories, the Freely Associated States, and American Indian/Native Americans. This will be accomplished using existing research-based knowledge, state-of-the-art systems development approaches, and the experience and products of previous EMSC grantees. State Partnership grants are intended to solidify the integration of a pediatric focus within state EMS systems. States are guided by Standards of Achievement through Program-defined Performance Measures. The Performance Measures are the primary goals, objectives and priorities of the EMSC State Partnership Program.

- Applicants Eligible for this Grant
- State governments - Others (see text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility" for clarification)
- Additional Information on Eligibility
- State governments and accredited schools of medicine in states are the only eligible applicants for funding under the EMSC Program. The Emergency Medical Services for Children statute establishes a program for States through a State-designated agency, or to accredited medical schools within States, to support a program of demonstration projects for the expansion and improvement of emergency medical services for children who need treatment for trauma or critical care (Section 1910 of the PHS Act). For purposes of this grant program, the term ``State'' includes the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia. The term ``school of medicine'' is defined as having the same meaning as set forth in Section 799B of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 295p(1)(A)). "Accredited" in this context has the same meaning as set forth in section 799B (1)(E) of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 295p(1)(E)). It is the intent of this grant program to stimulate further development or expansion of ongoing efforts in the States to reduce the problems of life-threatening pediatric trauma and critical illness. It is anticipated that applications will be submitted by the organization responsible for EMS for children, which may be the State Emergency Medical Services (EMS) office. The involvement of the State MCH program in all grant categories is strongly encouraged. Linking EMSC activities with the system of care for children is essentially a key step to successfully integrating the pediatric needs into the entire continuum of care. Such involvement could be demonstrated by a letter of support. If the applicant is a school of medicine or the state MCH program, the application must be endorsed by the State EMS office. The State's endorsement must acknowledge that the applicant has consulted with the State and that the State has been assured that the applicant will work with the State on the proposed project. This endorsement must accompany the application. Without the endorsement, the application will not be considered for funding.
