Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Regional Training Centers: CDCs Procurement and Grants Office has published a new funding opportunity entitled, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Regional Training Centers. $1,000,000 will be available in FY2005 to fund four awards. As part of the fiscal year 2002 appropriations funding legislation, the U.S. Congress mandated that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), acting through the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) Prevention Team and in coordination with the National Task Force on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Effect (NTFFAS/FAE), other federally funded FAS programs, and appropriate nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), would (1) develop guidelines for the diagnosis of FAS and other negative birth outcomes resulting from prenatal exposure to alcohol; (2) incorporate these guidelines into curricula for medical and allied health students and practitioners, and seek to have them fully recognized by professional organizations and accrediting boards; and (3) disseminate curricula to and provide training for medical and allied health students and practitioners regarding these guidelines. The purpose of the program is to implement, evaluate, and enhance the existing Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) Regional Training Centers (RTCs). For complete program details, please see the full announcement on the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/od/pgo/funding/05036.htm. The estimated funding date is August 30, 2005.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants are limited to those previously funded under Program Announcement No. 00064: Meharry Medical College in collaboration with Morehouse School of Medicine, St. Louis University School of Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles School of Medicine, and University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. This limited eligibility is based on sustaining support to established projects, and to take advantage of the foundation and training and educational delivery systems developed and now in place to educate and train medical and allied health students and practitioners regarding FAS. These grantees have developed educational and training materials and have conducted a variety of educational events for medical and allied health students and professionals in all regions. These four university-based grantees are uniquely qualified to implement, evaluate and enhance the existing RTCs because they have: already developed FAS competencies for medical and allied health students and professionals; developed educational curricula and are developing training materials based on the FAS competencies; extensive experience in the field of FAS and the education of medical and allied health students and practitioners regarding FAS; access to the target audiences for the cooperative agreement; previously established institutional support for work in this area; already developed relationships throughout their respective regions necessary to continue this work; and demonstrated overall success in working collaboratively with CDC over the last three years in the initial cooperative agreement. The new cooperative agreement will be a continuation of the work conducted by the existing RTCs (2002-2005) and thus the four current grantees are uniquely qualified to carry on this work.
