Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, school districts, and tribal organizations for projects to reduce adverse childhood experiences amongst children in low-income families. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete.

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health and the Office of Minority Health (OMH) announce the availability of funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 grant awards under the authority of Section 1707 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 300u-6).  OMH is dedicated to improving the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs that will help eliminate health disparities. Through its demonstration grants, OMH supports the identification of effective approaches for improving health outcomes with the ultimate goal of promoting the dissemination and sustainability of these approaches. This particular grant aligns with the Healthy People 2020 focus area of Injury and Violence Prevention, the U.S. Surgeon General’s priority on Community Health and Economic Prosperity and HHS Strategic Goal 2: Protect the Health of Americans Where They Live, Learn, Work, and Play.4,5,6

The Community-based Approaches to Strengthening Economic Supports for Working Families initiative will serve low-income working families disproportionately at risk for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), including racial and ethnic minority families. This initiative seeks to determine whether the implementation of earned income tax credit (EITC) outreach and education activities in communities at higher risk for ACEs can result in (1) increased EITC receipt and (2) changes in risk and/or protective factors for ACEs. OMH expects projects funded under this initiative to: (1) establish multi-sectoral partnerships to support EITC outreach and education activities in communities at higher risk for ACEs; (2) plan and implement EITC outreach and education activities in communities at higher risk for ACEs; (3) develop and implement a process and outcome evaluation plan; (4) communicate and disseminate findings, successes and lessons learned; and (5) plan for sustainability of successful interventions.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Due Date: August 17, 2020, 6:00 PM ET. To receive consideration, you must submit your application electronically via Grants.gov no later than this due date and time. You are strongly encouraged to submit your application a minimum of 3-5 days prior to the application closing date.

For information about exemption from the above deadline, see p. 4 of the Funding Opportunity in Attached Files below.

The HHS/OASH GAM will only accept applications via alternate methods (hardcopy paper via U.S. mail or other provider or PDF via email) from applicants obtaining prior written approval. If you receive an exemption, you must still submit your application by the deadline.

As soon as possible, you should discuss the project with the State Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for the State in which your organization is located. For more information, see the SPOC List in Supporting Documents below.

Required Registrations:
- To ensure adequate time to submit your application successfully, HHS/OASH recommends that you register as early as possible in Grants.gov since the registration process can take up to one month.
- You are required to provide a Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number when applying for Federal awards through Grants.gov.
- Your organization must register online in the System for Award Management (SAM). Because of the public health emergency with COVID19, the requirement for SAM registration at the time of submission has been waived. Grants.gov will temporarily allow submissions without a current SAM registration. A completed registration in SAM may be required prior to receiving any award based on your application. You should allow a minimum of five days to complete an initial SAM registration. Allow up to 10 business days after you submit your registration for it to be active in SAM. This timeframe may be longer if SAM flags the information you provide for manual validation.
