Grants to Nebraska nonprofits, local agencies, Indian tribes, and IHEs to improve heath outcomes specifically for children and youth. Funding is intended for health services and interventions for adolescents and children, including those with special healthcare needs. The target population are Nebraska children and youth, ages 1 - 21. Funding will support short-term, impactful projects, not ongoing programs.
Nebraska’s identified priorities listed below are numbered for reference, not for ranking:
1. Reduce unintentional injuries among Children and Youth, including motor vehicle crashes.
2. Increase access to preventive and early intervention mental health services for Children.
3. Reduce obesity/overweight among Children and Youth, including food insecurity and physical inactivity.
4. Reduce sexually transmitted disease among Youth.
For additional information about these priorities, see page 7 of the RFA in Supporting Documents, below.
Projects must fall in one of three stages: Stage 1: Planning & Development; Stage 2: Implementation; or Stage 3: Expansion. All projects shall be preceded by a community-level assessment completed within the prior five-year period. Regardless of stage, proposed projects must emphasize community involvement in some way. Meaningful, innovative partnerships that bring together persons with diverse backgrounds in education, income, race, ethnicity, family status, etc. is expected.
For additional information about Project Stages, see page 8 of the RFA in Supporting Documents, below.
Subawards resulting from this RFA will support activities that fall into two of these HRSA-defined services: 1) Public Health Services & Systems (capacity-building, infrastructure, and/or population-based services); and, 2) Enabling Services (some types of supportive services). Expenses for the third service type (direct services) does not fit in short-term, project-based work resulting from this RFA and will not be approved.

There is no established cap on a single Application because the request depends on the comprehensiveness of the proposed project. However, reasonable funding requests for Year 1 for the purpose of the funds are most likely in the range of $40,000 to $100,000.
Initial period of performance is August 1, 2019 - July 31, 2020.
The initial period of performance is Year 1, with Year 2 anticipated for projects with planning and subsequent implementation of an agreed-upon strategy by the community and for costs allowable for MCHBG funding. Year 2 funding will also be dependent on Year 1 performance as evidenced by progress made in the Work Plan (on time and meeting Performance Measures), and staying within budget. Year 2 funding is also contingent on the anticipated 2020 MCHBG appropriation and award to DHHS.
