Grants ranging from $10,00 to $50,000 to California nonprofit organizations, for-profits, and government agencies seeking financial assistance for projects or programs that improve education, services, and access to care for pregnant women, women of childbearing age, and interconception women.
Projects funded through this program must meet one of the following funding priorities:
- Encouraging women to space pregnancies at least 18 months apart
- Increasing use of progesterone for women with a history of prior preterm birth
- Increasing use of low-dose aspirin to prevent preeclampsia
Priority Counties and Populations in California:
- Counties with high burden/high volume of preterm births: Alameda, Fresno, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego and Santa Clara.
- Racial/ethnic populations with high disparities in preterm birth rates. Priority will be given to applications demonstrating outreach and services specifically targeted to African-American women.
- Women with a history of prior premature birth. Having a premature birth in the past is one of the strongest clinical risk factors and increases a woman’s risk of having a subsequent premature birth by 1.5 to 2-fold.
Grantee sites can be clinics, health centers, health systems, or non-clinical community-based programs or agencies, or several partners within a community that come together to simultaneously implement, for example:
- Clinics and Clinical providers: Ob/Gyn, family practice, primary care, midwifery, oral health care providers, etc
- Community-based organizations/non-clinical providers, e.g.: promotoras, WIC, home visitors, community health workers, care coordinators, etc
- One agency/clinic/site may function as the coordinator/convener for their community partners (and as the lead grant applicant). In your budget and staffing plan, consider if time to coordinate, implement and evaluate can be built into existing staff time or if coordinator time needs to be included in the grant budget (for staff/consultant not already employed full time).
Allowable Costs Include:
- Salary - grant funds may be used to cover salaries for project-related employees, but cannot be used to pay salary costs for employees who are already employed full-time. Exceptions may be made in circumstances where a specified position is supported primarily by grant funds and the applicant can demonstrate that the requested funds would replace existing grant funds.
- Consultant fees.
- Materials and supplies (e.g. office supplies, health-related materials, refreshments, incentives) necessary to accomplish the specific objectives of the proposal that are usually "used up" in the course of the project. Incentives are items used to enable or ensure participants are able to take advantage of services provided by grantees, for example metro or bus cards to assist women in attending prenatal care appointments or educational sessions.
- Printing and travel that are reasonable and necessary for project implementation. March of Dimes funds may NOT be used to pay for first class travel.
- Facilities - rental costs associated with using a physical location for an activity necessary to accomplish the specific objectives of the proposal are permitted.
- Indirect costs are allowable for grants of $25,000 or more only and cannot exceed 10% of total costs.
