Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #162723

Grant Description

Grants to USA, territories, and tribal agencies to collect population-based data in order to mitigate maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. On October 14 an optional teleconference will be held. October 26 is the optional deadline to submit an LOI. Data will help inform policies to improve maternal and infant health and will be used to inform maternal and infant health programs, health policies, and maternal behaviors.

Funds will be provided to support State public health agencies to:

1) Establish or maintain surveillance of selected maternal behaviors and experiences that occur prior to, during, and after pregnancy in 50 states;
2) Provide a high quality data source for ongoing monitoring of risk factors for maternal and infant health;
3) Use PRAMS methods and survey supplements to address emerging issues that may arise during the data collection cycle including the response to post-disaster or pandemic surveillance needs; and
4) Ensure data collection results are available to inform state and national program and policies, facilitate partnerships, and demonstrate the utility of PRAMS as a data source for state and national surveillance.

The activities in the FOA will be conducted under 4 separate components of funding:

1) Component A: Core Surveillance to implement the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) surveillance on selected maternal behaviors and experiences that occur prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy in 50 states by establishing new sites and maintaining existing sites, and to use PRAMS methods and survey supplements to monitor emerging issues that may arise during the data collection cycle including the response to post-disaster or pandemic surveillance needs.

2) Component B: Point-in-time Surveillance to establish a point-in-time (e.g. one time, one birth year) surveillance on selected maternal behaviors and experiences that occur prior to, during, and after pregnancy and early infancy for entities with a small birth population.
