Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA public or private entity, Tribal entity, CBO, or FBO to improve children's eye health and vision. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended for efforts on the community, state, and national level to develop, identify, and implement evidence-based best practices on improving children’s vision and eye health; compile and utilize state- and community-level data on children’s vision and eye health; and convene family and community partners to lead system, infrastructure, and quality improvement efforts.

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Vision Screening in Young Children Program. The purpose of the program is to improve children’s vision and eye health through early detection, follow-up, treatment, and surveillance at the national, state, and community levels for children under 5 years of age, including traditionally underserved populations, and those residing in medically underserved areas. The recipient will be expected to: 1) Serve as a national resource at the national, state, and community-levels on children’s vision and eye health; and 2) Convene an advisory committee to provide guidance to the Vision Screening in Young Children Program on achieving improved children’s vision and eye health.

Program Objectives - Baseline data will be collected and reported by the recipient to HRSA within the first year of the program.

  1. By August 2022, increase by 10 percent the number of individuals from traditionally underserved populations who serve on the advisory committee to implement vision screening guidelines for young children.
  2. By August 2023, ensure 90 percent of national, state, and community stakeholders, including those representing preschool and early childhood education programs, who participate in the program’s training and technical assistance activities, will demonstrate an increased knowledge and/or awareness of evidence-based vision screening resources, tools, and recommended guidelines.
  3. By August 2023, provide a report that identifies and describes emerging issues and vision screening trends and outcomes in young children, including available data on populations traditionally underserved.
