ACTION: Notice of a HRSA-Initiated Supplemental Award to Recipients in
the Reaching Practicing Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Professionals
in Underserved Areas through Education and Training Program.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: HRSA announces the award of a supplement of $705,246 for the
Reaching Practicing MCH Professionals in Underserved Areas through
Education and Training Program (hereafter Program) recipients. The
supplement will allow the current four recipients, during the period of
June 1, 2019-May 31, 2020, to continue supporting the development and
implementation of in-depth training tailored to the specific needs of
MCH public health professionals practicing in underserved communities,
including rural and frontier areas and Indian reservations.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Intended Recipients of Award: The Regents of the University of
Colorado, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston,
University of New Mexico, and University of Washington.
    Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $705,246.
    Period of Supplemental Funding: 06/01/2019-05/31/2020.
    CFDA Number: 93.110.
    Authority: Social Security Act, Title V, Sec.  501(a)(2) (42 U.S.C.
701(a)(2)).
    Justification: The purpose of the Program is to strengthen the
nation's (59 states and jurisdictions) public health system by
developing the MCH public health workforce in underserved and
geographically isolated communities, including rural, frontier areas,
and Indian reservations. The purpose of the supplement from HRSA is to
extend the performance period of the current four recipients to
continue supporting the development and implementation of in-depth
training tailored to the specific needs of MCH public health
professionals practicing in underserved communities. These four
recipients received their original awards for the period of June 1,
2014 through May 31, 2019 through a competitive process. The non-
competitive supplement will allow grantees to complete training
activities consistent with approved activities in their competing
applications. Activities will include outreach and training for MCH
professionals in tribal communities and training for MCH professionals
on pressing topics such as mental health and substance use disorders.
This supports the overall goal of the Program to strengthen the
nation's public health system by developing the MCH public health
workforce in underserved and geographically isolated communities.
