Grant Amount: Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding: $900,000 for Parts A and B (Part A: $350,000; Part B: $550,000). Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $2,700,000 over 3 years for Parts A and B (Part A: $1,050,000 over 3 years Part B: $1,650,000 over 3 years)
The purpose of this announcement is to support networking, capacity building, and professional development and training programs that will ultimately result in an increase in the identification of people with chronic HBV and/or HCV infection. This announcement has two separate components, described consecutively below as Part A: Networking and Capacity Building and Part B: Professional Education and Training.
Part A: Networking and capacity building activities are intended for national organizations and groups that in turn are able to network and partner with regional, state, and local organizations that serve the populations most affected by chronic viral hepatitis. Capacity building is defined as the provision of organizational development assistance designed to improve an organization’s ability to achieve specific goals. Organizational assistance can encompass a broad range of activities such as face-to-face and online training; technical assistance in person, by telephone, and online; and peer-to-peer or expert consultation, coaching, and mentoring; as well as other efforts to increase organizational infrastructure and achieve the stated goals. CDC recognizes that many organizations may have limited resources and therefore face challenges in their ability to sustain and expand services. CDC is committed to ensuring that limited resources are shared as widely as possible and that networking, organizational development, technical assistance and capacity building may be necessary to ensure much-needed services at the local level.
Part B: This FOA will fund activities to support professional development and training targeting a U.S. health care and public health workforce that will result in increased knowledge and ability to screen and diagnose viral hepatitis and provide care to infected persons. A workforce of health professionals trained in viral hepatitis will lead to more individuals being aware of their infections and linked to medical care and treatment services and ultimately reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with chronic infections. Health care and public health workforce is defined as those individuals working in public health or private settings that provide counseling, clinical and/or medical care, including, but not limited to: physicians, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, nurses, mental health counselors, community health workers, public health practitioners and others who provide services to populations affected by viral hepatitis. Henceforth, these groups will be referred to as health professionals.
