Funding Opportunity: HRSA P4 Challenge to increase access and utilization of well-child visits and immunization services

HRSA’s P4 Challenge invites applicants to propose and implement innovative approaches to increase access to and utilization of well-child visits and/or immunization services within primary care settings.

READ MORE.

Vaccinations and well-child visits help prevent outbreaks of childhood diseases. Recent CDC data show that fewer children got vaccines on time this year compared to last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The P4 Challenge invites applicants to propose and implement innovative approaches to increase access to and utilization of well-child visits and/or immunizations services within primary care settings.

Innovative approaches in Phase 1 should aim to increase a key pediatric health performance measure such as:

  • Number of well-child visits (number of visits/number of children in the target population)
  • Well-child visit disparities (comparing measures across two or more subpopulations)
  • Doses administered of specific vaccines; coverage of the primary pediatric vaccination series (for example, number of MMR vaccines given/number of children 12-18 months in the target population)
  • Disparities within the community on a specific immunization metric (comparing measure across two or more subpopulations)

In Phase 1 of the P4 Challenge, up to 50 applicants will receive $10,000 to deploy the proposed approach in Phase 2.

Request for Proposals: Pregnancy Prevention Program(s)

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health has engaged the MITRE Corporation to evaluate the replication of pregnancy prevention programs that have been proven effective through rigorous evaluation. As part of this evaluation, MITRE is seeking proposals for replicating school-based, after-school-based, or community-based pregnancy prevention programs that have been rigorously evaluated and proven effective to reduce teenage pregnancy, behavioral risk factors underlying teenage pregnancy, or other associated risk factors.

Organizations are requested to replicate a pregnancy prevention program(s) for adolescents proven effective through rigorous evaluation. In the context of this opportunity, replication includes service delivery and data collection for an evaluation.
