The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is now accepting applications for the Evidence-Based Tele-Behavioral Health Network Program (EB-THNP). The two-fold purpose of this program is to use telehealth networks to increase access to behavioral health care services in rural and frontier communities and to conduct evaluations of those efforts to establish an evidence-base for assessing the effectiveness of tele-behavioral health care for patients, providers, and payers.

Traditional models of telehealth involve care delivered to a patient at an originating (or spoke) site from a specialist working at a distant (or hub) site. A telehealth network consists of a series of originating sites receiving services from a collaborating distant site. Telehealth modalities to be used to support clinical treatment may include video conferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications. The Evidence-Based Tele- Behavioral Health Network Program presents an opportunity to address two clinical priorities: mental health and substance abuse (particularly the opioid abuse epidemic). 

While the Evidence-Based Tele-Behavioral Health Network Program seeks to expand access to services for rural patients, its primary goal is to significantly contribute to the evidence base for assessing the effectiveness of tele-behavioral health care services for patients, providers, and payers. This will be accomplished through collaboration and systematic data collection by the awardees and analysis by HRSA’s Telehealth-Focused Rural Health Research Center recipient. By aggregating data from the entire cohort of awardees, researchers will have a sufficient sample size to conduct statistically sound analyses.

Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with other entities who receive HRSA funding for behavioral health care services, such as Federally Qualified Health Centers that received Access Increases in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (AIMS) supplemental funding. Applicants are also encouraged to collaborate with grantees of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) or other federal funding sources, to avoid duplication of effort and enhance the services that patients receive.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range up to $350,000 per year.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include domestic public or private, non-profit entities. Faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are eligible to apply.

Due Date: June 25, 2018

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is now accepting applications for the 2018 Sports Award recognizing sports teams, athletes, and community-based organizations that use sports to catalyze and sustain changes that will make communities healthier places to live, learn, work, and play.

The Foundation will consider applications in the following three categories:

•Category 1: A professional sports team community relations department or foundation based in the United States or Canada.

•Category 2: An individual athlete or professional coach's foundation based in the United States or Canada.

•Category 3: An organization in the United States or Canada that is an influential leader and model for improving community health through sports.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts of up to $10,000 are available.

Eligibility: Applicants that are not charitable organizations or public entities must apply with an organization that is such an entity and will receive the prize funds. Additional documentation may be requested. RWJF will not consider an application if it is submitted by an entity whose name, brand, or practices—in the Foundation’s judgment—denigrates, harms, or discriminates against any racial or ethnic group. For example, a team with a name or mascot that, in RWJF’s view, denigrates Native Americans will not be eligible for the award.

Due Date: July 2, 2018

The Administration for Community Living supports innovative and promising practices that move the aging network towards evidenced-based practices that enhance the quality and effectiveness of nutrition services programs or outcomes within the aging services network. Innovation can include service products that appeal to caregivers (such as web-based ordering systems and carryout food products), increased involvement of volunteers (such as retired chefs), consideration of eating habits and choice (such as variable meal times, salad bars, or more fresh fruits and vegetables), new service models (testing variations and hybrid strategies) and other innovations to better serve a generation of consumers whose needs and preferences are different.

Innovative and promising practices may include the testing and publishing of positive outcomes in which nutrition programs provide a meaningful role in support of the health and long-term care of older individuals. Outcomes should focus on methods to improve collaboration with local healthcare entities, decrease health care costs for a specific population or decrease the incidence of the need for institutionalization among older adults. Through this program, funds may be used to help develop and test additional models or to replicate models that have already been tested in other community - based settings.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $250,000 are available.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants under this program announcement include domestic public or private and non-profit entities including state, local and Indian tribal governments and organizations (American Indian/Alaskan Native/Native American), faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, hospitals and institutions of higher education. Applicants are expected to demonstrate extensive knowledge and present a proven track record of expertise concerning the nature of nutrition for older individuals and the business of nutrition program administration within the aging network.

Due Date: July 17, 2018
