Funding News and Grant Tips

Survey Finds Millennials Support Causes, Not Institutions
Millennials -— young men and women born between 1979 and 1994 —- passionately support causes rather than the institutions working to address them; are highly selective about which organizations to follow on social media; and value the intrinsic benefits of volunteering such as networking and gaining professional expertise, a new report from Achieve and the Case Foundation finds.
Based on survey responses from more than twenty-six hundred individuals, the report, 2013 Millennial Impact Report (http://cdn.trustedpartner.com/docs/library/AchieveMCON2013/Research%20Report/Millennial%20Impact%20Research.pdf), found that 73 percent of millennials volunteered for a nonprofit organization in 2012. When asked about their motivations, 79 percent said they were passionate about the cause or issue, 67 percent felt they could make a difference for a cause they cared about, and 56 percent wanted to connect and network with like-minded people. The survey also found that in a crowded and noisy media landscape, 49 percent of millennials actively follow one to five nonprofits on social media, 80 percent like it best when nonprofits have mobile-friendly Web sites, and 59 percent like receiving news or action-oriented updates with links to more information and next steps.
Now in its fourth year, the annual survey also found that 84 percent of millennials prefer to give online and are most likely to donate when they feel inspired by the organization (69 percent) or when the organization provides specific examples of the impact the donation will have on its work (49 percent). And while millennials in general are not yet in a position to give large amounts, more than eight in ten (83 percent) made a donation in 2012, while 52 percent said they would consider signing up for a monthly giving program.

Abstinence-Only Grants Available
* Program: Competitive Abstinence Education Grant Program (CFDA 93.060).
* Agency: Admin. for Children & Families, HHS.
* Eligibility: Governments, public and private colleges and universities, school districts, nonprofits.
* Funding: $4.1 million for nine awards ranging from $200,000 to $800,000 each.
* Deadline: Aug. 29.
The Basics: Grantees use funds to develop abstinence education programs aimed at reducing teen pregnancies. The focus is on adolescent youth who are at greatest risk of sexually transmitted diseases and bearing children out of wedlock. Programs must promote the social, psychological and health gains associated with delaying sexual activity and promoting healthy relationships.
Tips: Most grants go to private nonprofits; it's one of the few programs which awards a significant portion of funding to religious organizations.
The group Abstinence Works is a good source of information about projects funded through this program, as well as other resources (go to http://www.abstinenceworks.org).

SOURCE: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 8/16/13.
$ AVAILABLE: Three awards up to $250,000 each.
ELIGIBILITY: The MAI-TCE program targets comprehensive service approaches in the 11 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and Metropolitan Divisions (MDs) most impacted by HIV/AIDS. MAI-TCE grantees funded under RFA #SM-11-006 are currently providing screening and referral to treatment for those who require care or preventive interventions for HIV and substance use and mental disorders. These grantees include: Texas Department of State Health Services; Florida State Dept. of Health; Puerto Rico Dept. of Health; City of Philadelphia Public Health Dept.; San Francisco Dept. of Public Health; New York City Health/Mental Hygiene; Chicago Dept. of Public Health; Los Angeles County Office of AIDS Programs & Policies; Maryland State Dept. of Health/Mental Hygiene; D.C. Dept. of Health; and Georgia State Dept. of Public Health. SAMHSA believes it is most cost effective and efficient to supplement and build upon the infrastructure, partnerships and services already established through the MAI-TCE program in these 11 MSAs/MDs to achieve the goals and objectives of these supplements within the one-year grant period.
PURPOSE: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) announces the availability of funds to expand and/or enhance grant activities funded under the Minority AIDS Initiative Targeted Capacity Expansion (MAI-TCE): Integrated Behavioral Health/Primary Care Network Cooperative Agreements (RFA # SM-11-006) grant announcement. This supplemental funding opportunity is jointly funded by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, and the Center for Mental Health Services.
The purpose of the current MAI-TCE program has been to facilitate the development and expansion of culturally competent and effective integrated behavioral health and primary care networks, which include HIV services and medical treatment, within racial and ethnic minority communities in the 11 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and Metropolitan Divisions (MDs) most impacted by HIV/AIDS. The supplemental funding for this announcement will be used to expand behavioral health services specifically into specialized HIV treatment services programs.

Methodologies and Formative Work for Combination HIV Prevention Approaches (R01): RFA-MH-14-180
SOURCE: National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Letter of Intent: 8/3/13. Application: 9/3/13 by 5 pm local time of applicant organization.
$ AVAILABLE: The NIMH intends to commit approximately $1.5 million in FY 2014 to fund six to eight awards for this FOA and the companion FOAs.
The NIAID intends to commit approximately $700,000 in FY 2014 towards this FOA.
ELIGIBILITY: Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education, nonprofits with and without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education), small businesses, for-profit organizations (other than small businesses), state governments, U.S. territories or possessions, Indian/Native American tribal government (federally recognized and other than federally recognized), Indian/Native American tribally designated organizations, non-domestic (non-U.S.) entities, Hispanic-serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), Alaska native and native Hawaiian serving institutions, regional organizations, eligible agencies of the federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
PURPOSE: This FOA invites applications to advance science that is needed for optimal HIV combination prevention intervention approaches. Recent advances in biomedical interventions with critical behavioral aspects (e.g., Pre-exposure Prophylaxis [PrEP], Treatment as Prevention) have changed how HIV prevention and treatment are conceptualized. Significant local, city, state, and federally funded efforts are shifting towards community-level interventions to reduce HIV incidence, and these efforts are informed by recent advances regarding: the importance of treatment uptake and retention in care; the effectiveness of combined behavioral and biomedical interventions; and the need to implement interventions community-wide for optimal public health impact. Reductions in HIV incidence will only be achieved through implementation of combinations of interventions that include biomedical and behavioral interventions, as well as components that address social, economic, and other structural factors that influence HIV prevention and transmission. However, combined prevention intervention approaches rely on synergies of multiple elements that can be challenging to design, implement, and evaluate. This initiative will support methodological, formative, and implementation research designed to better understand the processes and outcomes of combination intervention efforts and that will enhance the implementation of these interventions.

Child Medical Record Design Competition
SOURCE: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 10/31/13.
$ AVAILABLE: The winning entry will receive $50,000. In addition, $20,000 each will be awarded to the top entries for three additional categories, including ease of adding new information to the card, visualization of data, and retroactive data entry. Finally, the foundation may also recognize up to five additional entries with "honorable mention" payments of $10,000.
ELIGIBILITY: The contest is open to all individuals from all sectors (for-profits, nongovernmental organizations, governments, universities, etc.) and all levels of expertise (students, professors, frontline workers, CEOs, etc.). Submissions can come from individuals or teams of individuals.
PURPOSE: Accurate and accessible records are needed to maintain accurate health histories for children, and to identify those who need to be immunized as well as those who have missed immunizations or are off schedule. When the record is unclear, inaccessible, or unused, it's harder to reach children with life-saving vaccines.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is inviting submissions to the Records for Life contest, a competition to redesign the look and feel of child health records in an effort to increase accuracy and make medical records easier to interpret and use.
For consideration, submissions must improve the child health record, strengthen information systems, and/or empower health workers and families to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases and ultimately save lives.
