Funding News and Grant Tips

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Updates Poverty Guidelines for 2014
Section 673(2) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1981 (42 U.S.C. 9902(2)) requires the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to update the poverty guidelines at least annually, adjusting them on the basis of the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI–U).
The poverty guidelines are used as an eligibility criterion by the Community Services Block Grant program and a number of other Federal programs. The poverty guidelines issued here are a simplified version of the poverty thresholds that the Census Bureau uses to prepare its estimates of the number of individuals and families in poverty.
As required by law, this update is accomplished by increasing the latest published Census Bureau poverty thresholds by the relevant percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI–U). The guidelines in this 2014 notice reflect the 1.5 percent price increase between calendar years 2012 and 2013. After this inflation adjustment, the guidelines are rounded and adjusted to standardize the differences between family sizes. The same calculation procedure was used this year as in previous years. (Note that these 2014 guidelines are roughly equal to the poverty thresholds for calendar year 2013 which the Census Bureau expects to publish in final form in September 2014.)
The poverty guidelines continue to be derived from the Census Bureau’s current official poverty thresholds; they are not derived from the Census Bureau’s new Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM).
The following guideline figures represent annual income.

Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge for Development Seeks Proposals for Round Four Funding
SOURCE: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, United States Agency for International Development, the Government of Norway, Britain’s Department for International Development
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 3/27/14.
$ AVAILABLE: SLB will provide seed grants of up to $250,000 for up to two years and transition-to-scale grants of up to $2 million for up to four years. Seed funds are meant to support the development and validation of ideas capable of impacting health outcomes for pregnant women and their babies in low-resource settings. Transition-to-scale grants are designed to support the development, refinement, and rigorous testing of the impact of integrated solutions that have previously measured promising health outcomes in a controlled or limited setting and have the potential to credibly scale to improve the lives of millions of pregnant women and newborns in multiple countries.
In addition to funding, awardees will receive support and networking assistance from each of the partners, engage with other innovators, and participate in high-level meetings, including the Gates Foundation’s annual Grand Challenge meetings.
ELIGIBILITY: Proposals are encouraged from all types of organizations, including foreign and domestic for-profit companies, nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, foundations, academic institutions, civic groups, regional organizations, and public international organizations.
PURPOSE: Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge for Development, a joint initiative of the United States Agency for International Development, the government of Norway, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, and Britain’s Department for International Development, is seeking proposals for groundbreaking prevention and treatment approaches aimed at assisting women and their newborns in poor, hard-to-reach communities around the globe.
Through this fourth round of funding, the program will support interventions that increase access to primary health care for women and newborns by at least 50 percent, substantially improve the quality of care as measured by health outcomes, and lead to improved and sustained healthy behavior.
The program seeks ideas that can leapfrog conventional approaches in three main domains -- technology, service delivery, and “demand side” innovation -- and empower pregnant women and their families to practice healthy behaviors and access healthcare during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early postnatal period, especially the first two days after birth. Solutions should be "off the beaten track," daring in premise, and clearly differentiated from standard practice; enhance uptake and acceptability and provide for sustained use; enable or provide for low-cost solutions; have a strong likelihood of achieving a substantial impact on one or more important adverse maternal, fetal, or neonatal health conditions; be scalable in resource-poor settings; and be able to be monitored, measured, and evaluated. SLB encourages partnerships that bring together diverse expertise from non-traditional partners.
