    Helping moms and babies in Alabama

    The March of Dimes Alabama Markets have one goal: to help babies start life in the healthiest way possible. Our programs help moms-to-be learn how to take care of themselves before, during, and after their pregnancy.

    We are there when things don’t go as planned, providing comfort and information to families when a baby is born too soon.

    Alabama Markets partner with local and statewide medical groups and organizations on  projects aimed at improving the health of moms and babies. We also provide grants to organizations working to meet maternal and child health needs across the state.

    Grants and awards are given to projects that address the most urgent needs of moms and babies. Grants are generally awarded for one to three years and range from $5,000 to $25,000.

    Alabama Markets use gifts wisely. The state community grants program is designed to invest in priority
    projects that further the March of Dimes mission, support national and state objectives, and further our strategic
    goal of reducing disparities in birth outcomes. We award grants based on a number of criteria, including the group or organization’s ability to accomplish its goals, as well as the potential impact a project will have in helping us prevent premature births, birth defects and infant mortality. Proposals will be accepted from organizations focusing on one of the following priorities:

      • Providing or enhancing premature birth risk reduction education and/or services.  Risk reduction projects are limited to:
        • Providing smoking cessation education and/or services to pregnant women.  Preference should be given to prenatal health education and information/referral services that utilize evidence-based counseling approaches. 
        • Implementing home visiting programs (i.e. Nurse Family Partnership®). 
      • Providing or enhancing education and/or services for populations at greatest risk for preterm birth.
      • Enhancing health education and information/referral services that aim to reduce racial/ethnic disparities in preterm birth.
      • Implementing community programs that aim to promote equity in birth outcomes.  This may include March of Dimes programs like Stork’s Nest®1, Project Alpha, Becoming a Mom/Comenzando bien®, and The Coming of the Blessing®.
      • Supporting a quality improvement program related to premature birth prevention with the goal of catalyzing systems change (Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait).  

    In order to be eligible to receive a March of Dimes community grant, an organization must be an incorporated not-for-profit 501(c)(3) or for profit organization or government agency. The March of Dimes does not award grants to individuals. Applicants must disclose any conflict of interest due to representation by their organization on the chapter's Program Services Committee (PSC).

    The Alabama Markets currently have several funding opportunities available for the remainder of 2016.   The 2017 Community Grant RFP will be posted on or before September 2016.
