    2014 Community Grants RFP


    The March of Dimes is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Founded in 1938, the March of Dimes funds programs of research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies. In 2003, the March of Dimes launched a campaign to address the increasing rate of premature birth. As part of this campaign, the Louisiana Chapter Community Grants Program is designed to invest in priority projects that further the mission of the March of Dimes, support campaign objectives, and further our strategic goal of improving and promoting equity in birth outcomes.

    The March of Dimes Louisiana Chapter is seeking eligible and qualified nonprofit organizations to implement new programs or expand existing programs that address at least one of the following priority areas:

    1.    PRECONCEPTION HEALTH: Providing or enhancing preconception health education and/or services.  For more information, see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Preconception Health and Health Care resources for health professionals at: www.cdc.gov/preconception


    2.    Providing or enhancing premature birth risk reduction education and/or services.  Risk reduction projects include, but are not limited to:


    ·         SMOKING CESSATION: Providing smoking cessation education and/or services to pregnant women through the Baby & Me Tobacco Free Program.  For more information, go to the American Congress of Obstetrician and Gynecology website and the National Baby & Me Tobacco Free Program website and read the following article: http://www.acog.org/Resources_And_Publications/Committee_Opinions/Committee_on_Health_Care_for_Underserved_Women/Smoking_Cessation_During_Pregnany


    National Baby & Me Tobacco Free Program: http://babyandmetobaccofree.org/

    The “Baby & Me – Tobacco Free” model is an evidenced-based, incentive-based program utilizing the 5As counseling approach to assist pregnant women in quitting smoking and to help them stay tobacco-free after the birth of their baby. Baby & Me – Tobacco Free uses a unique approach, combining cessation support specific to pregnant women, offering practical incentives, targeting low-income women (the largest group of smokers during pregnancy), and monitoring success. The program’s design has proven to be highly effective in decreasing the number of women who smoke during and after pregnancy.


    3.    ENHANCED GROUP PRENATAL CARE: Enhancing care through the group prenatal care model (e.g. CenteringPregnancy®).  For all prospective CenteringPregnancy® programs, please complete the CenteringPregnancy® RFP.
