    Request for Grant Proposals

    The New Mexico Chapter is requesting grant proposals for 2014.  Proposals are due on November 14th by 4:00 PM for projects that will provide or enhance premature birth risk education and/or services.  Specifically, we are requesting proposals that will FOCUS on the following areas:

    1. 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:

    ·         Providing smoking cessation education and/or services to pregnant women. Preference

    should be given to prenatal health education and information/referral services that utilize

    the "5 A's" counseling approach. For more information, go to the American Congress of

    Obstetrician and Gynecology website and read the following article:

    http://www.acog.org/Resources_And_Publications/Committee_Opinions/Committee_on_H

    ealth_Care_for_Underserved_Women/Smoking_Cessation_During_Pregnancy.

     

     Increasing health education and information/referral services available to pregnant women who use alcohol or other drugs.

     Focusing on premature birth recurrence prevention such as education about “17P” (17α hydroxyprogesterone caproate) treatment for women who have had a previous singleton premature 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®.

     Increasing pregnant women’s participation in state or local maternal child health programs (e.g. Medicaid, CHIP, WIC) through enhanced outreach, education and public awareness.

     Implementing home visiting programs (i.e. Early Head Start-Home Visiting, Early Intervention Program for Adolescent Mothers, Healthy Families America (HFA), Nurse Family Partnership®).

     Enhancing services for pregnant women with chronic diseases that increase the risk of premature birth such as diabetes and hypothyroidism.

     

    3. Enhancing care through the group prenatal care model

     

    4. Supporting a quality improvement program related to premature birth prevention with the goal ofcatalyzing systems change.

     

    5. Providing education regarding fertility treatments (i.e. ovarian stimulation, assisted reproductive technology) and the associated risks of multiple births and prematurity, and ways to potentially reduce those risks.

     

    6. Enhance the availability, quality, awareness of and utilization of genetics services and other patient services, including newborn screening, to strengthen care and prevention of birth defects.

     

    7. Increasing education related to reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in high-risk communities, consistent with the 2011 policy statement provided by the American Academy of

    Pediatrics: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2011/10/12/peds.2011- 2284.full.pdf+html.
