The program supports the tracking of work-related injuries, illnesses, hazards or exposures. Occupational health surveillance includes population- and group- and case-based approaches and activities. Occupational surveillance data are used to: identify state priorities and guide efforts to improve and protect worker safety and health; monitor statistical and other trends and progress over time; and develop prevention intervention recommendations.
YouthBuild is a community-based alternative education program for youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are high school dropouts, adjudicated youths, youths aging out of foster care, youths with disabilities, migrant farmworker youths, and other disconnected youth populations.
Purpose: Each year, the program funds a different type of housing program. Last year’s competition funded programs providing access to safe, clean, physically accessible affordable housing units for families, individuals, the elderly, new Americans, veterans, the disabled, women and youth. The competition developed and maintained programs to educate and assist individuals in finding permanent or transitional housing opportunities meeting their needs. The 2019 topic will be unveiled in July.
The program supports efforts to ensure the nation’s immigration enforcement system is fair, humane and prioritizes the civil and human rights of those vulnerable to deportation. This year’s competition will support impact litigation efforts challenging immigration enforcement policies and practices that are inhumane, unjust and unlawful. In addition to support for impact litigation, the ILF will also support convenings, advocacy, organizing and communications related to impact litigation efforts.
The funding will support innovative and promising practices to move the aging network towards evidenced based practices that enhance the quality, effectiveness of nutrition services programs or outcomes within the aging services network.
The program supports research on child care policy questions of national and state relevance. Grantees are encouraged to include other local and state child care stakeholders. These projects are intended to add to ACF’s knowledge about the efficacy of child care subsidy policies and quality improvement initiatives.
The program supports treatment for and prevention of substance use disorder, including opioid abuse, in rural communities at the highest risk for substance use disorder. The overall goal is to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with opioid overdoses in high-risk rural communities by strengthening multi-sector consortiums.
The program supports networks to offer legal assistance to older Americans with economic and social need. The grantees will improve the quality, effectiveness, accessibility and availability of the full-range of legal assistance, from legal advice through representation to older adults.
The program will assist the National Syndromic Surveillance Program in improving its gathering of national self-inflicted injury data from the nation’s emergency departments. Currently, the system captures data from about 65% of all emergency department visits. The purpose is to support: (1) NSSP in building its infrastructure to improve data gathering; and (2) quarterly queries designed to identify self-harm cases at emergency departments.
The program supports a multi-site study on the human health effects of exposures to drinking water contaminated with PFAS. Study sites may include communities using PFAS-contaminated private residential wells or public water systems.
