The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of fiscal year (FY) 2001 funds for a grant program to promote a hospital-based trauma support program at a level 1 trauma center delivered in a suburban community that is both culturally and economically diverse. This program addresses the “Healthy People 2010” focus area of Injury and Violence Prevention. The purpose of this program is to provide a continuum of support services including prevention messages to reduce morbidity and mortality to those who have suffered traumatic injuries.
B. Eligible Applicant
Assistance will be provided only to the Inova Fairfax Hospital. No other applications are solicited.
