Intended Recipient of the Award: Georgetown University.

Justification for Non-Competitive Supplemental Funding
The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Library at Georgetown University serves as a national information and education resource library to help meet the changing needs of professionals, families with children, and the general public in the field of maternal and child health. The overall goal is to use information science and information technology to identify, collect, and organize information from the MCH field that is not readily available from other information sources and to make the information available for application by the MCH community in a timely, easy-to-access manner.
Due to an unanticipated delay in the issuance of the funding opportunity announcement for this grant program, the award of non-competitive funding for the period January 1, 2010, to March 31, 2010, to Georgetown University is necessary. In early fiscal year 2010, an open competition will take place for this grant program. The award of non-competitive supplemental funding for Georgetown University will enable the MCH Library to continue to provide this important service to MCH professionals and members of the public without disruption or delays until the results of the competition are known and a new award can be issued.Start Further Info
