Justification for the Exception to Competition

The reason for this exception is to allow sufficient time for the HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) to align its fiscal resources and programmatic goals:

  • With the developing Maternal and Child Health Strategic Plan and with HRSA and Departmental plans; and,
  • With the Early Learning and Development Initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Education; and, to maintain during this transition period MCH programmatic support to the State and community MCH constituencies which currently are receiving technical assistance services from these MCHB grantees.

The activities listed in the previous paragraph will not be completed in time for the FY 2010 grant competition. The MCHB proposes, therefore, to extend into FY 2011 the project periods of those grants scheduled to conclude in FY 2010 in order to have a larger and more current grant competition in FY 2011 reflective of any and all programmatic changes resulting from the above referenced activities and actions. Delaying the competition into FY 2011 also allows the MCHB additional time to consult with and provide information to constituency groups about changes in program direction. Providing an extension with funds to these grantees through January 31, 2011, will ensure the provision of technical assistance to the affected MCH constituencies continues without disruption.
