Request For Applications

What you need to know

​A competitive Request for Applications (RFA) to subward Title V MCH Block Grant is posted to DHHS Grants and Contract Opportunities, found under the Public Health heading.  The RFA provides information regarding eligibility to apply, the schedule of events, and the instructions and forms to submit an application.  The RFA also details the process to get answers to relevant questions about the RFA.  Should you have questions, DHHS staff can answer questions about competitive processes only as detailed in the RFA.

The release of an RFA announcement is the opportunity to apply for funding.  The RFA details who is eligible to apply, the MCH priority(ies), and target population.  It is a competitive process based on applicants with the best fit to the RFA. 

Individuals are not eligible to apply directly for grant funds.  Indirectly, individuals can engage with the organizations with the best fit to address the focus sought through the RFA.  Because priorities may change every five years (see Title V Needs Assessment), the RFA may seek special projects that are time-limited in nature, not ongoing programs.  Applicant organizations have programs or can refer you to service providers with direct assistance to individuals and families.

​The DHHS Grants and Contract Opportunities webpage displays all funding opportunity announcements.  You may Subscribe for Updates to be automatically notified when this and other funding opportunities are announced.
