The purpose of this program is to support the implementation of public education and outreach programs that show promise of increasing organ donation.
Specifically, this program supports the replication of strategies that have been identified through the research grant program of the Division
of Transplantation as effective in increasing donation or strategies identified in the public health literature as being effective in modifying health behavior.
The program also supports the implementation of public education and outreach efforts that are based on an established framework for successful public health outreach programs.
This grant program is supportive of the Division's mission to educate the public about deceased donation and to encourage individuals to document their decision to be a donor in their statewide donor registry or by some other mechanism where a registry is unavailable.
Projects may also increase knowledge of opportunities to donate specific organs or organ sections while living and the process, risks, and benefits of living donation.
