This announcement solicits applications for two separate but related funding opportunities under the Black Lung/Coal Miner Clinics Program (BLCP):
the Black Lung Clinics Grant Program (BLCGP) and the Black Lung Centers of Excellence (BLCE).
HRSA/ORHP supports projects that seek to reduce
the morbidity and mortality associated with occupationally-related coal mine dust lung disease.
This is accomplished through two strategies:
the provision of direct services and strengthening the public health infrastructure to ensure the safety and health of the nation's coal miners.
The latter includes not only providing technical assistance to entities providing direct services, but also strengthening the capacity and the knowledge base of the larger medical community and the public.
