Poison Center Network Service Area Competition

This announcement solicits applications for the Poison Center Network Grant Program’s SAC covering the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.  The Poison Center Network Program will provide assistance to a qualified poison control center(s) (PCC(s)) eligible for funds under section 1273 of the Public Health


Service Act, (42 U.S.C.

300d-73), as amended by the Poison Center Network Act of 2014 to prepare FY 2017 applications for these federal funds.  This grant is administered by the Poison Control Program (PCP), Healthcare Systems Bureau (HSB), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

This FOA details the SAC eligibility requirements, review criteria, and awarding factors for PCCs seeking a grant for operational support to provide poison center services to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.  The grant is to support PCC efforts to 1) prevent, and provide treatment recommendations for, poisonings; 2) comply with operational requirements needed to sustain accreditation and or achieve accreditation; and/or 3) improve and enhance communications and response capability and capacity.  Funds may also be used to improve the quality of data uploaded from poison centers to the National Poison Data System (NPDS) in support of national toxicosurveillance activities conducted by the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  However, improvement of data quality for the purposes of national surveillance is not a requirement of this grant.

Projects funded under this program must include an evaluation component; however, a rigorous scientific evaluation is not required.  Proposed projects/activities must incorporate mechanisms to measure and assess progress in achieving key project milestones directly tied to the project’s objectives.

Please note that in the event the Puerto Rico Poison Control Center becomes accredited by June 30, 2017, this award will not be made.
