Poison Center Network

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Poison Center Network Grant Program and provides guidance to qualified poison control centers (PCCs) on preparing and submitting FY 2019 applications for these federal funds.

These grants are administered by the Poison Control


Program in the Healthcare System Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The purpose of the 5-year program is to support PCCs’ activities to:
1) prevent and provide treatment recommendations for poisonings; 2) comply with operational requirements needed to sustain accreditation and/or achieve accreditation; 3) improve and enhance communications and response capability and capacity; and 4) develop strategies to ensure collection of quality data that is consistent and accurate to report on HRSA funded activities.

Accordingly, the grantee should consider developing a plan to improve data quality.

While not required, funds may also be used to improve the quality of data uploaded from PCCs to the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ National Poison Data System (NPDS) in support of national toxicosurveillance activities conducted by the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Projects funded under this program must include an evaluation component.

Proposed evaluation activities must measure and assess progress in achieving key project milestones directly tied to the project’s objectives.
