Limited Submission Announcements
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2019 for the Transforming Health Care for Children and Youth with Epilepsy (CYE) Program. The purpose of this program is to increase access to coordinated, quality health care in a patient/family-centered medical home for CYE residing in rural and/or medically under-served areas. This will be accomplished by supporting quality improvement (QI) networks to address four content areas: 
(1) increasing access to specialists through telehealth and telemedicine strategies; 
(2) increasing family engagement at various levels across the health care system; 
(3) improving the transition from pediatric to adult health care; and 
(4) increasing communication, collaboration, and co-management between primary care providers and epilepsy specialty providers. 
Institutional Limit: 1 Proposal
Internal Deadline: February 4, 2019, 4:45pm
This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Innovations in Care Coordination for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Other Developmental Disabilities (DD) Program.

1) Family Navigation - Increasing family navigation services to improve communication between families and primary and specialty providers; link children with/at risk for ASD/DD to diagnostic evaluations, ASD/DD services, and community resources; and provide education to families of children with/at risk for ASD/DD to improve self-efficacy in navigating the system of care for children with/at risk for ASD/DD; and 
2) Provider Training - Providing education, training, and technical assistance to providers, and community based-organizations providing services to ASD/DD on improving care for children with/at risk for ASD/DD through a learning community.

This program encourages reciprocity and cultural exchange throughout the world. Recipients may use funds to pursue activity abroad or to host international colleagues within the U.S. to pursue unrestricted travel and projects by professionals working in all aspects of theatre. 

The program offers grants through two separate initiatives: 

1. Global Connections - On the Road: This initiative offers grants to foster new relationships with international colleagues that will inspire each other's work and aesthetics by creating opportunities for cultural exchange. This initiative is open to a broad range of theatre professionals from artists to administrators to thosein production areas. 

2. Global Connections - In the Lab: This initiative offers grants to further pre-existing international collaborations by supporting residencies that either advance the research and development of a theatre piece or explore elements leading up to a full production. Projects do not need to result in a final mainstage production.
