How to apply...
Application forms are both available from and submitted to the Grants Management Branch, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2920 Brandywine Road, Room 3000, Atlanta, GA 30341. Standard application forms, as furnished by CDC and required by 45 CFR 92 must be used for this program. This program is subject to the provisions set forth in 45 CFR 92 for State and local governments.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Approved grants are funded based on a priority score ranking from an objective review process coordinated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC will give funding preference to state programs with significant estimated numbers of children with elevated blood lead levels that direct federal funds to localities with high concentrations of children at risk for childhood lead poisoning. CDC will also give funding preference to the five local jurisdictions with the highest estimated number of children with elevated blood lead levels. Awards are made based on availability of funds and other significant factors as deemed necessary and appropriate by the agency. Funds are awarded for a one-year (12 month period). A Notice of Grant Award (Form PHS 5161-1) is provided which indicates the current award as well as support recommendations for the remainder of the project period (up to three years). The Notice of Grant Award indicates allocations for Federal funds by budget categories and any special conditions, if applicable.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
