CDC?s Procurement and Grants Office has published a program announcement entitled, ?Interventions for Individuals with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: Transitioning Science for community Projects?. $1,500,000 [this amount is an estimate, and subject to the availability of funds] will be available in fiscal year 2005 to fund approximately five awards. The purpose of the program is to: implement the continuation of a directive within the children?s Health Act of 2000 to develop and scientifically evaluate interventions for children and adolescents affected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) or other conditions resulting from prenatal alcohol exposure and their families. Interventions were developed to: (1) improve developmental outcomes, (2) prevent secondary conditions, and (3) provide education and support to caregivers and families. The primary objective of this program is to translate successful promising scientifically evaluated interventions for children with FAS to community settings.
