Description: The Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD), Administration on Disabilities (AOD), Administration for Community Living (ACL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the availability of Fiscal Year 2019 funds to award, on a competitive basis, a three year National Training Initiative (NTI) cooperative agreement to University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDDs). AOD anticipates awarding one neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) training agreement to pay for the federal share of this initiative. Funds will be used to support the implementation of a NAS training program. HHS is committed to ending the crisis of opioid addiction and overdose in America. This training initiative is intended to identify, and train practitioners in, emerging knowledge and evidence-based practices in screening, monitoring and care for children diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), or suspected of being impacted by related trauma exposure. This proposed opportunity seeks to address the gaps in access and delivery of quality services to children diagnosed with NAS. The desired performance outcomes include: (1) Increased collaboration and coordination among federal, state and local entities addressing NAS. (2) Increase in trauma-informed care in prevention and treatment services for neonates, families and caregivers. Evaluation of the results will be collected from practioners, trainees, families, UCEDD network partners and governmental agencies via customer satisfaction survey data collected pre and post interventions.
