Several HHS operating divisions support grant programs that facilitate the utilization of evidence-based approaches. SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grants, e.g., require State grantees and their subrecipients to identify their substance use-related problems and to develop and implement evidence-based programs, policies, and practices that have been proven effective in addressing these issues. AoA funds a grant program and public/private partnership to increase older people’s access to programs that have proven to be effective in reducing their risk of disease, disability, and injury. The partnership involves a variety of Federal agencies and private foundations that are coordinating their efforts to support the implementation of evidence-based disease prevention programs at the State and community levels.
In addition, the President’s Budget for FY 2008 requests $10 million in new funding under the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act to fund competitive grants. These grants will support the development of a statewide infrastructure to implement, monitor, and sustain high-quality, evidence-based nurse home visitation programs. Funds will be used to support and enhance collaboration and coordination across multiple State and private agencies that already receive Federal or State funding to implement various home visitation models. This new funding will be used for investments in cross-agency collaboration, program development, quality-assurance systems, training, technical assistance, workforce recruitment and retention, evaluation, and other administrative mechanisms needed to successfully implement and sustain high-quality, evidence-based home visitation programs that have strong fidelity to proven effective models.
These programs demonstrate how the results of research from HHS divisions, including NIH, CDC, and AHRQ, can be effectively translated into practice at the community level through service providers. HHS will continue its commitment to infuse evidence into practice through such discretionary programs.
