This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) State Partnership (SP) Program. The purpose of this program is to support demonstration projects for the expansion and improvement of emergency medical services for children who need treatment for trauma or critical care. This program will achieve these goals by expanding the uptake of Pediatric Readiness Guidelines in Emergency Departments;1 developing Pediatric Readiness in Emergency Medical Services Systems;2 increasing pediatric disaster readiness by supporting the integration of pediatrics in hospital and prehospital disaster plans; and prioritizing family partnership and leadership to improve EMSC systems of care. Consistent with these goals, this program aims to attain equitable access to pediatric emergency care and everyday readiness for all children across the nation, especially for those children living in racial/ethnic minority, tribal, and rural communities.

Who can apply

The EMSC SP Program, authorized by the Public Health Service Act, Title XIX, 1910 (42 U.S.C. 300w-9), allocates funds through competitive grants to state governments and accredited schools of medicine in States. One HRSA EMSC SP award will be made per state/jurisdiction applicant. Should HRSA receive more than one eligible application from a specific state/jurisdiction, the higher-scoring applicant will be funded.
