What is the program?

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Advances in Integrating Genetics into Clinical Care (AIGCC) program. The purpose of this program is to serve as a national resource on the use of genetic and genomic information in clinical practice for genetic service providers, primary and specialty health care providers, and families. The program will accomplish this by implementing the priorities below:

  • Serve as a national resource for developing and disseminating evidence-based practices, policies, tools, and resources related to the genetics care delivery system in the United States.
  • Monitor, analyze, track, and report on national policy issues related to the genetics care service delivery system with a focus on finance and insurance coverage; genetics workforce; and emerging issues in the use of genetic testing and technologies.
  • Develop and sustain partnerships with relevant national organizations and key stakeholders.
  • Disseminate information on practices, policies, and resources related to the genetics care delivery system to states and stakeholders.
  • Support the Regional Genetics Networks (RGNs) (HRSA-020-046) recipients through technical assistance, training, education, and evaluation.
  • Coordinate with the Regional Genetics Networks on providing education and resources to primary and specialty health care providers on the use of genetic and genomic information in clinical care.
  • Coordinate with the National Genetics Education and Family Support Program (NGEFSP) (HRSA-20-049) to provide education to medically underserved populations about genetic conditions and services to improve knowledge of genetic conditions among children and families.


Are you eligible?

Any domestic public or private entity, including an Indian tribe or tribal organization (as those terms are defined at 25 U.S.C. 450b) is eligible to apply. See 42 CFR § 51a.3(a). Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations are eligible to apply for these funds.
An applicant may NOT apply for concurrent funding as the lead award recipient for this program and either the National Genetics Education and Family Support Program (HRSA-20-049) or the National Genetics Education and Family Support Program and a Regional Genetics Network (HRSA-20-046). If an applicant does apply for any two of these funding opportunities for fiscal year 2020, it will be considered non-responsive and both applications will be disqualified.
Foreign entities are not eligible for HRSA awards, unless the authorizing legislation specifically authorizes awards to foreign entities or the award is for research. This exception does not extend to research training awards or construction of research facilities
