A Birth Defects Branch, NCBDDD, CDC new FY 19 Notice Of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was published on 2/15/2019. NOFO #CDC-RFA-DD19-1902: Surveillance of Congenital Heart Defects Among Children, Adolescents, and Adults will replace the current NOFO #CDC-RFA-DD15-1506. Below are the synopsis, timeline, estimated number of awards, and estimated funding per year.
Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) #CDC-RFA-DD19-1902 solicits non-research, cooperative agreement applications to develop accurate and complete, population-based surveillance of congenital heart defects (CHDs) among children, adolescents, and adults. In FY19, CDC plans to fund 4-10 recipients for a five-year period of performance to develop surveillance of individuals aged 1-45 years with CHDs in order to examine descriptive epidemiology, survival, healthcare utilization, comorbidities, and other outcomes over time (Component A). CDC also plans to fund 1-3 recipients for a three-year project to validate billing codes (e.g. ICD-9-CM, ICD-10) for CHDs in healthcare claims data, and determine best ways to use healthcare claims data for surveillance of CHDs across the lifespan (Component B). Improved understanding of the public health significance of CHDs may inform development of strategies directed at decreasing mortality and improving the health of children, adolescents, and adults with CHDs. Measurable outcomes of the program will be in alignment with the following performance goal for the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD): 1) Enhance the quality and utility of birth defects surveillance systems.
