The estimated total funds available (direct and indirect) for the first year (12-month budget period) will be $300,000 with an individual award ranging from $200,000 to $300,000 for the first year. The estimated total funds available (direct and indirect) for the entire project period will be $600,000.

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to gain a better understanding from the parents/guardians of young children about the factors contributing to vaccination coverage disparities observed between young children living below the poverty level and those living at or above the poverty level. These factors may include challenges accessing vaccination services, receiving lower quality vaccination services, Medicaid policy-related barriers, knowledge/attitudes/beliefs toward vaccination, and competing priorities.
