LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for public and private non-profit organizations to provide Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) programming.
FASD describes a range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral and/or learning disabilities with possible lifelong implications. Learning and life skills impacted by prenatal alcohol exposure vary greatly among individuals, depending on the amount of exposure, the timing and pattern of exposure and the individual's current and past environment.
"Services needed for individuals affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and their family vary based on what parts of their brain have been affected, their age or level of maturation, the health or family dynamics and the overall environment in which they live," said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health for MDHHS. "This funding will help provide supports to individuals at risk or impacted by FASD so they can live their fullest lives."

The RFP seeks competitive plans for local projects that will identify persons who may be or are affected by FASD, deliver services and offer support to the state's population who are at risk or impacted by FASD. The target population for these proposals are children, youth and families or women of childbearing age who drink any amount of alcohol during their pregnancy. Proposals may also provide community education and training to increase awareness of FASD, improve identification of persons at risk of or impacted by FASD, increase the availability of services and support for individuals and the families of individuals impacted by FASD.
Funded applicants will receive ongoing technical assistance from the MDHHS project coordinator which include help with program start-up, reporting requirements and barriers to program implementation.
The first-year program period begins April 1, 2020 and ends Sept. 30, 2020. During the initial six-month award, MDHHS expects to award approximately $50,500 with varied award sizes based on the scope of the projects. Awards may be renewed annually through Sept. 30, 2022, with $101,000 in funding available each year.
