A. Information for Applicants
1. Background Information
The Pennsylvania Department of Health (Department) is responsible for administering the
Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Services Block Grant for Pennsylvania. The Title
V Block Grant program was established as part of the 1935 Social Security Act and is
administered at the Federal level by the Health Resources and Services Administration
(HRSA). The mission of the Title V Block Grant is to improve the health and well-being of
the nation’s mothers, infants, children and youth, including youth with special health care
needs and their families.
In 2015, HRSA defined six population domains: Women/Maternal Health, Perinatal/Infant
Health, Child Health, Children with Special Health Care Needs, Adolescent Health, and
Cross-cutting/Life Course. In addition, HRSA has increased emphasis on measuring
performance and incorporating evidence-based strategies and measures into program
planning. HRSA has identified over 20 National Performance Measures (NPMs) that will be
reported on by each state. The Department is required to focus programming on eight of the
15 NPMs, at least one for each population domain. For those priorities without a related
NPM, the Department will track programming progress with a State Performance Measure
(SPM). As a result of the Title V Block Grant transformation, the Department is responsible
for creating a State Action Plan to demonstrate the logical relationships between chosen
priorities, performance measures, and programming strategies.
The work for this RFA will be a strategy within the Adolescent Health domain and will
address the following priority: protective factors are established for adolescents and young
adults prior to and during critical life stages. Programs resulting from this RFA will enhance
positive behaviors, personal strengths, and interpersonal relationships for lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer (LGBTQ) youth. Applicants will achieve these
changes in targeted behavior through the implementation of evidence-based or evidence-
informed behavioral health programming focused on improving mental health, reducing
substance use, or providing suicide prevention education for LGBTQ youth ages 12-21 in
Pennsylvania.
LBGTQ youth experience a high rate of health disparities compared to their heterosexual
peers. They are “two times as likely to be bullied, excluded or assaulted at school. And
they’re nearly 40 percent less likely to have an adult in their family to whom they can turn.”1
Increasing protective factors, including family and community support and easy access to
health care for LGBTQ youth, can help to decrease the risk for behavioral health concerns
including depression, anxiety, substance use and suicidal thoughts and behavior.
