Grants to state, private, and public entities for programs that help to reduce the incidence of death and illness associated with respiratory disease. Funding is intended for outreach, medical, and educational services, as well as for benefits counseling. The primary goal of funding is to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with occupationally-related coal mine dust lung disease (CMDLD).

Applicants are expected to offer services to coal miners in their area, ensuring that all service areas receive a level of services commensurate with current efforts in those areas and that the quality and breadth of services delivered to coal miners is sustained.

For information about current BLCP Service Areas, see Page 7 of the Guidelines in Supporting Documents, below.

HRSA recognizes that not all of the additional guidelines to the minimum required services may be appropriate or feasible for applicants due to organizational, clinical, or environmental factors and the fluid nature of the target population. As a result, applicants may request up to two exemptions to the additional guidelines for their service area in a separate attachment. If HRSA staff determines that an applicant’s request is justified, the applicant will not penalized for adjusting the additional guideline from their project narrative.

For information about programmatic requirements, see Page 11 of the Guidelines in Supporting Documents, below.
