Grant to a USA public, private, or state entity to improve health outcomes for patients with respiratory disease. Funding is intended to better collect and analyze patient data, enhance clinic operations, and improve services provided by the grant recipient. The goal of the program is to improve the ability to examine and treat respiratory diseases and pulmonary impairments in active and inactive U.S. coal miners, which will be achieved through the provision of programmatic assistance and resources, and to better understand the health status and needs of active and inactive U.S. coal miners through data analysis.

The Black Lung Data and Resource Center (BLDRC) will work with Black Lung Clinics Program (BLCP) recipients and stakeholders to address long-standing challenges and barriers to medical, outreach, educational, and benefits counseling services for U.S. coal miners. The BLDRC will also assist with the collection and analysis of information on the demographics and clinical status of coal miners with Coal Mine Dust Lung Diseases (CMDLD), or black lung diseases, especially Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis (CWP) and its most severe form, Progressive Massive Fibrosis (PMF).

HRSA program involvement will include:

  • Working with the recipient to synthesize feedback from BLCP recipients on their current operational processes such as funding and reimbursement programs, DOL timeliness and National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) certifications, staff recruitment and retention, telehealth or telemedicine; medical, outreach, educational, and benefits counseling services provided to U.S. coal miners; and patient-level data collection systems to determine areas of programmatic assistance needed;
  • Facilitating communication with BLCP recipients to implement programmatic assistance to enhance operations, improve the quality and breadth of services BLCP recipients provide, and increase the number of U.S. coal miners served;
  • Facilitating collaboration with key federal partners, including DOL and NIOSH, to determine how BLCP recipients can better capture clinical issues and emerging trends related to black lung disease through data collection and analysis;
  • Incorporating the data recommendations and analysis into relevant Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and HRSA programs, in addition to the BLCP;
  • Reviewing project information prior to deliverable completion; and
  • Disseminating deliverables to key stakeholders within and outside the black lung community.

HRSA will provide funding in the form of a cooperative agreement. A cooperative agreement is a financial assistance mechanism where substantial involvement is anticipated between HRSA and the recipient during performance of the contemplated project. For information regarding the cooperative agreement recipient's responsibilities, see Page 6 of the Guidelines in Attached Files, below.
