    CFDA Number: 93.110.
    Justification for the Exception to Competition: The former grantee,

due to financial difficulties and closure of facilities and programs. 
The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) has identified the

maintains an on-going partnership with the original grantee, the 
Southern Nevada Area Health Education Center; the original Project 
Director has a clinical appointment with the Department of Pediatrics; 
the Department of Pediatrics is maintaining the project despite not 
having access to grant funds; and obstetrical care for pregnant women 
occurs at a clinic jointly run by the Department of Pediatrics and the 
Department of Family and Community Medicine. Transferring funds to the 
Department of Pediatrics will not change the project as originally 
proposed and funded, as it still serves the intended target population, 
maintains partnerships with many of the community organizations 
discussed in the original application and proposes to enhance services 
with the addition of the Project Outreach Coordinator. In sum, the 
Department of Pediatrics has the capacity to provide an array of 
Healthy Tomorrows supported prevention and intervention services to the

    This grant transfer will ensure that prevention and intervention 
services remain available for approximately 100 African American, 
Hispanic, and/or American Indian pregnant women in Clark County and 
Southern Nevada and their children; launch a community-wide, bi-lingual 
program of culturally competent public education and awareness services 
to recruit and enroll at least 100 women into the Nevada Care Program; 
and maintain the Nevada Care Program Screening Clinic to monitor the 
health and development of infants born to pregnant women enrolled in 
the program. Not ensuring continued funding to provide these services 
would have a substantially negative impact on the healthcare needs of 
this population, while continued funding to the Department of 
Pediatrics will ensure that these critical services remain available to 
address the demonstrated needs of low-income, underserved women, 
children and adolescents in Clark County and Southern Nevada.
