The Autism Treatment Account Advisory Committee and the Utah Department of Health will issue a request for grant application (RFA) later this summer, after final publication of R398-15. The purpose of the RFA is to enter into contracts with qualified providers or organizations to provide services eligible under UCA 26-52 (http://le.utah.gov/UtahCode/section.jsp?code=26-52). It is anticipated that this RFA may result in multiple contracts. Eligible providers as identified in R398-15, will be invited to submit an application for consideration. Account monies may be used to provide a child who is at least two years of age but younger than six with an autism spectrum disorder with treatments that utilize applied behavior analysis and other proven effective treatments. All services provided will include at least:
Applied behavior analysis provided by or supervised by a board certified behavior analyst or a licensed psychologist with equivalent university training and supervised experience who is working toward board certification in applied behavior analysis;
Willingness to collaborate with existing Telehealth networks to reach children in rural and underserved areas of the state; and
Methods to engage family members in the treatment process.
A review committee will evaluate applications against weighted criteria. If you are a provider and wish to receive notice when the RFA is released, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
