This opportunity will provide a single cooperative agreement for a Black Lung Data and Resource Center that will work with Black Lung Clinics Program (BLCP) grantees to strengthen their ability to examine and treat respiratory and pulmonary impairments in active and inactive coal miners.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Collecting, synthesizing, and analyzing federal data sources to understand the burden of black lung disease
  • Supporting federal partnerships and building collaboration among stakeholders
  • Soliciting and synthesizing BLCP feedback on their current operational processes
  • Partnering with HRSA to determine how BLCP award recipients can better capture clinical issues and emerging trends related to black lung disease through their patient-level data collection and analysis
  • Providing programmatic assistance, onsite and virtually as appropriate, for BLCP recipients to enhance operations, improve the quality and breadth of services BLCP recipients provide, and increase the number of U.S. coal miners served
  • Facilitating presentations, onsite and virtually, during program meetings and assist with public dissemination of programmatic information
  • Developing data privacy and sharing agreements and analyze and disseminate patient-level and aggregate data collected by black lung clinics

Any state, public, or private entity may apply.
