Alabama Cribs for Kids

CribAlabama has partnered with the national Cribs for Kids Program and is dedicated to "Helping every baby sleep safer." Funding from the federal Maternal and Child Health Services Title V Block Grant has allowed Alabama to purchase a limited number of play yards for families who meet qualifications and need a safe sleep environment for their infants under one year of age. These portable cribs are provided through referrals from partner agencies. The required forms are below.

The image on the right shows the portable cribs that we send to families. See here for an information sheet about the portable cribs that can be shared with families.

 Referring agencies can find the referral instructions here.

For initial referral, the following packet of 3 forms is required:

For follow-up with the family, after the cribs are received, these two short surveys are required:

  • 2-3 weeks after baby arrives home: Survey 1
  • 6-8 weeks after baby arrives home: Survey 2

To submit these forms and to ask any questions, please reach out to us at [email protected].
