U.S. Department for Health and Human Services: Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children ProgramDeadline: August 2, 2016
The purpose of the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) is to increase the number of innovative community-initiated programs that promote access to health care for children, youth, and their families nationwide, and employ preventive health strategies. This program most closely supports HRSA’s goals to improve access to quality health care and services, to build healthy communities, and to improve health equity.
HTPCP applications must represent either a new initiative (i.e., project that was not previously in existence) within the community or an innovative new component that builds upon an existing community-based program or initiative. HTPCP awards:
- Support the development of community-based initiatives that plan, implement, and evaluate innovative and cost-effective approaches to promote identified preventive child health and developmental objectives for vulnerable children and their families, especially those children and families with limited access to quality health services.
- Foster/promote collaboration among community organizations, individuals, agencies, businesses, and families.
- Involve pediatricians and other pediatric primary care providers (family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants) in community-based service programs.
- Build community and statewide partnerships among professionals in health, education, social services, government, including State Title V, Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs, and business to achieve self-sustaining programs.
Applicants are encouraged to propose projects in the following fields: early childhood development, school readiness, developmental/behavioral pediatrics, medical home (including enhanced family and youth engagement), care coordination and case management, oral health, behavioral health, mental health, school-based health, and nutrition and physical activities to promote healthy weight. HTPCP encourages the use of innovative health information technology to increase access to a wide variety of stakeholders in communities. HTPCP also supports innovative strategies to support outreach and enrollment efforts to assist families to access, understand and use health insurance, including accessing preventive care services.
Amount: $400,000 is available for up to eight grants of $50,000 each year for 5 years.
Eligibility: Any public or private entity, including an Indian tribe or tribal organization and faith-based and community organizations.
