U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children ProgramDeadline: October 14, 2014
The Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) promotes maternal and child health in innovative community-based programs that improve access to care and reduce health care costs through health promotion, prevention, and early intervention. HTPCP projects must represent a new initiative within the community or an innovative component that builds on existing community resources. HTPCP grants:
- Support the development of community-based initiatives that plan and implement innovative and cost-effective approaches to promote community identified preventive child health and developmental objectives for vulnerable children and their families, especially those 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; and
- Build community and statewide partnerships among professionals in health, education, social services, government, including State Title V and Medicaid and CHIP programs, and business to achieve self-sustaining programs.
Topical areas of greatest interest for HTPCP funding include the following: early childhood development, school readiness, developmental/ behavioral pediatrics, medical home (including enhanced family and youth engagement), care coordination and case management, safe sleep, oral health, mental health, school-based health, and nutrition and physical activities to address overweight/obesity. HTPCP encourages the use of innovative health information technology to increase access to a wide variety of stakeholders in communities. HTPCP also encourages strategies to support outreach and enrollment efforts to assist families to access, understand and use health insurance, including accessing preventive care services.
