Subject: Child Welfare, Health, Youth Development, Community Development | Deadline: Oct. 14, 2014
"The goal of this program is to promote access to health care for children, youth and their families nationwide, and employ preventive health strategies through innovative community driven programs. This program supports HRSA's goals to improve access to quality health care and services, to build healthy communities, and to improve health equity. HTPCP funding supports direct service projects, not research projects. 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 grants:
- 1) 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;
- 2) foster/promote collaboration among community organizations, individuals, agencies, businesses, and families;
- 3) involve pediatricians and other pediatric primary care providers (family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants) in community-based service programs; and
- 4) 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."
