Deadline: Aug. 2, 2016
"The purpose 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-based 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. Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) funding supports projects that provide clinical or public health services, 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 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; and
- 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. You are encouraged to propose projects in the following topical areas: 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."
