The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced its Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP), an opportunity designed to promote access to health care for children, youth and their families nationwide, and employ preventive health strategies through innovative community-based programs. The HTPCP award program was developed to support special projects of regional and/or national significance that demonstrate how State Title V programs, Medicaid and CHIP programs, local agencies, organizations, businesses, families, and communities can work together to improve the health status of children, youth, and their families.
Applicants 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. HRSA estimates granting eight awards of up to $50,000 per year for the five-year project period which begins March 1, 2017.
Applications are due August 2, 2016.
