The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) released a new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program. The purpose of this program is to support community-based services aimed at improving the health status of children, adolescents, and families in rural and other underserved communities by increasing their access to health services. This program supports HRSA's goals to improve access to quality health care and services, build healthy communities, and improve health equity.
Deadline to apply: October 1, 2018
Community-based programs and evidence-based models of care that build on existing community resources will be implemented and evaluated to demonstrate program impact. This program supports collaboration between local pediatric providers and community leaders in an effort to provide quality health care and preventive health services to children, adolescents, and families in rural and other underserved communities.
HTPCP funding supports projects that provide clinical or public health services, and does not support 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.
Of particular interest are clinical and public health interventions in community-based settings in the following topical areas:
- Early child development/school readiness
- Medical home (including enhanced family and adolescents engagement)
- Care coordination and case management
- Oral health
- Substance use services (including the integration of substance use services for children and adolescents at-risk for or have substance use disorders (SUD), or assessing for substance use and SUD during pre-natal and well-child visits)
- Mental health
- School-based health
- Healthy weight promotion and physical activity
