Grant Opp: Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP)

23 08 2012

Application Due Date: September 21, 2012

The purpose of the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPC) is to increase the number of innovative community initiated programs that promote access to health care for children, youth and their families nationwide, and employ preventive health strategies. This program most closely supports HRSA’s goals to improve access to quality health care and services, to build healthy communities, and to improve health equity. HTPC funding supports direct service projects, not research projects.

Grantees are required to leverage their federal award of $50,000 per year in years two through five (Years 2-5) with $100,000 from non-federal sources. The match requirement has encouraged grantees to form effective partnerships with State Title V, foundations, school systems, universities, and local businesses. State Title V staff members, AAP local chapter representatives, community partners and local funders are invited to participate in every Healthy Tomorrows technical assistance visit conducted with grantees in year two (2) of their five year project periods.

It is anticipated that HTPC grants will be awarded to approximately eight (8) recipients. The intent of HTPC grants are: 1) to support the development of family-centered, community-based initiatives that plan and implement innovative and cost-effective approaches for focusing resources to promote community defined 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 health professionals in community-based service programs; and 4) build community and statewide partnerships among professionals in health, education, social services, government, and business to achieve self-sustaining programs. HTPC encourages the use of innovative health information technology to increase access to a wide variety of stakeholders in communities.
