SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended Recipient of the Award: The American Academy of Pediatrics. Amount of the Non-Competitive Award: $300,000. CFDA Number: 93.110. Current Project Period: July 01, 2008– June 30, 2018. Period of Supplemental Funding: July 1, 2015–June 30, 2016. Authority: Social Security Act, Title V, sections 501(a)(1)(D) and 501(a)(2), (42 U.S.C. 701). Justification: The White House Rural Council is leading a Rural Child Poverty Initiative, the Rural IMPACT Project, to support improved well-being and upward economic mobility of children in rural and tribal communities. In collaboration with the White House Rural Council, HRSA, and the Administration for Children and Families, each using its own authority, used fiscal year (FY) 2015 funds to support a cohort of 10 rural and Tribal communities to provide two-generation, bundled services to children and families in need. Utilizing the twogeneration approach, the communities will promote problem solving at the community level by encouraging PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46993 pediatric clinicians’ participation and public-private partnership, such as the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Initiative, Project Launch, and private sector support for improved collaboration and coordination of and access to mental, oral, and physical health and non-clinical resources (e.g. home visiting, early care and education settings such as child care and Head Start, early intervention, child welfare, education) at the community level for children, youth, and their families. In 2013, following objective review of its application, HRSA awarded to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) cooperative agreement funding for the NCMHI. If approved, this would be the first project expansion supplement for this project. Through the NCMHI, the AAP is working to link key state and community programs, such as Title V, school-based health centers, Head Start, and Early Intervention, which are critical, natural access points for building and strengthening integrated service delivery systems for women, children, and their families. Working with the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program grantees and the AAP Council on Community Pediatrics Rural Health Special Interest Group, the NCMHI supports activities that promote access to quality, patient/family-centered and culturally effective services for children, youth and their families, particularly in rural and underserved communities. The proposed Rural IMPACT Project activities align with the current project plan, as the NCMHI advances system changes and new initiatives at the community, state, and national levels, building on community partnerships to support family-centered medical home implementation for all children and youth, particularly those underrepresented and from diverse communities (Goal 3). The AAP, working with MCHB, would establish an expert workgroup and operational structure to guide the initiative; develop and issue a solicitation and scoring process and conduct a review of applications to make recommendations for participating communities; develop a quality improvement package; identify systems-level measures to monitor process and progress of individual communities and the initiative as a whole, and provide structured technical assistance to the selected communities.

    In 2013, following objective review of its application, HRSA

at the community, state, and national levels, building on community 
partnerships to support family-centered medical home implementation for

establish an expert workgroup and operational structure to guide the 
initiative; develop and issue a solicitation and scoring process and 
conduct a review of applications to make recommendations for 
participating communities; develop a quality improvement package; 
identify systems-level measures to monitor process and progress of 
individual communities and the initiative as a whole, and provide 
structured technical assistance to the selected communities.
