Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 162 / Monday, August 22, 2016 / Notices potential long term effects caused by lead exposure, this single source emergency funding opportunity must solely be available to the Greater Flint Health Coalition (GFHC) which is uniquely positioned to meet the goals of the emergency cooperative agreement based on the organization’s location, capacity, partnerships, resources, prior experience, and ability to begin implementing the project immediately. Prior to the water crisis in Flint, the GFHC worked to significantly improve the health status of Flint residents by establishing a common health agenda and instituting a shared measurement system among local hospitals with mutually reinforcing health activities. In addition, this organization currently administers programs that involve a variety of constituents important to reaching and enrolling children in Medicaid and CHIP, such as schools, health homes, safety net providers, and various government organizations. The GFHC’s presence in the greater Flint community enabled them to become an early leader in alerting the public about the lead exposure related to the Flint water system. Utilizing the funding under this single-source award, the GFHC will be able to immediately hire an outreach and enrollment coordinator to educate beneficiaries about Medicaid and CHIP services available to affected children and families in Flint, Michigan and to coordinate community-based activities designed to support Medicaid enrollment for eligible children. More broadly, this funding will enable the GFHC to address the lead exposure related to the Flint water system by promoting critical public health, medical, and community-based services and interventions that address and mitigate the detrimental short and long term impacts of lead. Due to these reasons and the GFHC’s cross sector collaboration with Genesee County’s public health leadership, physicians, hospitals, and health insurers, GFHC has the full capacity to begin implementation of the project tasks immediately.
