HRSA announces the award of a supplement in the amount of $300,000 per year for two years for the National Center for Medical Home Implementation (NCMHI) Cooperative Agreement cooperative agreement. The purpose of the NCMHI cooperative agreement, as stated in the funding opportunity announcement, is to: (1) Support a national resource and assistance effort to implement and spread the medical home model to all children and youth, particularly children with special health care needs (CSHCN), children who are vulnerable and/or medically underserved, and pediatric populations served by state public health programs, MCHB and HRSA; and (2) support activities of the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) grantees to improve children's health through innovative community-based efforts, and community and statewide partnerships among professionals in health, education, social services, government, and business. The supplement will permit the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the cooperative agreement awardee, during the budget periods of 7/1/2016-6/30/2017 and 7/1/2017-6/30/2018, to provide technical assistance to the Rural IMPACT communities as they employ two-generation strategies to more effectively support children living in poverty in rural communities, including the implementation and spread of the family-centered medical home model of health care.
