Grants for Health

Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) program aims 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. 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. This community based program brings innovative services to communities as determined by local needs assessments. Bright Futures Guidelines can be found at  Click link here
