Grants for close to $100,000 to assist parents of children with disabilities and special needs. The mission of the funding agency is to improve the physical and mental health, safety, and well-being of the MCH population – all women, infants, children, adolescents and their families. The purpose of the available funding is to provide vital information to facilitate informed decision making for parents of the aforementioned populations.
The funding agency seeks to establish statewide information centers to accomplish its goals. These family-staffed/run centers will assist families in making informed decisions about health care in order to promote good treatment decisions, cost-effectiveness, and improved health outcomes for such children.
The law requires that these centers will: 1) assist families of children with special health care needs (CSHCN) to make informed choices about health care in order to promote good treatment decisions, cost effectiveness and improved health outcomes; 2) provide information regarding the health care needs of, and resources available for, CSHCN; 3) identify successful health delivery models for CSHCN; 4) develop with representatives of health care providers, managed care organization, health care purchasers, and appropriate State agencies, a model for collaboration between families of CSHCN and health professionals; 5) provide training and guidance regarding the care of CSHCN; 6) conduct outreach activities to families of CSHCN, health professionals, schools and other appropriate entities; and 7) be staffed by such families who have expertise in Federal and State public and private health care systems; and by health professionals.
