Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to USA and territories community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations to provide services to children with special health care needs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to promote optimal health and well-being for CYSHCN and their families by advancing a well-functioning system of services.

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2F HICs) Program. The purpose of this program is to provide information, education, technical assistance, and peer support to families of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who serve them.

This program will fund one F2F HIC in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, 5 U.S. Territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands); and up to 3 F2F HICs to serve American Indians/Alaska Natives.

Program Goal: The goal of the F2F HIC Program is to promote optimal health and well-being for CYSHCN and their families by advancing a well-functioning system of services in which families and health professionals partner in health care decision-making. Recipients funded under this program are expected to integrate the following Family/Professional Partnership Program principles throughout project policies and activities: CYSHCN and their families should receive care in systems that are: (1) family-centered, (2) culturally and linguistically appropriate, and (3) which promote shared decision-making between families of CYSHCN, health professionals, and appropriate state and community organizations.

Program Objectives: The recipient will be responsible for collecting data and reporting annually on these objectives for the purposes of monitoring and evaluating the overall effectiveness of the program. Baselines for new recipients will be established for these measures within the first year of the award. Competing continuing recipients will use data from the last year (FY 2021) of the most recent award cycle as their baseline.

  • By May 31, 2027, increase by 10 percent from baseline the number of families of CYSHCN and professionals who have received information, education, and/or training from F2F HICs.
  • By May 31, 2027, increase by 10 percent from baseline the number of CYSHCN and families from underrepresented and diverse communities trained to partner at all levels of shared decision-making.
  • By May 31, 2027, increase by 10 percent from baseline the number and type of state agencies/programs and community-based organizations assisted in providing services/information to families of CYSHCN.
