This announcement solicits applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 for the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) program. The purpose of HTPC is 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, not research projects. It is anticipated that HTPC grants will be awarded to approximately eight (8) recipients. 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. In FY 2010, projects served 2,990 pregnant women, 15,975 infants, children and youth, 3,424 infants, children and youth with special health care needs, and 1,415 women (not pregnant). In terms of race/ethnicity, 55.6% of individuals served were Hispanic/Latino; 33.6% were not Hispanic/Latino while 40.0% of individuals served were White; 18.1% were Black/African-American; 4.8% were More than One Race; 2.0% were Asian; 0.30% were Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander; and 0.30% were American Indian/Alaska Native. In FY 2011, 44 HTPC grantees indicated that 32.3% of funds went into direct health care services, 34.7% into enabling services, 25.6% into population-based services and 7.4% into infrastructure building services (Data from the MCHB Discretionary Grants Information System, 2010). MCHB encourages organizations to develop proposals that incorporate and build upon the goals, objectives, guidelines and materials of the Bright Futures for Infants, Children and Adolescents initiative to improve the quality of health promotion and preventive services in the context of family and community. Complete information about the Bright Futures initiative and downloadable versions of the Bright Futures Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children and Adolescents, Third Edition and other Bright Futures materials, can be found at .
