Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems: Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three Program
This program provides funding to build integrated maternal and early childhood systems of care that promote early developmental health and family well-being and increase family-centered access to care and engagement of the prenatal-to-3 year old (P–3) population. Proposed projects should identify and address barriers in access to high quality, effective early childhood and family services for underserved P–3 populations, including rural populations and specific racial/ethnic groups.
Awardees will work towards the objectives:
- Increase the number of family and professional leaders engaged in state-level maternal and early childhood initiatives
- Develop, strengthen, and implement a cross-sector state-level maternal and early childhood strategic plan that integrates health with other P–3 systems and programs
- Increase the participation of health providers (including obstetricians and pediatricians) in coordinated intake and referral systems (CIRS) or other centralized intake and data coordination efforts for the maternal and P–3 population
- Demonstrate progress toward critical policy and financing changes, as identified in state maternal and early childhood strategic plans
- Set specific and measurable P–3 health equity goals in the statewide early childhood strategic plan
Eligible applicants are domestic public and private entities, including tribes, tribal organizations, and faith-based and community-based organizations.
